The HSBC Export Southland Gala Dinner will be held Friday 13 November at the Ascot Park Hotel.   The Export Southland Trust will host over 200 guests from export businesses and their supporters at the prestigious dinner.

This year’s Export Southland Awards Dinner will have an interesting new twist.

In lieu of the traditional biennial September Export Southland Recognition Awards, which is facilitated by the Southland Chamber of Commerce, the trust felt it was more appropriate to have an evening of networking and entertainment recognising the trials and tribulations of a difficult year, due to Covid-19.
