I have been fortunate in having Angela and the team at Vanilla Bean Events help arrange our Gala Ball for the last three years and they have been extremely professional, hard working and innovative. Angela has very high standards and is even contactable out of hours to enable the smooth running of the event which has been extremely successful in creating excellent publicity and raising funds. They believe wholeheartedly in helping running charity events and this shows in the great dedication they exhibit. Vanilla Bean Events helps with all aspects of organization, including invitations, prizes, tables, entertainment and endeavour to sort out any problems which inevitably arise during and around any event. They are comfortable in dealing with all sorts of people and organisations and I have consistently received excellent feedback from attendees.

This was an important event for Australian Diabetes Council (ADC) as we celebrated our 75th Anniversary and World Diabetes Day at the Opera House. Vanilla Bean Events did an amazing job and the night went as planned. Guest and staff feedback has been very positive and many rated it as the best event ADC have had in recent years. Vanilla Bean were a delight to work with - very professional, interested in our organisation, energetic and always committed to our objectives for the event. Their expertise is amazing! They managed the event from concept to post-event review and worked closely and very well with all the stakeholders.

“I want to express my deep appreciation to Vanilla Bean Events for the extraordinary role you played in event managing our four major events featuring Jerry Lewis. You and your team took on all responsibilities associated with these events with a very short lead time and delivered a superb series of events we were very proud of. Response by Jerry Lewis, his team and the hundreds who enjoyed a great evening has been overwhelmingly positive in regard to all aspects including the sensational room you created, organising invitations, MC’s and entertainers, the programming, activities and all the behind the scenes activity which guarantees a great event. I congratulate you and your team on a fantastic job and look forward to working with you in the future”.

Vanilla Bean were fantastic to work with! The event ran so smoothly without a single glitch! The girls communicated regularly leading up to the event and had everything ready exactly when they said they would. Their extensive event experience meant they were able to make some really valuable suggestions for entertainment, prizes, running order etc for the event. On the night they dealt with guests and VIPs, venue, AV and decorative staff so well and many people commented on their professionalism and friendliness. We are already using for our next event and definitely recommend them.

I have been working with Vanilla Bean Events for the past five years. Angela and the team have worked on a number of my charity fundraising events, delivering brilliant results. Not only are the exceptionally professional in everything they do, they have extensive experience in delivery charity events. They are really like an extension to my team, full immersing themselves in my business so they know exactly what our needs are and what they need to deliver. The account service is professional and consistent. They have great creativity, excellent attention to detail and are across trends in the industry so they can deliver a unique event experience every time. I would recommend them to anyone - both charity and corporate - looking for a personalised event experience.

“What an amazing job Vanilla Bean events did creating our 'Rooftop Rodeo'. From theming to the very popular sweets bar, the attention to detail and 'can do attitude' made it an absolute pleasure to work with Ange and the team and to see the stunning creation unfold was truly inspirational. The night was a great success and the Vanilla Bean team should be very proud of this truly unique creation! Thank you”.

Feedback from both internal stakeholders and attendees confirms the excellent execution of numerous events, each with different elements. From site selection through to the smallest details the Vanilla Bean team gives me great confidence and support all the way”.
