By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Sifting through the 300+ events that make up this year’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival can be daunting, but don’t worry – we’ve done the hard work for you. Below is a selection of events that are hosted by our friends, on topics that we love, or held in regions that we frequent. Enjoy.

NZ Wine

Here are four events hosted by our friends at New Zealand Winegrowers as part of their trans-Tasman takeover.

Heart, Land and Sea

Shiraz (Syrah!) and Lamb Snacks

What Lies Beneath: Cellar Sessions

Riesling and Raw Bar

Sake

It’s not always about wine at REVEL HQ; just look at Sake Matsuri. Here are three sake events we like the look of.

The Evolution of Sake

For Sake’s Sake

Ezard x Maker & Monger x Black Market Sake

Friends

Here are two from our mates at the Carlton Wine Room:

Head of Production (Full time, Melbourne based)

By | News | No Comments

HEAD OF PRODUCTION

REVEL is seeking a Head of Production who is keen and ready to make a significant impact on the global experience and events stage.

The role, based in Collingwood, will see the successful candidate coordinate and execute over 30 major events annually both here in Australia and abroad. It will require them to travel often to many of the countries and cities REVEL operates in. They will help lead, drive and coordinate both our local and international teams.

Does this sound like you?

ABOUT US:

REVEL is a global experience and media company hell bent on creating remarkable experiences that people love and learn from. Our events, focused primarily around our love of wine and food (in that order!), include showstoppers like Pinot Palooza, MOULD – A Cheese Festival, Sake Matsuri, Oinofilia.wine and more.

We run events in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, and have plans to expand into the USA (and beyond!) in the very near future.

ABOUT YOU:

You thrive in a fast-paced environment and live to conquer new challenges and new cities. You have extensive event experience and excel at event planning, budgeting, management, reporting, supplier relationships and more. It’s your thing.

You love working with a small and dynamic team and lead with empathy and respect, always. You’re constantly curious about ways to improve our events. You care deeply about our guests, our winery and food exhibitors, our suppliers and each event’s financials.

In short, you really give a shit about what you do.

Although you’ll report to the CEO, you can work autonomously and feel confident making clear and considered decisions; and can take responsibility for them.
You don’t see problems; only solutions.
You exude and thrive on positivity.

THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE WILL:

  • Have extensive event experience and a deep understanding of event financials and fiscal reporting, including tracking budget costs throughout the course of projects and communicating scope changes that effect the bottom line. 
  • Understand profit margins and effectively meet or exceed them (but not at the expense of the experience)
  • Have strong people management skills and be able to manage teams both in Australia and abroad and be empathetic and respectful to cultural diversities within.
  • Not just be a manager, but a mentor to other team members.
  • Know how to manage and respect relationships suppliers and key stakeholders and understand we can’t do what we do without them.
  • Be willing to work a flexible schedule based on the events and changing priorities of the team. This includes weekend and evening work.
  • Be highly organised and time proficient.
  • Love to create meaningful post-event reports for both internal and external use.
  • Have an in-depth understanding of technology and be proficient in Microsoft Office Suite, Slack, Dropbox, Xero, Airtable and WordPress, or be able to grasp new tools quickly.
  • A valid Australian driver’s licence and passport.
  • The ability to travel both interstate and internationally.

The role is based in Collingwood, Melbourne and the salary is negotiable for the right human.
All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

So, if you’re keen to join the REVEL family, please apply by sending a cover letter and resumé to both dan@revel.global & claudia@revel.global

2018 DIGITAL WINE COMMUNICATOR OF THE YEAR

By | News | No Comments

WE WON AN AWARD!!

In November this year, REVEL was awarded Digital Wine Communicator of the Year by the Wine Communicators of Australia.

As written on the WCA website, the award is given:

“In recognition of outstanding work by an online wine communicator in any digital category including website, video, vodcast or podcast.

This award acknowledges innovation, contemporary and clever use of a suite of communication tools now available to the modern wine communicator.”

While we’re known as an events company, over the past few years we’ve been pushing hard into the media space. This includes building up our social media profiles on Instagram and Facebook, creating native content (copy, video and photography), publishing our own magazine and working with our digital agency, Bolster, to ensure what we’re doing is being seen by the right people (you!).

We’re really proud, humbled and excited that our efforts are being recognised, so thank you to the WCA, and thank you, you. We couldn’t have done this without your support.
