Feedback from 2015

My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed the event you put on for us for Oaks Day. The service was attentive, the marquee looked great and the food was wonderful. We also won money!

Once again, our annual Racing Day was a success, thanks in large part to you and the team. Thank you for organising another seamless day.

Hey guys, have received great feedback from all the sales guys who invited their clients to the races last week. Thanks for arranging things last minute!
Peta, Westfield
Just a quick note to say thank you again for such a wonderful day on Tuesday. I had several of my clients tell me that it was the best event they had attended. Looking forward to the 2016 event
