A professional industry association, our vision is to inspire excellence and our goal is to facilitate the collective sharing of information, enhancement of skills and development of best practice in the entertainment venues industry.
Our mission is to add value to the entertainment venues industry through:
EVANZ members include over 120 entertainment venues throughout New Zealand, as well as over 50 associate members - businesses that provide support to the entertainment venues industry.
EVANZ is governed by a Board of Directors comprising senior executives from a range of New Zealand venues, together with the General Manager. The Board as a whole meets four times a year and working sub-committees assist with the day to day running and governance of the association.
The EVANZ AGM is held in November each year, at the same time as the Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony.
