By popular demand we are excited to announce that we are offering the WOW Club for a second year as an additional benefit for those purchasing tickets to the 2019 World of WearableArt Awards Show during the Preferential Period: 01 – 28 February 2019.
During the month of February not only will you have the opportunity to be the first to get your tickets to this year’s show and secure the very best seats in the house, but you will also automatically be in the 2019 WOW Club.
What does that mean?
The WOW Club has been created to reward those that purchase tickets during the Preferential Period, we want to give back to our fans who purchase first and this year we’re doing that through exclusive prize draws and opportunities to experience even more WOW!
But be quick! Membership to the WOW Club is only valid to those who purchase tickets during the Preferential Period (01 – 28 Feb).
Our fans tell us that they would love to see more behind the scenes of World of WearableArt, so this year we’ve created two major prizes for the ultimate WOW fans!
There are two prize draws in 2019, each an incredible money can’t buy opportunity to experience more from the world of WOW…
The first major prize draw for one lucky ticket purchaser and up to three guests is the ultimate WOW in Wellington experience! On one of the days that you’re in Wellington to see the show, enjoy the best that the Coolest Little Capital has to offer as well as exclusive WOW experiences.
Get to know WOW Founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff and Competition Director Heather Palmer and take the opportunity to ask them all things WOW! From the growth of the show, to their most memorable moments and garments; get the scoop on what you’ve always wanted to know about our world.
You’ll have the enviable opportunity to watch a garment come to life right before your eyes as you meet one of the WOW models wearing a finalist garment, as well as experience a whole other world behind the scenes on an intimate a backstage tour. We’ll introduce you to some of the team who are going to create the unimaginable spectacular that you will see this show season and you’ll be invited to join us, members of the WOW team, for pre-show drinks and canapes.
After a full day immersing yourself in the ultimate WOW experience, we invite you to take your seats, sit back, and prepare yourself to journey out of this world…
Please note: If you purchase tickets during the Preferential Period you, as the ticket purchaser, will automatically be entered into the draw to win The Ultimate WOW in Wellington Experience. There is only one entry per ticket order. The lucky winner will be drawn at random in March 2019 and will be contacted shortly after this. The prize is valid for the ticket purchaser and up to three guests of their choosing.
The world of WOW extends much further than our three-week show season in Wellington. WOW HQ is based in Nelson where we have a team working year-round on everything that is WOW. Our HQ is home to the National WOW Museum, where the latest finalist garments are exhibited on display after the show season ends. We also house our historic garment collection here, finalist garments all the way back from the first ever show in 1987! Right here in Nelson we prepare garments to join our International Touring Exhibition (which has most recently exhibited in St Petersburg, Russia) and when the World of WearableArt Awards Competition closes each year, we receive hundreds of garments ready to be showcased to our judging panel who meet here at WOW HQ to start the official judging process.
Our second major prize draw is an incredibly special opportunity that will give another WOW fan the opportunity to extend their 2019 WOW experience beyond the 2019 show season. The winner of this prize, and up to three friends of their choosing, will be flown to meet us here in Nelson (from any New Zealand domestic airport) for the opportunity to see the garments that have already WOW’d you on stage, up-close and in extraordinary detail on display at the Museum. You will enjoy a personal guided tour around the Museum with WOW Founder, Dame Suzie Moncrieff, and Competition Director, Heather Palmer – your opportunity to ask everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the world of WOW!
We’ll also give you an exclusive look around WOW HQ, including our wardrobe area where we house the historic collection of garments, and the opportunity to meet the team behind WOW. We’ll take you out to a stunning waterfront restaurant in Nelson where you can relive all the excitement of your 2019 World of WearableArt experience – at the Awards Show and here in Nelson – before you fly home at the end of another WOW day.
Please note: All tickets purchased during the Preferential Period will be marked “WOW Club”. After watching the show, as you leave the TSB Arena you will be given the opportunity to enter your ticket into the prize draw to be in to win this incredible trip to Nelson. The lucky winner will be drawn at random in October 2019 and will be contacted shortly after this. The prize is valid for the winner of the draw and up to three guests of their choosing.
As well as our two 2019 major prize draws, we are also running weekly giveaways to our WOW Club ticket purchasers! From 6 March – 31 August, we will be drawing one lucky seat number from a ticket purchased within the Preferential Period at random every Wednesday.
We’re excited to be giving away all sorts of prizes to give you more WOW this year; from merchandising vouchers and offers from our Partners, to backstage tours and pre-show drinks at the Show. Keep your eyes on your inbox to see if a seat within your ticket order is one of our winners each week!
