AVCAL alpha Conference 2012
“AVCAL have worked with Forum Group Events for our annual conference in the Gold Coast for the past 6 years. They project manage all facets of the conference including venues and accommodation, leaving us to focus on the content delivery aspects. Each year Leanne and her team continue to impress us with their knowledge, professional approach, negotiation skills and ability to remain calm under pressure both during the project and on site. They are fantastic at ensuring each of our 500 delegates has a memorable and enriching experience. They are very pleasant and professional people to work with. We couldn’t be happier with their efforts and would wholeheartedly recommend them to any organisation seeking a PCO.”Deborah Young General Manager Australian Private Equity & Venture Capital Association
2012 Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Roadshow
“Forum Group Events managed our roadshows successfully and were a pleasure to work with. They were always ready with a contingency plan in case of any hiccups.
The regular teleconferences ensured the department was kept in the loop and their detailed meeting agendas prior to the teleconferences always kept everything on track.
Our staff were pleased with the support offered on-site by Forum Group’s event managers who were confident and approachable.
We were pleased with the outcomes of the roadshows and the support provided by Forum Group Events, and would welcome the opportunity to work with them again.

2012 Red Rock Oracle Leadership Forum
“Once again our appreciation and congratulations to Forum Group Events for assisting us with our major annual Red Rock Consulting event.
We have worked with Forum Group Events for over 7 years and throughout this time we have been thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, high level of service and flawless execution. Forum Group Events seamlessly managed all third parties for our event, including the Venue, AV, Exhibition and Themeing which allowed Red Rock to concentrate on Sponsorship and driving attendance.
We had extremely positive feedback and great results from the event. We know that we couldn’t have made it as smooth and seamless without FGE’s support.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Forum Group Events and we look forward to working with FGE on the next event.”

The team at Forum Group Events helped plan, organise and implement an efficient program for the breakfast using expertise, dedication and a collaborative approach with the Womensport NSW Board and Sub Committee.
The Sydney Schoolgirls’ Get Active Breakfast would not have been the overwhelming success it was without the efficient and effective organisation carried out by Forum Group Events.
Thanks for all your hard work and effort in staging this inspiring event for Sydney’s schoolgirls.”

2010 South African Tourism IMBIZO Roadshow
“……. thank you for the amazing events you created for our recent IMBIZO Roadshow.
The Sydney and Melbourne events themed around the “boma” were great – I think you were able to capture some of the “dining under the stars” experience that we all love. The dinners in Perth and Brisbane were lovely – the dressing was excellent and I know our guests really appreciated the effort made by SA Tourism.
So a big thanks to you and your staff – not an easy brief to “bring to life” but I want to thank you for a brilliant job!”

2009 CA Pacific Sales Kick-Off Event
“On behalf of CA, I wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks at the fantastic job Forum Group Events did in managing our event.
Your professionalism and responsiveness to our needs was greatly appreciated. We have been running this event for many years and this was the first time we utilised the services of an event management company to assist us – a decision we have not regretted!
I am still receiving positive feedback from staff that attended, such as:
“this was the best event in the nine years I have been attending Kick-Offs”; “superb event night”; “well organised and ran smoothly without all the usual fuss and hype”
I would have no hesitation in recommending CA or a colleague, to engage Forum Group Events for future events”

2008 ARAZPA Conference
“For the last 5 months I’ve been working with the team on the 2008 ARAZPA Conference which was held last week and I can’t sing their praises loud enough, they’re amazing girls and you are really lucky to have them representing your company. I know from working in HR how hard it is to find professional and dedicated staff and yours totally take the cake. Working with the Zoo on something like this is really challenging. We’ve got major budget restrictions in every area and rules and regulations that you would never come across in other organisation (somewhat bizarre procedures for getting thing done including sticking to strict environmental “green” guidelines etc) but your girls really embraced the challenge.
I can’t remember any time when I asked something of the girls and had to follow up or ask twice, no matter how small the task may be. I know you guys do this kind of thing for a living but really I just can’t find words to express how efficient and wonderful they are.”
