SJ Venues is in my speed-dial! Steve’s comprehensive knowledge and commitment ensures I always have the perfect venue to suit my conference or event brief, and he saves me hours trawling the Internet, which is stressful and time consuming. An absolute must for any event organiser!
We have used Steve for many, many years now, assisting with our company conferences and events, and nothing is ever an issue for him (even my craziest requests). I have always appreciated everything he has done, with his professionalism and constant good nature. Highly recommended.
We have engaged Steve at SJ Venues and Events as the event manager for our biennial conferences held in the Barossa Valley in March 2015 and the Yarra Valley in March 2017. At a difficult time for our industry, Steve has helped us to deliver cost effective conferences that were recognised as a great networking opportunity for a select segment of our industry. Steve's attention to detail and readiness to go the extra yard is so greatly appreciated, that we will not hesitate to recommend and engage him again for our future conferences and events.

I have been dealing with Steve at SJ Venues for the past 9 years and he has assisted me with our company Christmas functions, several awards nights and multiple conferences. He has also helped me find the best venue and entertainment suppliers continuously for our annual events. Steve is an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing is ever too hard and if adjustments or briefs are changed, then this is always accommodated in a very professional manner. Without Steve’s assistance and his service and knowledge, I would never have found suitable venues and suppliers and he definitely makes things easier with the planning of our company events.
At short notice the brief for our new product launch was changed and quite specific in its requirements due to the size of our displays. Our team wasted a couple of days searching then decided to engage SJ Venues to help. Within just a few hours Steve had found and booked us a meeting and site visit with a venue which turned out to fit all of our needs, and the event was a total success. Steve’s organisation and communication throughout the experience was exceptional which is why I highly recommend SJ Venues ongoing - 5 stars.
SJ Venues provide us with a complete customer care package. No request is too small for Steve to look into. Recommendations are not only prompt, but briefs are easily understood with an emphasis on comparing like for like offerings. Steve and his team source the best venues and service for any occasion and we’ve come to rely on this excellent service for all our conferencing and events needs.
In short, our entire event was an overwhelming success. The choice of venue Steve suggested and booked for us was very well received – and the venue team on the night were great.
Thanks again for all of your advice and assistance – I wanted the night to be a fairly simple one to organise but at the same time an event that people would remember and I think, with your help, that we achieved that.
