Invitation to Sponsor - 2018 Gala Dinner

 
 
Invitation to Sponsor
 
The RFUANZ committee are excited to announce that the 2018 annual Gala Dinner will be held at St Matthews In The City, Auckland, on Wednesday 2nd May 2018. St Matthews is a two minute walk from Sky City & its stunning Gothic architecture will create the perfect backdrop for another fantastic Gala Dinner. The event will be organised by Candice Van Dyk & Debby Morgan & together they have some exciting sponsorship opportunities for your business.
 
 [ Changes for 2018 ]
 
 After a successful 2017 event, we look forward to continuing building on this success & ensuring positive exposure for your sponsorship investment. We conducted a survey after the gala dinner and asked for feedback regarding the awards system. In consideration of this feedback for 2018 we will now award the top three in each category a certificate, with our gold award winner being presented with a trophy & voucher.
 After a number of years, we feel the ‘innovation’ award has been a difficult  area  for people to make nominations. This year we have included an innovation component in the project excellent & sales/support award, and we are excited to announce the creation of a new award -  'Apprentice/Trainee of the Year’. We feel our industry needs to place a priority on training new entrants & we should promote & celebrate their achievements.
 
We have a number of sponsorship opportunities for you to select from depending on your strategy and budget. Whether you are looking to make your mark on the 2018 event, cement your involvement & commitment to the industry, or increase your profile, we believe our sponsorship opportunities provide you with plenty to choose from depending on your strategy & budget. Due to moving the conference to Auckland, we have had a slight increase in overheads. We have done our very best to absorb the majority of these costs & keep increases as minimal as possible.
 
 [ The Next Step ]
 
We are calling for expressions of interest for the 2018 Gala Dinner Sponsorship. The ongoing support from our regular sponsors over the past few years is greatly appreciated and we would love the opportunity to work with you again. In the interest of fairness and transparency with our sponsorship we invite all companies who would like to become involved in the 2018 event to come forward. If we receive more than one application per category, we will conduct an independent draw.
