Events with Passion!
In early June 2011, Venues2Events put on an entertaining and informative breakfast conference at the elegant and newly renovated The Sebel Albert Park Melbourne.
SRS Productions recruited Venues2Events as senior on-site event managers on behalf of the 2011 Melbourne Winter Festival, which will be held at The Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition Building Forecourt August 18 – September 4.
Topics of discussion included sponsorships & partnerships, professional fees and industry standard service rates, commissions & ethics, and creative & proactive ways of providing excellent service to clients. Kim Hesse and Maree Trevenen (the female-powerhouse behind this company) delivered entertaining speeches which engaged the audience as well as providing all of those who attended with vital information. These two women of business have sincere dedication and passion for the events industry, and watching them present on stage, it shows.
The grand ballroom was packed out with eagerly awaiting guests (it was a very cold and wet Melbourne winter morning- one of those mornings where you deserve a pat on the back for crawling out of bed that extra early!) and an eloquently presented full buffet breakfast served in a cute bento box awaited us at the early 7:30am start time. There was even ‘real coffee’ being served by The Sebel’s baristas. This was what everyone there certainly looked forward to and needed!
Staging Connections did a sensation job with the audio-visual, and guests had the opportunity to take part in Q & A, and very importantly, exchange business cards. Hopefully everyone there had the chance to network among themselves, as I certainly found the time to get chatting with the lovely bunch at my table.Share
