Why did you start Greenevent?
The business started over 30 years ago as Watson and Thomson landscaping and indoor plants. 5 years later, Managing director, Michael Thomson and General Manger, James Wagstaff changed the pace and name to Greenevent, as they saw there was a real need for green styling in the event and exhibition industry and as they say, the rest is history! James and Michael are multi-talented and live and breathe the world of events and plants. There is not a major event in Melbourne that goes past that Greenevent is not involved in.
Today the squad consists of 30 core staff, of qualified, experienced and committed team of horticulturalists, landscapers, builders, florists and event and project managers. It is a complete collaborative team effort to make our work come to life!
