WHO WE ARE
Kia ora, we’re Raynor and Hayley, Twelve Conferences + Events.
Many people are asked to organise a conference or event on top of their “day” job or in a voluntary capacity. They often are lacking time, resources and knowledge to efficiently plan and deliver.
That’s where we come in. We’ve been organising conferences and events together over the past 15 years, and it’s what makes us tick.
We help associations, government agencies, corporate businesses and the academic sector throughout Aotearoa to achieve their conference and event vision.
We know time is precious. Let us take care of the details, so you can focus on your day to day activities.
Why Twelve? Our story…
As with many others in the events industry, COVID changed our paths. We decided to create something we are passionate about and gives us purpose, so we completed a course in small business and project management with the goal of starting our own company. It was during an assignment that a typo of the word twelve triggered a connection and Twelve was born.
Why Twelve...first of all we are both born on the twelfth of a month [not the same one!].
The number twelve carries spiritual, mythological and magical symbolism, generally representing perfection, entirety, or cosmic order in traditions since antiquity. Twelve is a symbolic number: It signifies completeness and completion, the integrality of a harmonious unit, the absolute whole, which we thought was pretty cool and aligns with what we do.
Twelve also represents the calendar months and a component of time, both of which are linked to project and event management. Our logo combines both of these elements, with the colours representing the different seasons of a calendar year.
