"Always a good reason - ninety nine in fact"

About Us

Do you find there always seem to be at least Ninety Nine Reasons to do, or not to do something? We thought so too. So over a good Pinot Noir we created Ninety Nine Reasons Event Management. Events are about storytelling and taking people on a journey. We believe their experience doesn't end when the door of the venue hits them on the butt as they leave, but continues to resonate, reminisce and relive over the following months.
It's important to us that we provide you with an honest, real and authentic event service. A service that is not over-engineered. Know that we have just as much skin in the game as you. We can say we're specialists, and offer comprehensive services but we would rather show you, as no two clients or events are alike.
Whether it's a small intimate gathering for a significant birthday or a gala dinner for 800 guests, consider it done. End to end - from first concept through to when the last glass is safely packed away and the lights are turned off!
