Over the years, I have come to understand that event spaces are really quite bland and sometimes, un-inspiring. With every event, you need to create welcoming, inviting environments to conduct business or to celebrate with colleagues and loved ones.
Below are some of my most trusted suppliers that I have worked with for many years, or ones that I worked with for that one off extraordinary event.
Harry the Hirer https://www.harrythehirer.com.au/ (National)
What I love most about Harry’s is their Showroom in Richmond (Vic). I can go in there and put together the look / atmosphere I am wanting. They have everything from furniture, linen, cutlery, crockery, cushions… you name it, they have it. Everything is current and on trend, and you can download their current look book – Insitu for inspiration.
Dann Event Hire https://www.danneventhire.com.au/ (East Coast)
Working with the team at Dann’s has been extraordinary over the years. I used to have a lot of road show’s that needed a consistent look and feel at every event and I booked the look I needed each year and transported it around the country. I had the same install & transport team, so they became an extension of my event team. A trusted long term partner.
Decorative Events & Exhibitions https://www.decorativeevents.com.au/ (NSW)
If I am doing an event in Sydney, I only call DE&E. Their team of stylists are second to none. I can workshop any design concept with them, and they only make it better. Furniture, linen, cutlery, crockery, set builds etc., nothing is too big or too small for the team. Their stylist is on site with me until the client walks into the room, doing all the last finishing touches.
SamiKata https://www.samikata.com.au/ (NSW/Byron Bay)
Running events in Bryon Bay is certainly one of the nicer environments to run events. SamiKata supplies a range of Tipi structures, either naked or giant enclosed tipi’s that can be joined together to create a relaxed but inviting space. They also offer a wonderful styling and design team, to bring the whole experience together. We worked them to create three very different experiences for our guests over a week, from beach dinners to lunches on expansive estate lawns, to styling within historic buildings… all with the greatest of ease and flexibility.
