What our customers have to say

"I have worked with Eventcepts for more than 10 years, I fully support & endorse their abilities. We deal with several Event Producers each year of which Connie is a standout. Eventcepts recent spectacular, Carnevale was a huge success largely due to Connie’s end-to-end planning/coordinating expertise.  There are always challenges managing suppliers - including technical, catering, theming & artists. Connie makes it all work with effortless grace & presence. I recommend Eventcepts for any future project."

“Definitely, in my top 10 most glamourous events to experience! Amore Carnevale Australia gives you a taste of an 800 year old celebration from Venice, Italy. The gala ball is complete with elaborate costumes, masks, decorations and entertainment that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this tradition in Melbourne Australia.”

Alice Su - Miss Australia International 2017

“The Australian Grand Prix Corporation worked together with La Dolce Italia (Eventcepts) events to deliver a Grand Prix family message. The event was hugely successful with the Australian Grand Prix giving out thousands of kids tickets and giveaways as well as delivering the Formula 1 event message of 'free entry for kids under 12'. La Dolce Italia was a great event to deliver our own brand and product messages to a highly captive audience.”
