I’m Kim Hesse, a detail oriented, spreadsheeting loving human that craves the adrenaline of running live events.
If you’re visiting this page I’m guessing you’re like me (a little crazy about events) or, on the flip side, you couldn’t think of anything worse than running an event and you’re here for a little help... either way you’re in the right place. Welcome to our world of events.
Venues 2 Events started 15 years ago in my bedroom with little more than a few hundred dollars on loan from Nanna, a laptop on finance and a bunch of passion. I made a business card, registered a PO Box in South Yarra (because that sounded fancy) and as they say the rest is history.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel our beautiful country creating amazing events. From outdoor cinemas, winter festivals, roadshows, multi-day conferences, product launches to penthouse parties... my experience and that of our team makes us a force to be reckoned with.
I sincerely hope you enjoy your time online with us, our aim is to provide a hub of resources for the whole industry.
Event Planners (novice, starting out and the uber experienced) run your ‘Best Event Ever’.
Venues and Suppliers fill your function space and run events that have your clients coming back time after time.
I’ve had a blast delivering presentations for the following organisations at their National Conferences and training days:
We work in events - We love events - We understand events
I should also tell you that we’re a family business. How cool is that!? I feel so lucky to work with my super talented brother and the best Mum ever. Together, we are Team Venues 2 Events who fiercely care about each other and the clients we work with. We also have a hand selected army of talented, passionate and detail oriented event ninjas who join our team to execute large scale events and conferences. Buy us a coffee and we’ll tell you stories of the ‘behind the scenes’ lengths we have gone to, to ensure the success of our events.
