Peter Jones AM – Specialist

Event Planning, Strategy and Production


Peter Jones AM has been creating special events ever since he could.

This year celebrates 30 years of Peter deciding to start his own “party” business – Peter Jones Special Events – and what a journey that has been. He is regarded as Australia’s leading event manager having overseen more than 1500 events whether a mass public event for 100,000 or a bespoke intimate function for 50 people

Peter has now brought his immense experience into the consulting world.

There is virtually nothing Peter hasn’t seen or experienced in the event space and he can help you avoid the pitfalls.

He can provide, as a starting point, the creative direction needed to give your event the WOW factor. Templates for running sheets, budgets, production schedules and risk assessment forms that can easily be adapted for your needs. Established contacts required to access the best venues, caterers, talent organisations, audio visual and staging companies. Most importantly he can save you time and money with the process.

Peter has also continually dedicated a great deal of time to representing and supporting the industry at many levels. His many years of outstanding voluntary service and contribution to events was recognised with his appointment as a Member of the Order of Australia.
