The Vision

supreme chevron 2x

The New Zealand Hospitality Awards have been re-created with a fresh new identity to bring New Zealand’s burgeoning (yet dispersed) hospitality community back together.

Cafés, restaurants, bars and other hospitality businesses will be at the core of the revival to our kiwi way of life. These establishments will give the community a reason to come out, sit around the table, pick up their knives and forks, and be served by hospo folk doing a world-class job in the ultimate come-back.

Every region in New Zealand is home to hospitality and worth celebrating, now more than ever we need encourage and support new and established industry leaders who are returning the vibrant hospitality industry to its former glory.

The Restaurant Association of New Zealand is committed to providing specific industry events to create a platform for achievement, a place where we can recognise excellence and reward those that make it happen in this industry.

This year we will be acknowledging those in Northland, Wellington and Canterbury.
