What happens when three long term neighbours with a varied skill set and a love of spending time around the barbeque with a brew get talking? They decide to purchase an event business!
In a quiet Toowoomba street reside an event management company director, a market stall owner and a marketing consultant. Over a quiet beverage one Wednesday afternoon, conversation came around to the fact that Amie Johnson, founder of the Brews & Barbie Bash, was selling the rights to the event.
“It was a great event”, said Dave from Deep Blue Events. “Between us and our businesses I think we could make it even better.”
The discussion got more involved, and before they knew it, Dave Schenk, Sam Douglas from Old Style Russian Fudge & Coconut Ice and Shana Rogers from Consult & Pepper Marketing were the proud owners of The Original Mix Co and the Brews & Barbie Bash!
The incredible amount of work Amie Johnson put into building the Brews & Barbie Bash event from scratch over two successful years means the event has a name for awesome food, excellent brews and great entertainment, and The Original Mix Co has become known for bringing popular events like Bites & Beats and twilight Christmas markets to town.
Dave’s experience running major events like Easterfest, Streets & Lanes Festival and the hugely successful Brewoomba puts him in good stead for managing an event like Brews and Barbie Bash, specially since he has all the tools to provide the services from the best event security company.
Sam has owned her own business for several years and is well known in the market scene (and beyond); selling her famous fudge and ably assisting with organising markets.
Shana has her own marketing agency, working with local businesses across all forms of marketing, including events like the Preston Peak Wedding Festival.
The new team look forward to building their existing events; and looking at new opportunities too.
The first event will be Bites & Beats to be held on August 31st with more details to be announced very soon. Brews & Barbie Bash 2019 will be held in early November; with a new venue, fantastic line-up of vendors and an exciting new BBQ competition concept in the planning.
