The Deloitte Top 200 Awards

The Deloitte Top 200 Awards are held annually to recognise and celebrate outstanding individual and management team performances among New Zealand’s largest companies and trading organisations.


Now in its 31st year, the Deloitte Top 200 Awards are well established as the pre-eminent platform for showcasing the best of New Zealand business. The awards recognise the depth and range of our business community, featuring the industries and sectors that underpin New Zealand’s success.


From the Top 200 indices, significant contenders are identified by an independent judging panel for a series of awards. Traditionally the Deloitte Top 200 programme culminates with a black-tie gala in late November / early December where the achievements of award finalists and winners are recognised.

2020 Programme Update

Recently we’ve all experienced challenges we couldn’t have predicted - a true exercise in resilience, testing the fortitude of leaders and the strength of strategies, and driving substantial shifts in how society interacts with business.


As such, this year, the Deloitte Top 200 awards will recognise those businesses that have gone beyond simply responding and recovering, and are taking this opportunity to transform and rebuild for a stronger future.


Traditionally, the Deloitte Top 200 culminates with a large black-tie gala dinner in late November where the achievements of the award finalists and winners are celebrated.


Given recent considerations around large gatherings, and with many businesses focused on their post-COVID response, this year’s Top 200 finalists and winners will be acknowledged at a more muted awards presentation over lunch in early December and with support from the programme's exclusive media partner, NZME.


At this stage, our intention is to return with the Top 200 black-tie gala event in 2021.
