Everything provided by HVE was absolutely perfect. Sarah was wonderful to work with and I very much appreciated the assistance given the tight turnaround we had.

I honestly couldn’t have dreamt of anything better than what was supplied to us. The feedback received about the decorations and lighting was extremely positive and our COO was really impressed. The room looked so inviting.

Thank you all so much, your efforts are really very appreciated.

Louise, Gus and Sarah. Guys. What would we have done without you?! Thank you for sharing your brilliant ideas with our team, leveraging your relationships in the Hunter Valley, your seamless execution and your amazing hospitality. We are wondering if you would consider changing your name so you can come and help us out at our 2018 location??!

Louise and Sarah were a joy to work with, absolute professionals, and the event theming was amazing. The delegates of the SCA Conference loved the evening, and it wouldn’t have been a hot without the amazing work from HVE.

commented on 11-jan-2017

Well what a team you are. I was so impressed with the organisation and all the events and wineries we visited. Everyone without exception was so welcoming and friendly and in addition so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. The students seemed to be really enjoying themselves and there were some really positive comments on the coach on our journey home.

As I have mentioned before you and your team make my job this end so incredibly easy for which I am very grateful.

The professional team of Hunter Valley events is a company I would recommend to anyone. Both events were run professionally and seamlessly. The entire team had a great time at the events and are still talking about the fun they had, both activities allowed all team members to take part as much or as little as they wanted to.

Will keep you in mind for when we are next in the regions.

presence of it – hunter valley world cup team building

commented on 23-feb-2016

The whole engagement with HVE was fabulous. We had a session agenda and contract locked down within 2 days of contacting HVE which made our job easy.

The agenda and activities successfully incorporated our company messaging of collaboration and excellence in execution, and provided opportunity for our 150 team members to work in teams that crossed geographies. Without exception, we have had absolutely wonderful feedback from our team members who all appreciated the chance to form and strengthen relationships that we hope will continue throughout their career.

The customised agenda proved no problem for HVE. The activities were fun, and allowed everyone to be involved. And the management of the program to a strict timetable was successful and greatly appreciated by our leadership team.

We would have no hesitation in using your organisation again in the future. Thank you again for your expert running of our event. Absolutely fabulous outcome for us.

The whole experience from initial contact, booking the event, itinerary collaboration to meeting our client’s needs has been outstanding. Elyce and Louise have been exceptionally customer focused, friendly and exceeded all expectations in their communication, flexibility and organisational abilities. The wineries and educational value they provided combined with some ‘fun; activities was excellent. Our clients in their feedback all commented they had an amazing day.

I can honestly say it was wonderful. Elyce was fabulous- she left no stone unturned. Nothing was too much trouble. Professional, helpful and thoughtful- always one step ahead. I could not believe how good the service was overall. Thank you for making our trip memorable for us. I don’t want to deal with anyone else when it comes to our conference and team building requirements.

The staff were professional and very friendly and ensured the activities were run to schedule. Special thank you to Elyce, Sarah and Jayson (Photographer) who assisted on the day and contributed to what turned out to be a fantastic day. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

Would happily work and recommend the team.

commented on 29-jul-2015

Elyce- you and your team were amazing! Everyone has agreed that Kick Off FY16 was by far the best yet and i believe you played a massive part in making that event so great.  Every night event that you executed was perfect and lots of fun, and your team building activity was so unique. Thank you so much- we will definitely be looking to work again with HVE in the future.

This event went off exactly as communicated. The teams really enjoyed the chance to interact and have some fun. Safety was clearly paramount and briefings helped all involved to develop new skills. I just wish we had more time.

Our thanks to Gus and Jean Marc, the kitchen will never be the same.

The only complaint was my team lost (not by much though)!

Hunter Valley Events provided an outstanding ‘signature’ event for my American client’s incentive programme in Australia. Gus and Louise were extremely accommodating in the lead up to the event, and the final delivery was exceptional in every way. Big, huge thank you.



commented on 11-jul-2013

All I’ve heard all morning was how much fun they had at this event. They said the food was incredible, and the activity was enjoyable, 100% positive feedback from all the team. Thank you so much for an amazing Hands on Gnocchi activity.

commented on 11-jul-2013

Louise and Kate, thank you so much for a wonderful event! The team thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, the team building and mix of competitive spirit was what we were aiming for and it was certainly achieved. Gus the facilitator was fantastic, a very bubbly and easy going personality and it was a pleasure to have him host us. The winery was lovely too and the food was delicious! Our brief for this offsite was thoroughly met and we had a brilliant time! Thank you for accommodating our needs and for making our offsite one of the best CHAMP has ever experienced. I will be sure to recommend your services and hope to one day work with you again on another fun filled team building event.


liberty international

commented on 11-jul-2013

The event was perfect for our team. It allowed us to work as small teams while still being able to stay together as whole group (that was the aim of the team building after feedback from last year). Each of the activities was seamlessly set out and allowed for different people to display their skill sets and ideas within the groups.

Everyone within the group enjoyed the games and challenges and to see a ‘final product’ was a great display of what working as a team can achieve.

Thank you for preparing, coordinating and facilitating a great event!



commented on 11-jul-2013

Great service, considering we only came to you shortly before our conference. Rebecca was most helpful in coming up with a tailored event for our group. We all had a terrific time and the event went like clockwork. The activities we participated in were just the right amount of exertion level, considering the group’s celebrations the night before! A common comment from the group was that it was a great hangover cure!! But seriously, everyone agreed it was a lot of fun and the staff on hand on the day were great.

Thanks again for your help, and we will have no hesitation in using you again and/or recommending you to others.



commented on 15-feb-2013

I can’t thank you enough for helping me organise our event.  Everyone had an absolute ball. You listened carefully to my brief & your initial proposal was perfect in incorporating everything I wanted. I would highly recommend (& have!) to other companies. Hope you get a pay rise this year! J
