The expanded NZ Compare Awards recognise excellence and achievement in the NZ broadband and energy sectors

A lot has changed in the last year, we have all experienced hardship but with that, comes growth. After four hugely successful years, the Broadband Compare Awards have grown too and in 2021 will become the NZ Compare Awards, which will now recognise excellence and achievement within New Zealand’s broadband and energy sectors. We felt it was about time.

The event will continue to be the New Zealand Broadband industry's premier gala awards but now, due to popular demand, will also pay respect to the hugely valued energy sector with the addition of a number of power specific awards, celebrating the industry’s ever-growing commitment to consumer needs.

First held in 2017 with a humble 100 guests, 2021 will see over 300 key industry members attend, what we are confident will be an incredible evening at the Hunua Rooms within Auckland’s newly refurbished Aotea Centre. We hope you will join us on 3rd November 2021 - save the date!

This night typically sees those in influencer and decision-maker roles in the audience, providing an ideal vehicle for networking and branding your organisation as one that recognises excellence and celebrates competition.

This prestigious event will recognise the companies that provide New Zealanders with the very best products and services across both industries.

Our categories are consumer driven and voted, including People’s Choice, Provider of the year, Best Customer Support, Best Value Plan and many more. It is your opportunity to be confident in the talent and vision your company has worked so hard towards.

The NZ Compare Award winners will be selected based on a combination of criteria. These include consumer surveys and reviews via the suite of NZ Compare websites, decisions from our expert judging panel, as well as third party data and information collated throughout the previous year.

Online surveys from 100s of household decision-makers collected as part of our Opinion Compare Brand Reputation Index provide additional consumer data to help our judges to decide, amongst other categories, the best providers for value, customer service and bundled plans.

A new awards specific website will be launched shortly, so watch this space!
