What to expect at The Industry Awards 2018

Whether you’ve attended the Industry Awards before or this year will be your first time, here’s the low down on what to expect!

Where and when

Cordis Hotel Auckland

We’re excited to be hosting The Industry Awards at the beautiful Cordis Hotel in Auckland in The Great Room on November 11th.

The event starts at 6pm and we encourage you to arrive on time to ensure you make the most of your evening!

What to expect

The Industry Awards is a glamorous event celebrating the best business, training and creative talent in the New Zealand hair, beauty and barbering industries. You can expect an incredible experience to match!

Your ticket to The Industry Awards includes an evening of celebration, entertainment, drinks, delicious food and the opportunity to catch up with everyone in the industry. When you arrive, you’ll be treated to drinks and delicious canapes until the ceremony starts at 7pm. There’ll be a break around 8pm to give you a chance to enjoy your amazing dinner and chat with everyone at the event – not just the ten people at your table. After all the awards have all been announced, the DJ will start the music! The dance floor will be open until 11.30pm.

Dress code

The Industry Awards is your opportunity to dress to impress! Every year we love seeing how glam everyone is as they arrive.

The dress code is cocktail, so suits and ties, party dresses, or fancy skirts and tops.

What to bring

There are a few things you won’t want to forget:

  • Your team. Take the opportunity to spend time with your team outside of the salon, spa or shop and really celebrate your success. If you’re not based in Auckland, make a weekend of it! Remember, if you purchase a table of 10, you’ll only pay for 9 tickets. You can purchase tickets here.
  • Your tickets. Print them out or bring them on your phone. Having your tickets makes everything a lot quicker and easier for you and for us.
  • Your wonderful personality and energy so you can dance the night away.


Congratulations once again to our finalists from The Industry Awards team!

If you’re a finalist, you’ll need to purchase tickets for you and your guests (if you haven’t already) so you can celebrate together.

If you win an award, we’ll call you on stage to accept it. A professional photographer will take a photo of the winner and their trophy off stage.

Travel and accommodation

We hope you’re already making arrangements for your travel and stay in Auckland. Make sure you get in early while prices are still low. Grab a seat and Wotif usually have great deals.
