Big names in Australian event management merge

Two of the biggest names in event management, Miles Per Hour and Event Workforce Group have merged creating Spark Event Group.

The two companies were already working together on a number of the nation’s biggest events and venues including Australian Formula One Grand Prix, Melbourne and the Australian Open.

In a statement, Spark Event Group said the merger will not affect ongoing events.

“On the ground, event owners will notice very little difference day-to-day; they will work with the same people from Miles Per Hour and Event Workforce Group and as events and venues expand and evolve, Spark will meet the changing need.”

Shannan Gove, Co-Founder of Event Workforce Group, describes the union as the culmination of a five-year-long relationship.

“It makes great sense to combine the experience and know-how of two proven high performers in an industry that is ever changing and evolving,” said Mr Gove. “Spark now provides for every facet of event workforce and integrates proven, expert event management.”
