For 2020, the New Zealand Building Industry Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner has transitioned from a single venue event to a multiple location event held simultaneously across venues in Auckland (The Cordis), Wellington (Te Papa), and Christchurch (Town Hall). Connected via a virtual platform, the event will be delivered in a format similar to a television network’s election night special, with finalists attending the various venues, and the MC cutting to live feeds from each venue for the presentations of the awards. The event will also be live-streamed.

The Cordis Hotel – 83 Symonds Street, Auckland CBD
Te Papa – 5 Cable Street, Wellington CBD
Christchurch Town Hall – 86 Kilmore Street, Christchurch CBD

EVENT PROGRAMME: Friday, 30 October 2020
