Group Events Manager
After spending my first 18 years on a tropical island I thought it was time for a change. Strange, I know. I've always loved Melbourne from afar so I flew here to study hospitality management at William Angliss TAFE, as hospitality is my passion. I landed my first job in Australia at Etihad Stadium and Melbourne Olympic Park with Delaware North Australia, and have since packed together 14 fruitful years in events and conferences, in both front-of-house and back-of-house capacity. In this role at Vue Events, located high up on the 55th floor of Melbourne's iconic Rialto building, our service is integral to our clients' overall experience and we believe that the higher you are, the higher the service will be.
Events Sales Manager
I have worked in the hospitality industry since I was young, and it has been a great way to travel the world and see Australia. After working in 5-star venues across the Whitsundays, I realised my love for the industry and events in particular. I soon moved to Brisbane to study Event Management while simultaneously managing a boutique event space within a cheese and wine bar. After completing my studies, I moved back to my hometown, Melbourne, with the ambition to work with the best in the industry, this brought me to Vue Events. I began in our operations team, where I thrived under the pressures of executing events to an incredibly high standard. After two years and lots of growth, I had the opportunity to move into our sales and coordination team, where I have absolutely loved being the first point of contact and bringing our client’s visions to life.
Senior Events Planner
I completed my studies in Tourism / Event Management and Hospitality Management and landed an agency-based role specializing in end-to-end event management. I have worked with global and local brands to create briefs, design the concepts, and take it from planning to execution. With a demonstrated history of working in the events services industry I can confidently organize a vast range of events including conferences, galas, product launches and activations. I had a desire to work on more personalized individual events which led me to Vue Events. I am ecstatic to be part of the Vue Events team where I can build long lasting working relationships with clients and deliver premium and unique events in a stunning setting.
Events Operations Manager
After several eye opening work experiences in France, Spain and Tunisia, I realised my true passion for the food and hospitality industry. I began studying hospitality management in Paris and ended up in Los Angeles, where I discovered the world of events in one of the highest cultural institutions of California. That’s when I knew that I wanted to focus my career on events. I love the idea of contributing to the success of someone’s special day; it is a passion that drives my ambition. After managing the private dining department of The Lanesborough Hotel in London, I decided to move to Melbourne to pursue my dream and continue to discover what this amazing industry has to offer. I am very proud to be part of the Vue Events team and to be able to provide our guests the most incredible dining experiences that this beautiful city has to offer.
Sales and Events Coordinator
After completing my studies in Social Science Psychology, I decided to change career paths and pursue my passion for Marketing and Events. I’ve always had a creative desire and keen eye for detail, so this decision was one that came naturally. Following this direction, I landed an agency-based role and my love for the industry was truly established. It was here that I immersed myself in the experience of premium events and developed the urge to develop my skills on a world-class level, leading me to Vue Events. Since working for the group, I have had the opportunity to showcase my abilities and provide our guests with a second to none experience.
I come from Guadalajara, a city in Mexico most famous for Tequila and Mariachi bands. In 2009 I completed my Bachelor in International Hospitality Business Administration and I commenced my career in the Hotel Industry based on high-end hotels. In 2012 I moved to Playa del Carmen, to work for one of the most renowned luxury hotel chains, where I learnt from the industry's grassroots, all the way up until I was part of the management team. Being part of an international luxurious company gave me the opportunity to understand customers' needs and market tendencies. That was when I decided to leave my country behind and become a Melbournian to pursue my dream and passion for the industry. I packed my bags and moved halfway across the globe to commence a course in Event Management at William Angliss Institute to assist me in transferring my skills from the hotel industry to the events industry. In 2016, I scored my dream job at Vue Group and since then I have been able to broaden my event management skills and grow with the business. Fast forward three years and I am now responsible for assisting the Event Manager, with the logistics, planning and execution of events across our venues and interstate.
