Microhire enters New Zealand market
Audio visual and event staging business Microhire has signed its first venue in New Zealand.

Already partnered with a plethora of Marriott International properties in Australia, Microhire will become the in-house production supplier for the JW Marriott Auckland.

New Zealand’s first JW Marriott is gradually emerging through a refurbishment of the existing Stamford Plaza hotel.

Microhire has made significant investment in audio visual equipment for the JW Marriott Auckland’s event spaces, which total over 550m2. Investment includes over 50m2 of high definition LED, 4K wireless video conferencing systems, 24 LED moving head effect lights, advanced speakers, dynamic subwoofers and Dante digital audio networking.

The refurbishment of the event spaces as part of the transition to the JW Marriott brand is set to be complete by April.

“JW Marriott Auckland is proud to announce the opening of bookings in our first renovated function spaces, providing local and domestic guests a space to come together and connect, and the first function spaces in New Zealand to offer Microhire’s state-of-the-art audio visual technology,” said JW Marriott Auckland’s general manager, Girish Talreja.

Microhire’s portfolio of Australian venue partnerships already includes the likes of Luna Park in Sydney, CENTREPIECE in Melbourne, the W Hotels in Melbourne and Brisbane, the Sheraton Mirage properties on the Gold Coast and in Port Douglas and Australia’s first JW Marriott on the Gold Coast. However the company sees its move into New Zealand as a “significant milestone” in its international growth plans.

“Microhire is delighted to partner with the JW Marriot Auckland and further grow our Marriott relationship as we expand into the New Zealand market,” said Geoff Townend, Microhire’s regional general manager for New South Wales and New Zealand.

“We pride ourselves on enhancing the event experience by blending cutting-edge technology with exceptional ‘guest-first’ service.

“To compliment the luxury refurbishment of the property, Microhire is committed to providing top-quality technology enhancements across the events spaces, many of which are firsts for the Auckland market.

“Our team is excited to deliver incredible events in these beautiful spaces and play our part in the next chapter of the JW Marriot Auckland story.”
