    Testimonials

I am writing to thank you both so very much for the theming you provided for the Gosford City Australia Day celebrations in Kibble Park this year. With the move to a new venue and a number of other changes, it was essential that we made a positive impact on our event attendees and the way in which you dressed up Kibble Park provided that visual effect that we have not had at previous events. I had many encouraging comments about the theming and how great it looked so we would definitely like to organise this again for next year. I also wanted to thank you for just being so flexible, proactively helpful and generally a pleasure to work with. Your ability to just help out wherever needed on the day was invaluable and it certainly made my job a lot easier. It was fantastic to work with such professionals who are able to take initiative and help out where needed. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again soon.

On behalf of the Gosford Business Improvement District ( GBID ) Inc and committee, we wish to extend our congratulations on winning the Community Event category of the Gosford City Australia Day Community Awards. It is a real testament to your hard work and dedication in providing excellent events on the Central Coast.

Paul Brasch Gosford Business Improvement District Manager

 

Central Coast Radio (2GO & Sea FM) is a media partner with Brad and Bianca from Fixx Events and their organisational skills and professionalism is superb, always taking into account the needs of the local area and residents. One event that perfectly demonstrates this is the Avoca Beach Markets, which have so far been a huge success. There is no doubt the markets have increased tourism to the Avoca area, with local businesses including hotels, restaurants and cafes benefiting from the extra visitors. I know of people who travel from Sydney for the weekend that stay locally and attend the markets while they’re in town. I highly recommend Brad and Bianca from Fixx Events and support any event they may have in the future.

Thank you for your very professional approach and your advice and assistance beyond the call of duty. It was a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to working with you on a Taste of Avoca again. The event was a great success if the audience feedback is anything to go by.
