HOT Events Australia


Conference and incentive planning requires dedication, strong project management focus, and always keeping one step-ahead of the game, a plan B to some. All of which were delivered by the HOT Events Directors, Karen Sainsbury and Natalie Brumniach.

On a recent conference famil trip to the Gold Coast, I expected nothing but sunshine and a full list of activities outdoors. When the weather changed, my admiration to the team and our third-party hosts for the next couple of days, showed such professionalism in ensuring that the trip was worth the rain.

Long-term industry professionals Karen and Natalie, have an impressive record of event experience under their belts including services such as:

  • Complimentary venue finding service
  • Conference and incentive program development
  • Guest speaker and entertainment management
  • Accommodation and venue management
  • Group travel management

The famil was tailored to explore the venues for social activities and options for conference partner programs. I had experienced first-hand the best of the Gold Costs dining, venue and accommodation facilities. We were joined with several other conference clients and our host’s for the next few days were from InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

Here is a quick glimpse of the agenda.

Day 1
Dinner at The Fireplace

Day 2
Golf buggy tour of InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.
High-Tea luncheon.
Blind Tasting of South American wines.
Pre-bevoir and canapés at The Verandah Bar.
An evening of Zombie Evilution (laser combat), met Kung-Fu Panda at the Land of Awesomeness and a brilliant dinner and show at Tiger Island in Dreamworld.

Day 3
Morning tea and a bird’s eye view of Brisbane city at SkyPoint Observation Deck.

Karen and Nat know the journey towards a successful exhibition, conference or event is seldom straight forward, often stressful and usually challenging. Being a leading specialist in conference organising  they are there to support you and your group from the initial design and development phase to the organisation  build-up and final on-site delivery and beyond.

Their trademark relaxed professionalism has made them the preferred choice for global corporate clients, local government, financial institutions, public sectors and member associations across Australia and New Zealand. Providing seamless event management for awards, roadshows and dinners.

There are no boundaries, too large nor too small – the fact is, creative thinking, organization skills and being flexible & supportive in a crisis is what can be achieved.


I’ve worked with Karen for at least 4 years and she’s absolutely amazing -the best of the best I say! I’ve also worked with all the girls from HOT Events and can’t rave enough about them. HOT Events staff are professional and accountable for whatever project you give them” Quote from a Medical Technology Company

“I’ve worked with Karen for the past 4-5 years and Nat indirectly during that time and my experience with them and HOT Events Australia has been professional with a high level of service, knowledge and with great attention to detail” Quote from a Beverage Association Company
