Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial

In February 2019, 360DE delivered the 8th Anniversary commemorations of the Christchurch Earthquake at Oi Manawa Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial. This day of remembrance included a private service for the families at Avonhead Cemetery along with the Civic Ceremony.    

Our team provided event management services and coordinated all supplier logistics for the events on behalf of the Quake Families Trust and Christchurch City Council.  This included site design and layout, obtaining quotes, contracting suppliers, managing the budget, liaison with traffic management, security and emergency services, developing pack-in and out run-sheets, overseeing supplier H&S and onsite management of all supplier activities.

The events were very positively received by the families, dignitaries and public and included poignant poems, the reading of the names of those who lost their lives and music provided by the New Zealand Army Band.
