Our sponsors

The TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards would not be possible without the fantastic sponsors who share our commitment to recognising marketing excellence in New Zealand.

The Awards are run by NZ Marketing magazine with the support of NZ Marketing Association and in 2023 are proudly supported by the following sponsors.

Premier sponsor

Te Reo Tātaki (TVNZ) translates to “the leading voice’’.  Our purpose is to inspire the conversations of Aotearoa, and enrich the lives of New Zealanders. We do this by sharing the moments that matter with our communities, regions and people. Each day, we reach more than 2 million Kiwis across our channels and platforms. Local news and entertainment is at the heart of what we do. Our breadth and depth of content means we connect with audiences across the motu.

TVNZ is honoured to help deliver the TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards and celebrate our industry’s brightest lights. The Awards give us an opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and outstanding achievements of our thriving industry.

New Zealand has more radio frequencies per capita than any other country in the world. The good news is that gives advertisers exceptional opportunities to target both niche and national audiences – but it can make the campaign planning process a little daunting!

We take pride in working alongside advertising agencies and their clients to provide the most comprehensive, effective and impartial radio solutions possible.

At Stuff, we follow no-one.

Nearly 3.5M Kiwis every month sit up and take notice of what we do. Which explains some of the best engagement you’ll find, across platforms like Stuff.co.nz, Neighbourly, Stuff Events and a whole heap of much-loved newspapers and magazines. Working with us means you tap into these platforms. Enjoy real engagement, delivered at scale. Powerful solutions and integrated channels. All backed by a commitment to help you strengthen your brand, engage your audience, and achieve your business goals.

We exist to help NZ businesses reach more of their perfect customers and then do cool marketing stuff that turns them into raving fans. We started small so we get the challenges other SMEs face with marketing. We specialise in a range of areas – marketing, data, insights, branding. The two most important elements we believe in are that: Marketing works best when it’s multi-channel (where you’re offering your customers different sales channels to engage and purchase from you, like social media, mobile apps, your website, in print and physical retail stores). Secondly, data and insights are extremely powerful. They help you to understand who your best customer is and how to reach them in the way they want to be found. Once you have these foundations in place – with strategies to back them up – you can be confident that your business will be able to amplify everything you do.
