Do you need an event managed?

We have the ability to deliver events in any area of Australia.

Organisations seeking to deliver sustainable and economically viable events can rest assured that when they contract BayView Group for event delivery that they are contracting professionals who are able to either deliver the event from conception to completion or to be the outsourced team which review and make recommendations that save your event money in areas that don't add value to the event experience and allow for better investment in areas which deliver a better event to the public.

Some of our events include aquatic licences, liquor licences, Council, Marine Parks Permits and Fireworks permits.

While BayView Group delivers events primarily in the Hunter region we also have the capacity to bring events to any location and have achieved successful economic impacts and community engagement in regions throughout greater NSW.

At the 2012 NSW Department of Trade Industry and Investment Community Economic Development Conference Marian Sampson of BayView Group was a guest presenter on the subject of events, positive economic impact and sustainability.
