What our clients say
"They have seen and done it all"
"The experience they have is worth so much (much more than you could ever capture on paper.) Since their humble beginnings, the work they do for us has increased exponentially and there's a good reason for that. X-Site have been our partner every step of the way. They are a true one-stop-shop. They literally do everything for our events. They bring everything together for us and we have fun doing it! "
Jane Migounoff, AFFCO
"They always say yes, you can always rely on them and their can-do attitude makes all the difference."
They are highly consultative and collaborative and work closely with us to bring our events to life. I've never had a single doubt, not once. They are so easy to work with and they go above and beyond every time. If you're looking for events management that's best practice - look no further.
Kate Shirtcliff, Chiefs Rugby Club
"X-Site are able to cater to such a variety of wedding themes from modern to rustic, boho to country - they have all the products & equipment to make your dream a reality."
They supply everything from plates & cutlery to bar equipment and heaters, they're a one-stop-shop, and it makes things so much easier dealing with just one supplier. They really are a full-service marquee & wedding hire specialist; they go above & beyond to make things possible, nothing is a problem & they will do their utmost to accommodate your wishes.
Nivanah Gallagher, Bride
"With other contractors sometimes, I'd have to watch over their work, or I'd be nervous about how they were representing us, but that's never been the case with the X-Site crew."
They get the job done professionally and they make it easy. They are always my first port of call for any events and I'd happily recommend them to anyone.
Sam Ellis, The IRONMAN Group
Meet the Team
I am very proud of what we've achieved since our humble beginnings, and all these years later I am still passionate about the industry and the business.
I am lucky to have the most amazing (and very understanding and patient) business and life partner in Donna Allen. Outside of work I play a bit of golf, collect gin, and fish! That's what I do! That's all I have time for! I need to be busy or I get bored without a project to focus on!
I am the (very proud, understanding, and patient) partner of Hamish. For me every day is different, from working in sales, truck driving to building events. I am excited and passionate about our business and what the future will bring. Outside of work I love hanging around home working on our projects, spending time with family and the grandkids, getting in some golf, and going fishing.
I love seeing live events come to life, from the planning stage to concept designs and installation. I love the fast-paced, people-focused aspects of this industry with every day bringing something new. When I'm not at work, I enjoy mountain biking and a bit of running.
I am into my 18th year in the industry and I am just as passionate today about the industry and what I do. I love working with people on all sorts of events, large and small, and the challenge we have at X-Site to multitask multiple events all at the same time.
I'm relatively new to the event industry but bring a wealth of sales, customer service and logistics experience to the role. I love the social aspect of this industry and interacting with people from all walks of life. Honesty, respect and teamwork are all important to me as you can't have a successful team without them. Outside of work you will find me spending time with my young family as well as playing rugby and touch.
