Sporting Event Management Solutions

It's a little known fact that for more than a decade the j2 team has been delivering sporting event management solutions for very successful sports events in Queensland.

We've Made sports Event Management our business

Government, private sector and not-for-profit organisations have long used sport as a medium for achieving corporate and social responsibility goals. j2 has answered their call for a reliable sports event organiser, delivering mass participation sports projects in Queensland for more than 10 years.

We have worked with federal, state and local government to deliver a myriad of sporting events. We've served Gladstone Ports Corporation, MS Queensland and Stockland Caloundra Foreshore Fun Run for consecutive years, successfully driving their sports events to reach and exceed participation and financial targets. (Click on the experiences below to learn why 'j2' means 'sports events success'.)

We surround ourselves with the expertise required for each event. j2's experience in delivering large-scale, complex events in Queensland has enabled us to develop an extensive supplier network.

delivering record-breaking Queensland sports events

We have been responsible for delivering two of Queensland's largest participation sports events:

From 2010 - 2013, j2 has been event manager of the largest participation fun run in north Queensland – Gladstone Ports Corporation Botanic to Bridge, incorporating 8km and 3km courses and attracting over 4,000 participants.

From 2008 - 2013, j2 was event manager of the largest charity bike ride in Queensland – Enerflex MS Brissie to the Bay, incorporating four courses including a 100km ride. j2 has been instrumental in helping the MS Brissie to the Bay charity bike ride to become a successful annual event fundraiser on a huge scale. In 2013, j2 helped MS Queensland achieve one of the best cycling events in Brissie to the Bay's history when more than 5,700 riders took part (where 5,000 were expected), smashing the $1.2 million fundraising target (almost $1.25m was donated).

j2 orchestrated the first official swim event in the Brisbane River (outside of 2001 Goodwill Games triathlon) for the opening of Goodwill Bridge. Following the success of this river swim, another Brisbane River swimming event was organised by j2 for "Out of the Blue" as part of 2004 Senior's Week, in celebration of Blue Care's 50th Anniversary.

athletes and atmosphere

Sport events demand versatility and j2 has the capability in the two essential event delivery aspects: athletic and atmospheric. We design appropriate, enjoyable spectator atmosphere programs surrounding each of our sports events, creating a mood match that's right for your brand and event goals.

j2 also has international medal ceremony and venue atmosphere experience, with two key j2 staff being instrumental in producing these essential elements of the 2001 Goodwill Games Brisbane 14-sport event.
