HIANZ general manager Phil Tindle and president Tim Mikkelsen, recently attended the HRIA convention held on the Gold Coast 29 April thru 02 May. A number of HIANZ members also were also in attendance.

The conference was a well organised industry event. The Gold Coast convention centre is the perfect location for the conference that included a large trade show and a new outdoor expo on the north lawn of the Gold Coast convention centre.

Keynote speaks were relevant and diverse. Six seminars were held throughout the event including topics such as the future of hire software, social media, party & events, HR and EWP/ telehandlers.

Of particular interest to HIANZ was the HRNet support service that is free of charge to members as part of their annual membership. HRIA Members have access to legal advisors specialising in employment law, conflict resolution. A similar scheme will be considered by the HIANZ board at their next meeting.

International guest speakers included, Don Ahern (owner of Ahern Rentals ) who now holds the majority shareholding of Snorkel International, and current American Rental Association board chairman Mike Blaisdell.

Special thanks to Phil and the HRIA team for making the Kiwi's so welcome! Another great event HIRE industry event.
