Outsource Your Event Planning And Free Your Team Up To Do What You Do Best
Defining Events specializes in planning and executing small to large corporate and special events for clients in the not-for-profit sector, associations, and the corporate environment. As event professionals, we will manage all areas of your event or we can tailor a plug-in support solution that fits within your budget.
Your Event Your Way
When Defining Events design and manage your event, we ensure we take the time to understand your vision. You will be consulted and kept informed every step of the way to ensure your desired outcome is not only met, but surpassed. Most importantly, by outsourcing your event, we remove the stress it places on your organization to ensure your core business is attended to without interruption.
What Others Are Saying About Us
The Barefoot Investor
Thanks for you all that you did yesterday. You are quite sincerely the best event organiser I've ever worked with. Remember that -- and take time to smell the flowers!
Many thanks and look forward to chatting with you next year. SP”
“My sincerest thanks to Jan Perkins for inviting us all to be part of this session, and my heartiest congratulations to Mel Keenan from Defining Events for the seamless management of the whole event. It was great to see the support for FCAQ in sponsorship for the conference.”
Energy and Water Ombudsman (Victoria)
"We have dealt with Defining Events for a number of years. Our experience has been that Mel is extremely well organised, easy to deal with and very personable. She takes the task on with vigour and her wealth of experience shines through to deliver a great result."
Financial Counselling Australia
“Melanie at Defining Events has managed our annual conference for so many years I can’t remember! We simply couldn’t do it without her. She is organised, professional and always looking for ways to improve what we do. With over 300 people attending the conference as well as numerous side events, it is no small feat to have everything go smoothly.”
EO Financial and Consumer Rights Council
“Defining Events has managed our state conference for the last five years. This 3-day event is attended by 250 - 300 people, includes a Gala Awards Dinner, multiple break-out sessions and exhibitor hall. We hold the event annually and in a different regional Victorian location. Defining Events runs a tight ship, is professional, knows the event management business, and has high-level communication skills.”
Melanie has organised three SAFCA annual state conferences for us, and will do so again in 2021. She has also organised other conferences in our sector that I have attended. These events are always run seamlessly and delivered to a high level of professionalism.
We find Melanie to be highly professional, strategic in her planning, attentive to detail and a lot of fun to work with!
I wholeheartedly recommend Melanie to any organisation large or small who needs an event organiser. Not only will your event be well run, but Melanie will ensure it will be a lot less stressful for you!
