The great outdoors – Coast Group gears up for a summer of success

Coast Group is looking towards a summer of success, both for the company and the industry as a whole. 

The optimism follows a high level of achievement which was recently recognised when Coast Group won two Hire Industry Association New Zealand Awards – one for People and Culture and the other for Hire Company of the Year. 

“For everyone in the business this was acknowledgement of the tireless efforts we have put in this year,” says national manager Dane Botherway. 

“However it is also a testament to the amazing business and major event industry colleagues we work with from Bay of Islands to Invercargill – the people who have a strong culture and vision to make New Zealand events stand out on the world stage.” 

Over recent months, Coast group has been involved in high profile events ranging from the FIFA Women’s World Cup around the country to Fieldays in Hamilton, TRENZ in Christchurch, MEETINGS in Wellington and many more. 

“We have seen a real resurgence of business events, both in the corporate and association space through the traditional conference and meeting season,” says Botherway. “Now that summer is approaching, the nature of events will change to a certain degree with the season, but the same dedication and commitment to the sector remains. 

“Whether our customers are organising a music festival, a corporate team building exercise or retreat, a wedding or any other outdoor event, Coast Group has the experience, equipment and passion to ensure it is successful.” 

The group’s range of services straddles the whole spectrum of the events sector and some of these take on even more importance in the summer months. “As summer festivals, large concerts and other outdoor occasions kick in for the season, power and lighting solutions, as well as temporary structures like marquees take on added importance for organisers. 

“Reliable power sources are an absolute necessity for the success of an outdoor event and GRS generators are designed to keep an event running smoothly regardless of the location. “Another one of our stand out offerings is a selection of high-quality marquees. 

New Zealand’s unpredictable weather can be a challenge for event planners, but these versatile structures offer reliable shelter from the elements and add an elegant touch to any outdoor event – from intimate garden parties to grand weddings. 

“We also specialise in lighting solutions that can transform outdoor spaces into enchanting landscapes. “So whether it’s event planning and coordination, custom signage, audio-visual equipment or any other aspect of event delivery, Coast Group is the industry’s one-stop-shop for summer events.”
