Case Studies


2016 – 2022

For two days in April or May Agrotrend offers the opportunity to promote products and services to a dedicated agricultural and horticultural audience drawn principally from the Wide-Bay Burnett, but also to visitors from around the nation and overseas.  The first Agrotrend was held in 1978 and since then hundreds of thousands of visitors have passed through the gates while an estimated $60 million dollars has been poured into our local economy.  Over the past few years the event has grown and is now the largest agricultural and lifestyle expo in the Wide Bay Region.   Past exhibits have showcased the latest innovations for sugar, horticulture, irrigation and water supply, machinery, motor vehicles and trucks, livestock and animal husbandry, aquaculture, agricultural supplies, packaging and transportation and a range of other rural technologies and industries.

Ainsley was event manager of this event working in partnership with the Rotary Club of Bundaberg.


Business Excellence Awards

2020 – Current

Celebrating success is an integral part of any business and the Bundaberg Regional Chambers of Commerce Business Excellence Awards is an ideal opportunity for our region’s businesses to celebrate and be recognised for their achievements.

The aims of the Chamber Business Awards are to recognise and reward business excellence within their industry, provide networking opportunities and assist businesses in sharing success and developing new relationships.

These awards are the ideal platform for businesses to be recognised for their valued contribution to the community and encourage innovation, business excellence and good corporate social responsibility practices.

The awards are open to any businesses that are operating in the Bundaberg Region within the Bundaberg Regional Council Boundaries, as defined by the Queensland Electoral Commission, which can highlight excellence in their achievements and operations.

The awards are held annually.

Australia Day Celebrations

2019 – Current

For the past four years the Rotary Club of Bundaberg City Daybreak have been successful in their bid to host the Bundaberg Regional Council’s Australia Day event.  Each year it has been held at Nielson Park, Bargara and has grown in strength over the years. With Great Australian Bites funding from the QLD Government this is a celebration of local musicians and local food.  Attracting a crowd of over 3000 each year it is a popular event.

Autumn Sounds

Autumn Sounds was held at Alexandra Park on Easter Sunday in 2014.  The newest music event on Bundaberg’s calendar entertained locals and visitors alike with high profile entertainment, food and wine.

A boutique food, beverage and music experience like no other.  Event line up at the inaugural event at Alexandra Park, Bundaberg includes Cat Empire, Blue Juice, The Jungle Giants, The John Steel Singers, Cheap Fakes, Carl Wockner, Storm Chasers and Bucketseats.

Autumn Sounds was aimed at a 25 plus crowd looking to experience an entertainment offer not normally found in regional locations and promises to continue this boutique event in 2015.

Event Networx was contracted to write the Event Management Plan and Risk Management Plan and liaise with key stakeholders including Council, Police, Emergency Services and Liquor Licencing

Afloat – Creative Regions

AFLOAT is an arts project that aims to capture the stories of the flood from those directly affected by the rising waters to those who helped strangers scrub floors and walls.  These stories will be conveyed through ephemeral public art, theatre, music, digital media, photography and interactive smart phone technology.  This multifaceted project aims to bring the community together once again to commemorate a significant moment in local history, celebrate the resilience of our region and engage in an arts-led recovery process.

Afloat was originally delivered in the Bundaberg Region funded through the Queensland Government’s Flexible Funding Program administered by the Bundaberg Regional Council.  Planning was well underway to deliver other projects and a major community event when the January 2013 floods and tornadoes hit the region.  The Creative Recovery – Building Resilience funding through Arts Queensland then expanded the project and enabled four events to now be produced in the flood and tornado affected lower Gladstone Region, Bundaberg, Fraser Coast and North Burnett.

The following are the key objectives of Afloat:

  • Offering people an opportunity to tell their story, when they are ready, to assist with their personal recovery
  • Capturing stories of a significant moment in our region’s history
  • Telling those stories through various artistic mediums including music, dance, digital media, film, visual art and writing
  • Showcasing the outcomes of the various program streams of Afloat at four major community events across the regions
  • Demonstrating how the arts can help communities to recover socially, culturally and economically
  • Helping to build community resilience
  • Employment of local artists and artsworkers
  • Skill development for artists and artsworkers
  • Volunteer opportunities for the community to participate in the project

Event Networx was contracted by Creative Regions as project manager.
