I also received a wad of congratulations and thank you emails the next day. Overall I wanted to create something memorable and you nailed it."

Business Development Officer, NSW Parliamentary Catering03 Dec 2015

"A LIST Guide exceeded our expectations with their professionalism and high standards of customer service. Their connections were very helpful in assisting NSW Parliament House to lock-in attendees for our showcase events, exposing the business to valuable new customers and converted business. We will certainly keep them in mind for future eDM campaigns."

Event Cinemas 17 Oct 2014

"As an integral part of AHL, Event Cinemas is very focused on results driven marketing and achieving a good return on investment. A LIST Guide continues to provide great returns, in particular the A LIST Guide Showcase Event which delivered a fantastic result. Event Cinemas was extremely pleased with this initiative as it provided the perfect platform to showcase the large portfolio of products Event Cinemas has to offer. The Showcase provided the opportunity to engage directly with qualified event buyers and as a direct result a number of new business events were secured. Event Cinemas will be certainly rebooking an A LIST Guide Showcase Event for 2015."

SMA 22 Aug 2014

"SMA now in its 13th Year of business is always looking for better ways to raise the profile of our brand and product, keep up with market trends and achieve more exposure for our product. We have found the A LIST Guide and in particular the A LIST Guide Event Showcase a brilliant way of targeting a broader client database and these company's decision makers; and with sensational results! Ben Curtis and the team at A LIST Guide are passionate dedicated professionals, and with their guidance and expertise we were able to set a benchmark in how entertainment specific industry showcases are staged and produced in Australia. Partnering with several other well established brands, we have had amazing R.O.I directly related to our A LIST Guide Event Showcase and will be looking at staging something very similar in the future."

Event Director, McCorkell & Associates 25 May 2012

"I rely on A LIST Guide for a quick reference to new and exciting venues, theming and suppliers that can assist to make our events different from the norm."

Ernst & Young 24 May 2012

"In my busy roll as an Executive Assistant, I don't always have the luxury of time on my side for researching venues and suppliers when I'm asked to organise an event. Thankfully the A LIST Guide website takes all the "leg-work" out of organising an event. I've been using this website for the past 4-5 years and have found it to be an invaluable tool when it comes to looking for activities for team-building events, venues for client functions or internal off-site staff celebrations. The website is easy to navigate around, lists all the venue information you need and has direct links to supplier's websites and contact details. I can highly recommend A LIST Guide to anyone involved in organising events and functions."

"Whilst the internet is a good resource the A LIST Guide is a really useful tool in the very early stages of planning an event. It provides all the key information I need to be able to create a short list of venues and suppliers that meet our criteria or brief. It really saves a lot of time. Rather than trying to find all the relevant information on various supplier websites, it's all summarised in A LIST Guide."
