Internet Industry Awards 2010

Recently Xero attended the second NZ Internet Industry Awards banquet and ceremony established by the Liz Dengate Thrush Foundation in recognition of companies and organizations using the internet to make a difference in New Zealand.

There are five categories and we were proud to win the Best Business Application award last year.

This year’s celebration was a very slick and glamorous affair held in the Parliament Banquet Hall again. We didn’t enter but our CTO Craig (pictured left) who accepted our award last year, was called on to hand out certificates and the award to finalists in the Best Business Application category – won this year by StarNow.

It’s great going to these events and seeing how others are building businesses online. What’s rather humbling is the growing number of people who know what Xero is and hearing them say how great they think it is. We were also really chuffed to realize that in four of the five categories, the winners were Xero customers!

The New Zealand Internet Industry Awards website has loads of photos taken on the night and the full list of categories and winners.

P.S. Linda Clarke was a great MC and the mini pavlovas and lemon meringue pies for dessert were delicious (hmmmm, not the first time I’ve mentioned dessert at such an event – I go for more than that, honest)!
