NZEA's vision is to provide leadership and representation to inspire a world class events industry.
The NZEA is a voluntary organisation formed under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 on 12 September 2005. The Association was established as the New Zealand Association of Event Professionals (NZAEP) in response to industry demand for a recognised body to represent the burgeoning events industry in New Zealand.
The Association's principle was to bring professionals together to focus on the industry as a whole and to act as a voice for that industry and its members.
In 2017, members voted to change the Association's name to the New Zealand Events Association (NZEA), to better reflect the ever-increasing breadth of the New Zealand events industry.
The current Board is made up of eight influential figures in the event landscape who give their time voluntarily in this governance role.
