ZAA Australia Date and Venue announced
Published: 16 July 2017 (570 Views)
The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards International has announced the 28 October as the date of the debut Australian version of the globally-spreading award series. The Awards will be held at the beautiful Hilton Hotel Adelaide. Tickets are available and can be purchased directly from www.zimachievers.com/aus

Nominations have since opened and people have until 31 July to put forward names of Zimbabwean persons and businesses they believe are excelling and have potential to win various categories.

"We urge people to send in time their nominations of Zimbabweans living in Australia and to also purchase tickets as this a great opportunity to network and bring progressive Zimbabweans together, the inaugural event will be a unique opportunity for the many Zimbabweans in Australia to celebrate their own successes, said Shepherd Mutusva, ZAA Australia Country Director

The Zimbabwean community Down Under, as Australia is commonly known, has grown over the years; with many venturing and excelling in different economic fields like in other countries such as the UK, USA and South Africa where Zimbabwean communities have traditionally settled. Interestingly Australia has seen a growing number of Zimbabweans moving to settle there for various reasons, with some individuals having been in that country for decades and doing very well.

"As such, the Australian version is expected to be just as exciting as the editions we have held in UK, US and South Africa," said Mutusva.

Meanwhile ZAA International has announced that the USA edition will be held on 11 November at the Marriot Hotel, Dallas while the South African edition is scheduled for 2 December this year with venue yet to be confirmed. People are being encouraged to send in their nominations for all the ZAAs through the website www.zimachievers.com and selecting the country of choice.

The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards is held in countries where there is a sizable community of nationals from the southern African country. The global event has become the epitome of excellence among Zimbabweans who have chosen to live outside their home country, like many other diaspora communities from across the globe.

The high profile awards, founded by Conrad Mwanza in 2010 have become the highlight of celebration for professional and artistic achievements by Zimbabweans in the UK and has spread to South Africa, USA and now Australia.
