j2 ideas & events


In 1999, Brisbane event manager Joanna Jordan established Joanna Jordan Special Events (later evolving into j2 ideas & events in 2005).

Armed with one client on the books, a home computer, cordless phone and a sleeping baby nearby, Joanna has grown her event management company into one of the most creative, resourceful, versatile and reliable events management solution providers in the Queensland events industry.

Over the years, j2 ideas & events has been well known for adding the 'sparkle' to gala dinners and triumphantly directing some of Queensland's greatest (and most challenging) celebrations. As one of the most reliable and versatile event management companies Brisbane can offer, there are now 7 different streams that best describe the events that j2 works on:

1. conferences and incentives – professional conference organising (PCO) services, adding the 'sparkle' and atmosphere to a conference event program

2. sport events – sporting event management solutions for cycling rides, fun runs, river swims

3. not-for-profit events – events strategy for fundraising or other not-for-profit sector objectives

4. corporate events management – gala dinners, cocktail functions, golf days, team experiences

5. community events, activation and engagement – in the land and property development sector

6. major infrastructure events – bridge walks, official building openings, construction stage launches, public open days; no other Brisbane event management company has the same level of experience in this area

7. events of significance – these are major events like public celebrations that have City, State or nation-wide importance

j2's event management skill and reputation has been was formally acknowledged with the company winning multiple event industry awards for creative direction and seamless event management.

In recent times, j2 has not only been independently acclaimed for events expertise but for founder Joanna Jordan's vision and business acumen. j2 became a Telstra Business Awards Winner in 2007 when named Queensland Micro Business of the Year (five or fewer employees).
