Eden Park in the running for four EVANZ awards

Eden Park in the running for four EVANZ awards
November 3, 2017

Auckland's Eden Park is in the running for four Entertainment Venues Association of New Zealand (EVANZ) awards in 2017.

Eden Park is a finalist in two venue categories and two individual categories:

• Excellence in Host Responsibility Award: Eden Park
• Ticketmaster Large Venue of the Year Award: Eden Park
• Ticketek Venue Executive of the Year Award: Guy Ngata
• Simpson Grierson Operations Manager of the Year Award: Blair Christiansen.

As a finalist for the HPA Excellence in Host Responsibility Award, Eden Park has the chance of a 'three-peat', having won it for the last two years.

The Large Venue of the Year Award nomination comes in a year when Eden Park has successfully hosted three matches in the DHL Lions Series as well as a number of notable non-sporting events including the Our Neighbourhood photography exhibition, Mates on the Field WWI commemoration and ASB G9 golf event.

Eden Park Chief Executive Nick Sautner says the venue is delighted to receive the nominations, commenting “Eden Park has had an incredibly exciting year, thanks to our team and the partners we work with.

"We’ve repositioned our brand to encourage and engage patrons by creating and promoting compelling live experiences.”

Sautner says the four nominations are testament to the work of outgoing Chief Executive Guy Ngata.

Eden Park has already picked up the Business Award at this year’s Australasian Leisure Management Awards while the venue is currently hosting the inaugural ASB G9 golf event - an innovative event that has turned the famous venue into a nine-hole, in-stadium golf course.

Running from 1st to 5th November, the event is giving 1,800 players the opportunity to tee off from nine different locations around Eden Park, with a bonus Longest Putt competition in the home team changing room.

The concept is explained in the following video.

The EVANZ Awards winners will be announced in Wellington on 20th November during Association's 2017 Conference.
