The iSANZ Awards are fast approaching and now is the time to secure tickets to the exclusive event, to be held at Te Papa on Tuesday, November 21.
The Awards will be held as part of the iSANZ Gala Evening, hosted by MC and award-winning media personality Te Radar (Andrew J Lumsden).
The Gala Evening will bring together finalists, security experts and attendees for a formal, seated dinner function and the Awards.
Tickets include complimentary pre-dinner drinks, a three-course dinner, beverages and entertainment.
For those who wish to host groups, ‘table of 10’ booking are available, offering additional opportunities for branding.

Categories include Best International Superstar, Best Security Project / Initiative; Best Security Awareness Campaign; Best Security Company of the Year; and Up-and-coming Cybersecurity Star.
The 2017 iSANZ Awards will be the third inaugural Awards ceremony. Last year’s winners included PwC, Air New Zealand, RedShield and NetSafe who all walked away with awards, while Cisco’s Kate Pearce walked away with the ‘Best International Superstar’ award.

The dress code is Business/Cocktail.
