Before the curtain goes up, there has to be a stage, scenery, lighting, audio, and video, and it all has to work seamlessly. Image Group NZ is in the business of providing you with peace of mind and ensuring that your event has the right equipment, expertise and skill level required.
We provide several equipment hire options to suit a range of event co-ordinator's needs and wants, from a couple of cables through to some basic wedding lighting or a complete stadium transformation with lighting, sound, draping, and much more!
We have several service levels available and can customise a solution to suit your needs:
Not sure where to start? Image Group NZ offers a free 30 minute consultation to get you started and discuss your event requirements and vision. From here we can work out what assistance you require and provide you with some options to move forward which may involve a basic quote through to a full production management service, or anywhere in between.
You collect, setup, operate, pack down and return the equipment yourself - we will provide advice and talk you through everything before you leave. Please note that not all our equipment is available for DIY.
Not all items fit in a standard vehicle so we can deliver your items at an agreed time and provide you with information on how to use the equipment. You then set up, operate and pack down the equipment as received. At the end of your event we will collect all the equipment at an agreed time.
We will set everything up and test all the equipment onsite. We then take you through how it operates; you then operate or simply turn on and off. At the end we will then come back and pack down and collect the equipment, leaving you to relax and unwind.
You provide all the specifications, layout and documentation for your event, our crew then do all the hard work for you by setting up, testing plus one or more of our technical operators will run the equipment for your event. We then pack down and collect the equipment.
We will provide crew, operators and stage management staff to an existing venue setup.
This is your hassle and worry free solution and Image Group NZ’s area of expertise. We take care of all the technical and design elements from providing concepts through to packing down and leaving the venue the same way we found it. This service is encapsulated in our Production Management service.
There's no doubt that recent events have caused individuals and organisations to find new avenues of communicating. Image Group NZ has the expertise and the equipment to help you engage with your audience, should that be purely online, or a hybrid of both in-person and online.
The kind of content, the intended audience, the level of audience participation needed, and whether the audience needs to pay to view or participate are some of the considerations to take into account in deciding whether your event is to be a live stream or a webinar, and what platform(s) best suit those needs.
If your event requires little in the way of online audience interaction, or is simply a means of enabling those who cannot attend your event in- person to be a part of what's happening, using a streaming platform such as YouTube or Facebook may be the best way to broadcast your event. Your intended online audience can be the general public and free to view, or a select audience - for example, people within your organisation, or those who have registered or paid to view.
Should your event be intended for a select audience and requires a high level of engagement, then using a webinar platform such as Zoom, GoToWebinar or WebinarJam may be the best option. Webinars allow greater interaction through the use of online tools such as Q&A, chat, and polling - such tools are useful for events such as AGMs, town halls, and product releases/demonstrations.
Image Group NZ is able to advise you on the best platform to use for your event, as well as how to plan, prepare and promote it, as well as ways to limit your audience and charge for attendance.
One of the most important aspects for any event is audio. Whether it is a single presenter, full concert or just background music we can design and implement a system suitable to your needs. Supporting a functional system is our team of technicians and experienced audio operators to ensure your performers and attendees have a great experience.

Lighting is a key part in creating any environment and can be used to emphasis a theme, create mood or simply enable people to see what is going on, on or off the stage. Our experienced lighting staff have a creative eye, understand the technology and its capabilities and can design, implement and operate a lighting solution that will enhance your event, no matter how big or small your venue or event.

At Image Group NZ we focus on providing a quality product that fits with the overall look and feel for your event. Nothing transforms, divides or enhances a space like draping.
We supply draping for a range of projects such as wedding and photography backdrops, presentation and award backdrops to elegant entrances, theme reinforcement, theatrical productions and full stadium dressings. We also use draping to cover distracting or unwanted features such as windows, inappropriate signage or unpleasantly coloured walls. All the drapes are fire retardant and we have a range of accessories to assist with unusual drapery requirements.
Our range of free-standing pole systems makes installation of draping, lightweight signage or banners possible in most situations. The frame pole system is modular so almost any width can be created by attaching additional sections and from 1m to 6m in height. In situations where the pole system is not suitable we can offer other alternatives such as rigging/trussing.

Our large range of rigging equipment enables us to provide a solution suitable to your event, venue and budget. We stock quality rigging equipment that have calculated and tested ratings. All our rigging equipment is regularly serviced, checked and maintained.
Safety is of the upmost importance when rigging which is why all of our riggers have years of experience coupled with training to work at height, height rescue and the operation of various items of access equipment. We have our own harnesses, rescue equipment and rescue plans when working with rigging and access equipment.
