Presidents Welcome

The Hire Industry Association of New Zealand, extends a very warm welcome to all HIANZ members and international guests. 

This popular meeting place, is an opportunity for business owners, CEO’S, senior managers and employees to get together in a non-competitive environment to discuss industry trends, legislative issues, talk with suppliers, attend workshops and catch up with old friends.

If you are new to the industry or have not previously attended a HIANZ Conference and Trade Show, then I urge you to take advantage of your membership privileges and join your fellow industry colleagues at this informative and stimulating Conference & Trade Show.

First time conference attendees last year said, “how they could not believe the knowledge gained through networking with other hire operators. The willingness of conference attendees to share their knowledge and experience with new comers to our industry is testament to the calibre of our membership”. 

The board and our industry suppliers look forward to hosting members and their partners at the 2017 Conference and Trade Show.

I look forward to seeing you all in Blenheim!

Tim Mikkelsen
HIANZ President
