People of VenueNow: Eliza

Tell us a favourite event memory…

My favourite event memory would be from 2016 when I organised a festival in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. I was involved in organising everything - from the venue to the staging, marketing, advertising, design, artist line-up, festival details, ticketing and more! I got to meet and work with some of Australia’s top musicians (Ball Park Music, The Jungle Giants, Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale). Standing beside the stage with these bands performing and thousands of people dancing and singing was just such an incredible feeling. I cried with happiness!

What events are you planning next?

Currently I am working on many different events - from small AGMs, to team workshops, corporate Christmas parties, networking events and product launches.

What’s one thing that every great event or venue needs?

To be honest, the only thing that every great venue or event needs is amazing people! The People MAKE the event, whether that’s the guests or service (the floor staff, the bartender, the security upon entry). If there is a positive atmosphere, and people who are genuinely happy, and willing to help, every event will be a success!

What excites you about working with VenueNow?

I love that there are so many different venues around Australia with endless potential. It’s so exciting knowing that I can help a client find the perfect venue. Whether they want a small boardroom, a glamorous ballroom, an eclectic barn or a blank canvas venue - we have endless possibilities! I love that I can help clients be creative and have a memorable experience.

Finally, what’s your top event planning tip?

Ask questions! Asking questions is how I find out exactly what my clients need. It gives them the chance to think and put forward their ideas. It makes the client feel involved in the venue sourcing process. It should be a team effort. With my knowledge of venues and the client’s knowledge of their event, we‘re a match made in heaven!
