What our clients say
Daniel Flynn | Thankyou
“We worked with Kim from The Main Event on the biggest event we’ve ever held as an organisation and we were blown away by her professionalism, skills and knowledge in the event management space. Kim’s ability to facilitate a collaborative process between a range of different stakeholders meant that everyone felt heard and valued, and her skill in covering off every single detail resulted in a world-class event that really reflected the Thankyou brand exceptionally.”
Daniel Flynn, Managing Director & Co-Founder at Thankyou www.thankyou.co
Chris Potaris | Committee for Wyndham
“Kim has played an integral role in the restructuring and redevelopment of the entire Events Management, planning and delivery phases involved with rebuilding our organisation from the ground up. This has gone far beyond mere events coordination, in fact, Kim’s involvement has included collaborative strategy development and project delivery.
I would highly recommend Kim to any organisation that values detailed, professional Events Management services, in a timely, documented manner. The fact that Kim is also a great person is a value add!”
Dean Brostek | Tennis Australia
“The Main Event was contracted to assist in the management and delivery of the inaugural Australian Open International Trophy Tour. The men’s and women’s Tennis trophies travelled to 3 cities in China where major public activations, VIP dinners and tennis clinics were staged.
The Main Event played a critical role in the successful delivery of the tour, the attention to detail and planning were impeccable. From the initial planning phase, to liaising with key stakeholders, government relations and budget management, all tasks were completed to perfection with care, dedication and good nature.
The commitment and integration into the team was seamless, and in terms of running events from end-to-end, I could not recommend The Main Event more highly.”
Geoff Lawyer | Melbourne Business Awards - Complete Colour
“I engaged the services of Kim from The Main Event in 2011 in my capacity as Chairman of the Melbourne Business Awards (MBA). The MBA had sadly parted ways with its previous long term event management company and had just experienced an interim option when Kim and I connected. Kim is a consummate professional who is passionate about her work, extremely knowledgeable, highly organised, innovative and challenges the norm.
Kim has a high level of diplomacy in managing/working with a complex mix of stakeholders, this is done all with style, grace and warmth. Kim and her team have become more than an Event Management Company, they are now an integral part of the MBA, which is a testament to The Main Events ongoing success”
Simon Mossman | Mossman Media
“What Kim delivers for her clients with respect to event conception, planning, organising and managing is nothing short of amazing. Every event organised by Kim and her team at The Main Event is incredibly well run, to military precision and timing and offers such great value to attendees and stakeholders as well as her clients.
If you need any event organised – no matter how large or small – for your company or clients, I highly recommend you contact The Main Event.”
Kamahl Barhoush | Executive Success Institute/Barefoot Business
“The Main Event was engaged by the Executive Success Institute to aid the implementation of our training programs including marketing, operational procedure writing, implementation and to help identify areas for future growth.
My experience with The Main Event was all of the above plus a wealth of knowledge and input into the business beyond what even I had imagined. Above and beyond technical skills Kim and The Main Event team manage to not only get the job done, but to do so leaving every person dealt with along the way feeling better for having them on board.
The Main Event comes with my unconditional recommendation and I welcome any queries personally.”
Jeanne Marshall | AITD National President
“Thank you so much for the excellent effort you put into making our AITD/ARTDO International conference in Melbourne in April 2013 such a success.
Your high level of professionalism was a great asset from the initial meeting with you at inception of the conference to the ultimate successful conclusion. Your ability to ensure everything went so smoothly given the wide and diverse range of delegates from Australia, Middle East, Asian countries and America and England was so appreciated.
Kim, you have an extraordinary gift in anticipating things that need attention before they happen, an ability to act and be professional with a happy positive attitude at all times and skills in developing a team from scratch who went into action from day one is an attribute that I am sure will lead you into being one of the best event managers around. Your dedication and motivation showed by the endless hours you put in for all events that were held over and above the conference hours. Our conference certainly was enhanced by having you along for each step of the process.
Thank you again on behalf of myself and the AITD National board. Please thank your awesome team from us as well, they worked so hard and appeared to enjoy the experience which must be attributed to your leadership of the ‘pop up’ team.”
