Technical services for live performance venues and events

Kia ora koutou,

VenueTech Ltd. was formed in 2019 by JR Richardson, to provide technical services to live performance venues and events in Whakatū Nelson, Aotearoa.

VenueTech Ltd specialises in venue technical management and audio engineering for concerts, festivals, and musical theatre.

While some projects require a personal touch, others, however, might call for more hands on deck. In these instances, we have a fantastic network of highly-skilled lighting technicians, audio engineers, and equipment suppliers who we regularly work with.

We also believe in knowledge-sharing, and so create and run a number of educational workshops on various technical production topics.

Please explore our site to find out about us and what we do, and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
