Pullman Hotel Auckland
Pullman Auckland General Manager Rob McIntyre said, “The Award Category chosen by us has a great synergy to our business as we pride ourselves on delivering a high standard of service from our front desk to our international restaurant.”
“We strive to create innovative culinary creations that are rich in abundant flavours and appreciate the time and patience it takes to achieve this feat. We are proud to be able to recognise this achievement in another business as a sponsor of this Award,” Mr McIntyre said.
Pan World Travel Mangere
Pan World Travel Mangere Managing Director Nimesh Kumar Amin said he was delighted to sponsor Cocktails at the Awards Night function to be held at Sky City Convention Centre on Monday, November 14, 2011.
“I have been attending the Awards Night dinner since its inception. It is gratifying to note that not only the event, but also the Awards Project itself has grown from strength to strength. It is heartening to note that the Awards categories have evolved in response to public opinion. This is also significant,” he said.
Triangle TV Chief Executive Director Jim Blackman said his Company was happy to be involved with a strong team of sponsors.
“It is encouraging to see that the Indian community is so well organised across the board for its talents in so many different business sectors, he said.
“We believe that the Indian Newslink Indian Business Awards play an on-going vital and important role by acknowledging the tremendous business acumen and entrepreneurial drive that contributes so much to the broader New Zealand society. Not only do they recognise the achievements of today but throws down the challenge for business excellence for tomorrow,” he said.
Radio Tarana Managing Director Robert Khan said that he was proud to be associated with such a prestigious event, which has grown from strength to strength.
“It is another milestone year and we are excited about the Big Day. Indian Newslink deserves the full credit for having created a professional and quality event that showcases the success of Indian businesses in New Zealand.
Mr Khan said that Radio Tarana has been sponsoring the Business Excellence in Marketing category for the past three years since it brings quality entrants from all industries and acknowledges the drive for competitive advantage.
“The Sponsors Dinner (held on September 26, 2011 at Stamford Plaza Hotel) was another great addition to this evolving Awards event. Every year, the organisers do something different and this year, the Sponsors Dinner was a great networking event,” he said.
As mentioned in our October 1, 2011 issue, Indian Newslink hosted a dinner for Sponsors on September 26 at Stamford Plaza Hotel in Auckland.
Managing Director & Publisher Ravin Lal said it was a significant event, which enabled Sponsors to network and compare notes.
“It was also an occasion to apprise our Sponsors of the Gala Black Tie Cocktails, Dinner and Awards Presentation Night,” he said.
