Creating events beyond their clients’ dreams is the goal of The Forum Group, winner of the prestigious Meetings & Events Association (MEA) 2010 National Award for Best Event Management Organisation.
Winning this award, a new category introduced by MEA this year, signifies national recognition for The Forum Group’s dedicated team of six, who have shown that a small business can make a big impact in the meetings and events industry.
Managing Director Leanne Constantino says that wining is a great honour for her tight-knit team.
“Winning this award means the leading body in our field has recognised the hard work we put into executing flawless events,” she said.
“We are passionate about what we do and are pleased and humbled to know our work stands out amongst our peers.”
The Forum Group is an event management company facilitating all areas of event management for corporate events, roadshows, conferences, meetings, exhibitions, product launches Australia-wide and internationally. The company started in 1996 and was taken over by Constantino in 2007.
The Forum Group’s high-profile clients include Gloria Jean’s Coffees and AVCAL, an Australian peak body for the Private Equity & Venture Capital Industry.
Often clients approach the Forum Group with only a shell of an idea for their events, and the team works on both the creative side and the project management side to help manifest their clients’ visions, whether for a six-city road show across Australia, a 20-person breakfast seminar or an overseas corporate incentive event for several hundred.
Superb customer service and attention to detail has ensured that repeat business from past clients has been a key ingredient in The Forum Group’s success.
Constantino says she believes winning this award affirms their clients’ faith in The Forum Group to help them create, plan and execute their events.
“Winning is great, but we certainly don’t intend to rest on our laurels,” she said.
“Our clients can expect to continue to receive the individualised service and thorough attention to detail we have always given.”
