j2 ideas & events

Our Clients

j2 ideas & events is an event management company that builds and nurtures long-term partnerships.

Our ability to exceed our client's objective targets and stakeholder expectations has earned j2 long-term associations with companies such as Australia Post, Stockland, Brisbane City Council, MS Queensland, Gladstone Ports Corporation and Toowoomba Regional Council.

With an objective achievement record like j2's, we earn the trust of our clients to provide a solution to their event management and creative direction needs.

In re-bidding for successive contracts, especially on Queensland icons such as Riverfire and Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, j2 has been engaged on the basis of merit, not simply due to existing relationships.
