Professional conference organiser, team building and corporate incentives

Welcome to Paardekooper and Associates!  Since 1987, we have been honing our skills as conference organisers, team builders and event managers right across New Zealand.  We work right up and down the country running conferences, trade exhibitions, company incentive programmes, team building and adventure racing.   Clients, delegates, presenters, exhibitors and team members tell us that we run world class events, and we do this right here in New Zealand.  

Professional conference organiser and event management services

As your conference engine room, we provide an experienced team of people who underpin the smooth running and success of your event, conference, roadshow or congress.   From concept to delivery, we are customer focused, experienced, resourceful, really good at detail, welcoming and take initiative.  We become an extension of your team.

Event registration online services and event website design

Our suite of eConference online registration systems are secure and user friendly with your role changing from administering and processing registrations to maintaining a management overview.  Engage the power of web promotion with your own event website, we provide optimised website design and hosting services integrated with social networking!  Online abstract submission saves time and connects geographically spread reviewers.

Team Building increases motivation and alignment

Our team building programmes and company incentive conferences are high energy fun! Unique, interactive and participative, your event will be designed to bring your corporate objectives to life.  Back in 1987, we ran our first team programme (for New Zealand Post) and from this starting point have developed a depth of knowledge and skill in team building. Your company will benefit from our experience of delivering high impact innovative team events.

Mountain racing adventures for charity 

We believe that it is important to give something back to our community and in 1999 Luke and Kaye took action, running Butterfly Creek Nighttime Madness and the Mt Lowry Challenge as charity events.  From there it has snowballed and we are now recognised for running three of New Zealand's best mountain racing and adventure events and, more importantly, we have fun giving back to our community by donating the profits of these events to youth.

Your success is our success!
