Why akB?

Why choose akB?

Peace of mind and security. 

Your money, data, event, attendees and reputation are secure and protected at all times.

Our business practices are outlined below

Insurance:

akB has comprehensive insurance held with OFS Insurance Brokers:

Public Liability, Directors & Officers Liability, Statutory Liability, Employers Liability, Employment Disputes, Crime, Cyber Insurance, Internet Liability & Professional Indemnity.

Health & Safety

akB has developed a health & safety process which ensures all sub-contractors, venues etc are code compliant and no client is exposed to risk as a result of changes to the 2016 Health & Safety Act.

Banking:

akB has gone through a rigorous process with lawyers and accountants to ensure our clients are financially protected. We set up a Joint Venture Agreement between the client and akB. All our clients have their own separate Trust accounts with their own GST number and co-signees. This protects each client from any liability arising from other akB clients.

Cultural Protocol:

akB has developed strong working relationships with Iwi throughout Aotearoa. We strive to understand the specific cultural needs of all of our clients and work with them to ensure we are sensitive to the needs of all attendees.

Special Requirements:

akB is sympathetic to the needs of delegates whether they be dietary, disability or language. We work with venues and suppliers to ensure no delegate is disadvantaged when attending an akB managed event. We engage early with delegates who identify a special need so we can ensure that their needs are managed in a caring non-judgmental way.

Professional Service Providers

Our chartered accountants are JW Smeaton Ltd

Our Lawyers are Downie Stewart Lawyers

Sustainable Practices:

For over 15 years akB has worked with a sustainable approach to all of its events; we minimise our environmental footprint by limiting printing, recycling where possible and reusing and donating materials where applicable, and offsetting our events carbon footprint.

Systems

akB has invested in & uses Ivvy registration software, a user friendly, secure and reliable online system.

akB … because you can’t afford an amateur.
