About Us

wordsVertWhat makes one company stand out from another? At 360 Degree Events we believe that it is our unique personable approach, our integrity and our commitment to exceeding expectations that makes us the preferred event management company for some of New Zealand’s largest organisations.

We have what it takes to deliver memorable and successful events, campaigns and projects on behalf of our clients.  From conception to completion, we provide sound advice and management expertise to ensure your project achieves your objectives and is delivered on time and within budget.

Managing Director, Karen Hamilton formed the company in January 2008.  Since then the company has gone from strength-to-strength and has grown from being a home-office style operation with just Karen on the staff to having a beautiful office in Merivale, Christchurch and employing a team of event and marketing professionals. In addition to the core team, we have a solid network of contract event staff and excellent relationships with a plethora of event industry suppliers.  

We love what we do and we believe that it shows in our work!
