Party & Events

No matter what the event type or location, HIANZ Events members deliver outstanding value for their clients. This is the result of much hard work and also the valuable education, business tools and services we provide.  Members and their staff can tap into valuable training courses to upskill themselves and the business owners.

Our series of courses and document guidelines developed over decades brings clarity to even the most seasoned professionals.

In addition to this, we offer our members Terms and Conditions for Hire documents, PPSR guide, Equipment Safety Data Sheets, HIANZ Test and Tag sticker products and a members shop offering Hire Specific stationery and stickers.  HIANZ also offers hire-specific insurance and legal partner support, and an eLearning system for you and your staff, we host networking events as well as the biggest Hire Conference in New Zealand every year.

HIANZ has developed the APEX Marquee programme and offers Marquee Rigger Training.  The APEX Best Practice guidance has been developed by HIANZ to help event organisers, contractors, managers and others make health and safety improvements when erecting, using and dismantling marquees and similar temporary fabric structures. The guidance represents best practice that may go further than the minimum you need to do to comply with the law.

Look out for our APEX approved Members country-wide

Selecting contractors that demonstrate competence and provide evidence for their adherence to these APEX guidelines will greatly improve safety before, during and after your event, and hence improve the risk profile of the event itself.

HIANZ runs an accreditation scheme and only admits as members those who agree to follow this guide, and to submit themselves to independent inspection to check that they do.
