25 Years in Business

This year Wise Connections celebrates 25 years in business.

From beginnings as a sole-operator delivering incentive trips, to a current team of 12 people producing a range of different event types.

Wise Connections has thoughtfully grown and diversified in line with changing client priorities, advancements in technology, and new opportunities.

We’ll never rest on our laurels, but we’re happy to celebrate this exceptional milestone.


Loyal Clients, Trusted Suppliers, and Industry Friends

Milestone celebrations kicked off with an intimate party at Curious. Resonating with the bar’s name, design quirks, and Melbourne-ness (positive energy, tongue-in-cheek humour, fashion, art, and coffee!), Curious was a great fit. But the real thrill of the night was our guest list.

Reflecting the respect of the Australian events industry, our team celebrated with Wise Connections’ first client and first employee, current clients - now friends, amazing industry associates, and some of our favourite suppliers. Guests travelled from interstate and across town, embracing the dress code of sophisticated and fun. Here’s what some of them said:

"What a magnificent celebration. It is such a thrill to be here with you enjoying celebrating 25 years. I don't believe you're old enough to have been in business that long, but your successes are stacking up and stand high. Congratulations. You and your team are legends." - Warwick, Industry Friend
"What a cracking idea, Sue. This is fantastic. Congratulations on 25 years. Hard work's paid off. You've done really well. Great team. Really thankful that you entrust us with some of your events. Looking forward to working with you for another 25 years … maybe." - Tim, Trusted Supplier
"Hi Sue, Audrey here. Just thinking that many, many years ago, you and I were in Bangkok with a guy called Wombat, and you were trying to get me to climb into a boat through a window. I could not believe it. That was unbelievable. But I think we've progressed. On from there to Los Angeles. And now we're right down in Melbourne celebrating your 25th. Congratulations!" - Audrey, First Client
"Hey, Sue and the Wise Connections team, absolutely well done and fabulous on 25 years, especially getting through that bloody black hole of COVID. Really well done. Thanks for putting on a great party. We've loved working with you and hope to work with you some more." - Hannah, Trusted Supplier
"Congratulations on 25 years in business. What a huge milestone. We were reflecting earlier that's about when Chelsea was five years old and Sam was six years old. So that is wild! A huge milestone. Thank you for all that you do. I don't know what we'd do without you. You are an awesome lady, and it is an awesome business, and your team is testament to how you run the business. Thank you for all that you do. We look forward to working with you into the future and beyond." - Luke, Loyal Client
