Fusion Events was found by Jess and Jono, after spending years in the Events world in the UK, Australia and New Zealand it was time to take the plunge and create Fusion Events to craft running, cycling and multi-sport events.

Fusion Events started in August 2017 and has grown from a pipe dream into a portfolio of events, clients and consultancy. With an amazing staff Fusion has been able to grow and become one of New Zealands top adventure and endurance sport providers.

For Jess and Jono the excitement and joy of seeing the staff shine and the participants conquer new goals is what events is all about.
