A Great Night at The Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards

August 2013

Electrix was proud to be a sponsor of the Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards held in Auckland on August 14th.

Our congratulations go to all the winners on their achievements throughout the year that enabled them to secure these prestigious awards. We also would like to acknowledge the efforts of the finalists in each category, as we are sure that the quality of all the nominees meant that the judges decision was not easy.

The 630 guests who attended on the night enjoyed fantastic food, some memorable speeches and of course the delicious box of Electrix chocolates that every attendee received on the night (sorry they're all gone...)

As one of the few events where the whole industry has the chance to get together, the event also proved to be a great opportunity to catch-up with colleagues and friends from across the industry.

As always, an enjoyable night was over far too quickly and we look forward to next years event!
