The New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards | He Tohu Mauri Ora awards night will be a glittering black-tie event for more than 550 people at the Auckland waterfront’s Shed 10 on 29 February 2020. 


Doors will open at 6pm, however we ask that finalists and judges arrive at 5.45pm to allow time for photo's prior. The three-course meal and ceremony are due to end at 10.15pm. The dance floor will then open until late.



The Awards is a Black Tie event, so think ball gowns and tuxedo's..... however we know it's going to be HOT, so if you're more comfortable in a cocktail dress or suit, we are sure you will look just as nice. Shed 10 is an older building with a wooden floor, so we also recommend being conscious of your footwear.


Health & Safety:

We ask that all guests drink responsibly and take appropriate transport at the end of the event. Intoxicated persons will be asked to leave. 


We recommend organising transport to the venue as there is no on-site parking and a large portion of Quay St is under construction.


Remember to share your photos on your preferred social media platform with #PrimaryStarsNZ.
