“Ultimate are so well-established & highly regarded as a leader in our industry - by tapping into their additional resources & given the strength & breadth of their relationships around Australia & overseas, I now have the scope to add even further value for my clients. I have known Lisa Roberts, Director of Ultimate for many years, so it’s been a very smooth transition. It’s exciting to be working with a team of such amazing people. Supporting their clients in so much more than the standard venue-finding model, combined with such strong partnerships & communication with venues/suppliers alike, really sets them apart from the rest”.
Sam Dove – Founder, Venue Selector.

Ultimate Group’s exciting plans for 2014…

Listening to the needs of their clients & venue partners over the years, the Ultimate team are looking to broaden their range of services & embrace new opportunities within the MICE sector throughout 2014 & beyond...

Following the launch of TheVenueShop late last year, the opportunity to acquire Venue Selector was perfect timing, allowing Ultimate to embrace the wealth of Sam’s knowledge adding another much needed, experienced pair of hands to the team. With Sam's energy, drive & commitment matching the passion of the existing Ultimate consultants, there is no doubt she will be an integral support in driving various new projects moving forward.
