The New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards are sector-wide awards recognising the individuals and teams who have truly excelled in our industry. While other awards focus on companies and vendors, the Excellence in IT Awards exclusively celebrates our people.


ITx and Awards Gala Dinner

Geoff Dolan hosts the 2021 Excellence in IT Awards dinner, an action-packed evening full of surprises and celebrating 60 years of tech innovation in New Zealand in style.

ITx dinners are legendary. Live entertainment, awesome dinner, open bar... and a bunch of tech folks who love to party!

The dinner will be awesome - from one of New Zealand's top entertainers, surprises and entertainment, delicious BBQ-style feast, open bar and maybe even an after-party until late! Really late.



Celebrate, kiwi style

This year we're doing things a bit different - rather than black tie, we're celebrating kiwi style with a BBQ-themed feast, awards, and dancing until late.


We're also celebrating 60 years of tech innovation in New Zealand, so look forward to a few surprises!

Culinary feast

Dinner will be a family style culinary feast with a BBQ theme, with platters delivered to, and shared with, your table. The meal has been designed to cater for everyone while making even the most picky foodies happy!

Wash the meal down with matching wines, beer or non-alcoholic drinks - included in your ticket.


Sector-wide Awards Collaboration

The Excellence in IT Awards are coordinated by ITP in partnership with a range of IT-related bodies. This is a true collaboration of 11 industry and professional bodies (including ITP):
