Welcome to the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards


2021 Exercise Industry Awards

Live and Virtual, 10 December, 7-9pm

The Exercise Industry Awards celebrates the industry and individuals that have stood out over this past year.
This year the Exercise industry is going to be able to celebrate in a new way. Rather than our normal sit down event, this year we will be throwing a free live event with 3 ways to view, for not just nominees, but for everyone!
1) Watch from anywhere. Invite anyone (your flatmate Mel, Dave down the street or Granny over in Australia) to join you. This way you can share in the excitement together.
2) Throw a viewing party. Invite friends or family over and make a night of it (dress up if you like).
3) Have a work party. If your facility or someone working there is part of this event, get together and support them.

The purpose of the awards remains unchanged – to acknowledge and celebrate the excellence of facilities, organisations and individuals in all its diversity.

We will post information here closer to the date with information on how you will be able to watch and join in on the celebrations.

Some important updates on the 2021 Exercise Industry Awards:

  • Our categories remain the same, so whatever your role or type of business there is an award for you/your business
  • The judging criteria has been amended to reflect the impact of Covid-19, including client numbers and finances.
  • The live judging will still take place (using a panel of specialist judges like in previous years), but will be virtual.
