About

The team at The Organiser are organisers too, which is why they understand the challenges people face in creating, planning and delivering events. No matter how big or small, long or short, they all take hard work and a lot of effort to make happen.

In 2021, The Organiser was launched to provide people with easy access to others who can help; to provide up to date information and event news; to highlight inspiring people and ideas; and to offer easy to use templates and planning tools.

Beginning its journey in the Bay of Plenty, then moving from region to region across New Zealand, The Organiser will grow into a comprehensive database of people, services and tools, which will help make your event organising experience the best ever.

The team at the Organiser get events. Let them help you to Get Sorted, Get Informed and Get Organised.
