The Southern Field Days near Gore are standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the biggest events in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch as finalists in the New Zealand event awards’ best regional event.

The winners of the New Zealand Association of Event Professionals (NZAEP) annual awards will be named at a gala dinner at the Auckland Museum on August 4. Whanganui’s cemetery circuit street racing won the best regional event last year.

From humble beginnings the Southern Field Days near Gore have transformed into the second largest of its kind in the country, with 42,000 visitors. Judges say the field days have produced great year on year improvements.

“The event is an amazing commitment of volunteers. It is great to see a focus on improving issues and making a real difference. It has good community involvement, especially given the size and scale compared to the population.”

The Pop Up Globe in Auckland, Wellington Remembers, the Auckland Writers Festival and the Sparks 2016 classical concert at Hagley Park in Christchurch are the other regional finalists.

 

NZAEP was set up 10 years ago to advocate for the burgeoning events industry in New Zealand. The annual awards celebrate the best of the best events in New Zealand.
