BOTAB 2021 Another COVID Casualty

Head to for more info!

​Flying Fish and The Comms Council regret to inform that the revered 13th ‘Battle of the Ad Bands’ will now be pushed out to 2022, due to current Covid restrictions in Auckland.

The advertising industry’s musical rebels will have to sit tight for another year, as the originally set 2020 BOTAB gets hit yet again. Being the most anticipated date on the advertising calendar, a socially-distanced-Zoom-band-practiced BOTAB just wasn’t going to cut it.

BOTAB 13 will be back next year, bringing together a crowd of 500 of the most influential creative minds. This time, with a bit of ‘third-time’ luck.

Sponsored by Giltrap Group, Sixt, Audi E-tron, Whittaker’s, Radio Hauraki, TRB, Prego, Much Moore Ice Cream, Apex Insurance, Fortis Travel and Huffer.

Date TBC in 2022.
