Testimonials - Cairns, Melbourne and Shanghai

We regularly engage A List Events to manage our larger car launches. They understand our customers and this is demonstrated in their event concepts. We have been delighted with the outcomes produced from these events and appreciate all the assistance, planning and advice which we receive from Jen and her team. We are looking forward to working with them for events this year and in the future.

Alan Baxter
Principal, Audi Centre Cairns.


We launched our new office in January 2012. A List Events were engaged to manage our Official Opening and they produced several concepts, of which we chose a Carnivale theme. We were very pleased with the result which saw our clients and allied partners enjoy a fantastic evening from being greeted by Brazilian Showgirls and drummers, to enjoying delicious food and great drinks, whilst exploring our new building. Every detail was taken care of which left me and my team about to focus on our customers.

We have engaged the services of A List Events since 2008 to assist with our TNQ Awards. They have assisted with all elements of the Awards process, from the co-ordination of nominations, to managing sponsorships and the concept and delivery of the annual themed Gala Awards evening. Their professionalism and ability to include and work with our team members throughout the process is integral to the success of the Awards. We are very pleased with their standard of service and are looking forward to working with them in 2012

Just wanted to let you know how thrilled I was with both of yesterday's events, although both quite different, I thought they both did an excellent job of raising awareness about Shanghai East Clinic and what we did, as well as positioning us in a very appropriate and professional manner. I am very much looking forward to our upcoming events later in the month and of course to continuing to work with you in the future on further exciting projects

Through careful design of the program and events to making the best use of the fantastic location, our event was lifted above the level of other technical conferences that our delegates are used to attending, and they were motivated to participate fully and imaginatively as I was hoping. Feeback we received from delegates showed that they were highly impressed with the smooth and professional running of all sessions and events. I would thoroughly recommend the services of A List Events International to any group wishing to organise an outstanding conference.

Geoff James, Chairman, CSIRO ICT Symposium on Electrical Energy Evolution in China and Australia


FNQACC was delighted with the services of A List Events International. They were pivotal in the success of our recent NAEDF Conference and were outstanding in the following: Timely – Prompt to respond to any changes we made. The detailed planning schedule ran completely on time even though there were a great deal of pressured deadlines. Budget – No over-runs and timely response to significant and critical budget changes. Able to procure a lot of services for us under budget , making savings in the thousands. Management and Staff – Friendly, can-do, fun and totally professional. An impressive performance and even under pressure the team never faltered and never stopped smiling. It is rare to find a company that delivers top quality service on time, in budget and with a smile. Added to this, a real talent for innovative and creative ideas and an eye for the smallest detail. All this made our conference a great success.

Frederick Marchant, CEO FNQACC and organiser NAEDF 2008


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the professional way you ran the event. My job was very easy in the whole process because of the job that you did. You would rival any event organiser in Australia with the way you managed the whole the event.

I’d like to put on record my appreciation for the efforts for you and your staff relating to the inaugural Property Spectacular on Saturday Night. The enthusiasm and professionalism you showed in the planning and staging of the night was a major contributor to its success. You had many valuable ideas and your organisation was excellent.

Nick Trompf, General Manager, The Cairns Post. Cairns Post Property Spectacular, Cairns Esplanade (offsite ), 2008


Both the Friday night VIP launch and Sunday’s Family day were extremely successful events and created a great exposure for the estate. You have contributed substantially to what I’m sure you would agree was a fantastic launch of the Smithfield project in Cairns. Thanks again for all of your efforts.

On behalf of The Cairns Amateurs I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in 2007 …as always, both events went off with the minimum stress and maximum professionalism. From seeking sponsors to organising rehearsal and posting out tickets, you and your staff were a delight to deal with. I will be in touch regarding the 2008 functions which hopefully will be bigger and better than before.

Rosie Douglas, Cairns Amateur Committee

Thankyou all for the fantastic work on our 2007 UDIA Ball. The entire event looked amazing and the usage of the lifesaving props fantastic. Once again Red Ochre Grill did a superb job with the catering and your recommendations again paid off. As this event continues to grow, so does the profile of UDIA in North Queensland and the work of A List Events is integral to our success. Thankyou for all your efforts with sponsorship, we were delighted with the results. Looking forward to working with you next year.

Friday went really well. I have had really positive feedback from internally and also from client. Thanks to both you & Kinga for assisting me with a fantastic event.

Client Event 2007


In 2007 Cairns Central celebrated its 10th Anniversary. We chose to celebrate this major milestone in style with a series of fashion parades held in-centre and at numerous events within the Cairns community. The campaign required a professional, organised and efficient coordinator who could manage all aspects of the promotion and deliver parades to a very high standard. The event plan we were presented demonstrated a high level of understanding of all campaign objectives and the importance we place on our retailers involvement. To see that plan come into fruition and be such a success was very rewarding, it has certainly set a high standard for fashion parades in Cairns. We would like to sincerely thank Jennifer and the A List team for their hard work and commitment in helping us achieve our goals and celebrate our 10th Birthday in style!

“Our party was a truly an unforgettable event. From the early stages of planning right through to the event itself we felt we received remarkable service and value for money. Every detail was attended to with calm professionalism, resulting in the event exceeding our expectations and our guests having a fantastic time.

I just wanted to let you know how much I and my guests enjoyed our whole day on Thursday 6 September. The morning tea was superb and the Fashion Parade was fantastic. The lunch menu was superb and everything went really well for both my tables. Thank you once again for looking after us and congratulations on a very successful event.

Job well done! A big thankyou to you and your girls for helping us launch our new store. We were concerned about the logistics but your vision for the event was carried through to the last detail and the night was a great success...thanks again.

I wish to thank you and your team for your work with the UDIA Awards Evening. It was fantastic to be able to have our entire event arranged through one company and saved me and the committee so much time and energy. A special thankyou to Pedro for the work done on the multimedia presentation which was first class. Looking forward to working with you next year.

Thanks again for your assistance with the opening of the Events Centre. So many positive emails have been flooding my inbox for two days now! In no small part due to the excellent guest list. Well done.

Ed Brea, General Manager Shangri-la at the Marina, Cairns
Launch of Event Centre, 2006


I certainly appreciate the effort that you've put into everything with the change of our business name to William Buck. The event last Friday went extremely well and the article that ended up in The Cairns Post this week is exactly the message that we wanted to get across to the public generally.There's a big job ahead of us in promoting the name and in developing further and getting the marketplace acceptance that the old Hall Chadwick brand had, particularly in our local region. I am very appreciative of all the effort that you've put in and I'm sure that there's some basis that we can work together moving forward. Thanks again for everything that you've done.

Graham Caldwell, Director William Buck

I would like to pass on my congratulations to you on organising such a great day at Paradise Palms last week for Delfin. I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon. Whilst I deemed myself lucky to have been placed in such a great group, it seemed afterwards that many other people seemed to regard themselves equally as lucky. Thanks again.

The A List organised a wine tasting for 200 of our clients in an about-to-be-renovated, derelict office. It was a resounding success. They were creative, cost conscious, enthusiastic and hard working. They motivated all of our team. Will definitely use their services again.
