Peter Jones has been creating special events ever since he can remember and long before Peter Jones Special Events was established. This year celebrates 25 years of Peter deciding to start his own “party” business – and what a journey that has been. There are a lot less parties now but many more amazing and spectacular events, although that’s only part of the story. Peter has continually dedicated a great deal of time to representing and supporting the industry at many levels.
He recently stepped down as Chairman of the Victoria Events Industry Council (VEIC) and as a member of the Victoria Tourism Industry Council. Peter was also a board member of Destination Melbourne and past President of the Melbourne chapter of the International Special Events Society (ISES). He regularly lectures at numerous event management courses, and only wishes there was a course around when he was studying.
