Event management company Arinex has further expanded its New Zealand footprint with the acquisition of business events agency Auaha.

This is the first acquisition Arinex has completed since joining forces with event management software Delegate Connect last year.

“This acquisition aligns with our dedication to driving innovation and delivering exceptional value to our clients,” said Nicole Walker, CEO of Arinex.

“By integrating the expertise, Māori cultural competency and insights of Auaha, Arinex aims to deliver an enhanced value proposition and unparalleled event management solutions to its clients across Australasia.”

Auaha will be rolled into the Arinex brand, which sits within The Arinex Group alongside Arinex Live, their full-service technical production arm.

“After 23 years of operation, we’re thrilled to join forces with Arinex and embark on this exciting new chapter of growth and opportunity,” said Sandra Julian, founder and director of Auaha.

“It was paramount to ensure that Auaha clients are in safe hands, with a fully competent PCO capable of effectively fulfilling our existing obligations and contractual commitments for our client events.

“Under the leadership of CEO Nicole Walker, the Auaha team will leverage the extensive experience and expertise of the broader Arinex team, enabling us to deliver exceptional value to our clients. This commitment also ensures we maintain our steadfast dedication to cultural integrity.”
