Game-changing Sound Sensitivity Stations have just arrived at Eden Park!

Eden Park is turning up the volume on inclusivity, and its music to the ears of P!NK fans.

In a groundbreaking move, Kennards Hire has introduced Sound Sensitivity Stations at the iconic New Zealand venue, creating an elevated experience for those sensitive to sound.

The stations, making their debut just in time for the highly-anticipated P!NK concerts, offer free self-serve earplugs to fans, marking a first-of-its-kind initiative in a major New Zealand venue.

Set to be a permanent fixture at Eden Park, the stations will be restocked ahead of all major
concerts and sporting events. To ensure prime accessibility, they will also be positioned at
different locations within the stadium grounds based on need.

The initiative was inspired by the personal experience of Kennards Hire staff member and mum, Kimberley White who shared, “We developed this concept and took it to Eden Park, which immediately jumped on board. With their help, we have been able to take a step towards ensuring individuals like my son... don't have to miss out on enjoying events due to noise sensitivity.”

This fantastic addition aims to allow individuals with sound sensitivity to revel in the magic of big game days and concerts without the risk of being overwhelmed by noise levels.

Kennards Hire New Zealand General Manager, Tom Kimber, added, “Kennards Hire is proud to support this initiative as part of our Icon Partnership with Eden Park. I have firsthand experience with my son who is hyper-reactive to sensory input, and I’m pleased that we are in a position to help draw more attention to the understanding of sensory inclusivity.”

How good!
