The inaugural Beef + Lamb New Zealand Awards will be livestreamed giving anyone with an interest in the Awards and the red meat sector an opportunity to join the celebrations.
B+LNZ’s CEO Sam McIvor says tickets to the Awards Dinner, which will be held in Napier on Thursday 29 September, were sold out within a very short time, so livestreaming the evening event will allow anyone to watch as the finalists of the eight award categories are introduced and the winners announced.
“While we were delighted that the tickets were snapped up so quickly, we were aware that a lot of people who would like to have attended the Awards Dinner were unable to get a ticket.”
“Livestreaming will allow anyone, anywhere to be part of the evening where we will recognise those individuals who help make this country’s red meat sector world-leading.”
Mr McIvor says B+LNZ, along with Awards partner Farmlands and category sponsors, has been very pleased at how well the B+LNZ Awards have been supported, both in quality and quantity of entries and in ticket sales.
“Aside of the COVID-19 disruptions, we could not have wished for a better start to the inaugural B+LNZ Awards. The support from industry highlights that there was a real need for a platform from which we could showcase and celebrate the individuals working within our world-leading red meat industry.”
