PM to present Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards

Viva-Lite is a Finalist in the Vero AwardsThe Prime Minister of New Zealand, Hon John Key will present the Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards on 28 May in Auckland at a black-tie gala dinner attended by 600 business leaders. VIVA-LITE is a finalist in the awards and will be attenting the Auckland Business Expo as well.

“Our small and medium businesses play a critical part in our economy, the Prime Minister told Bizzone managing director Sarah Trotman, organiser of the awards. “They provide Kiwis with the essential goods and services they need. They help drive innovation across our economy. And they can become – with good leadership and support – our large businesses of tomorrow.

In these challenging economic times he said it’s important that we do what we can to help small businesses succeed. “That’s why the Government has introduced a Small Business Relief Package aimed at reducing red tape and making it less expensive for small and medium businesses to manage their cash flows and pay taxes,” he says. “It’s also important to acknowledge and celebrate the organisations and individuals who help our small businesses maximise their potential. I’m looking forward to presenting at the Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards on 28 May. I hope to see you there.”

The Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards are sponsored by Vero, BDO Spicers and National Business Review and are a key event during the annual Bizzone Business Expo, New Zealand’s largest event for business.

Entries for this year’s Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards were stronger than ever says Bizzone managing director Sarah Trotman. “New Zealand businesses are being well supported by companies that are not buying into the doom and gloom mentality,” she says. “The evaluators were thoroughly impressed by the quality and higher number of entries – choosing winners this year will be extremely difficult.”

Finalists were spread throughout New Zealand and include VIVA-LITE with five others in the category one-to-many.
