Mr ‘Never say no’
General Manager, Brad Dabbs
Brad has been at the helm of Showtime Event Group since it’s inception. With this time with the company comes seasoned knowledge and experience which is unsurpassed. Brad comes from a background of resorts and hotels, were guest experience and satisfaction is first and foremost.
‘In the early days I wanted to make things easy for couples. Everyone in the market had a wedding package, but then they also had a very long list of extra things you had to pay for. I wanted Showtime Events Centre to show that when you book this venue, we include all the little things you don’t want to go away and think about, or budget for, on top of your reception’.
‘I never wanted to be in a position that I had to tell a couple that what they wanted couldn’t be done. I never wanted to say no. So for the past 7 years I’ve tried my hardest to meet every couple, whether its on their first site, as host at their menu tasting, or there to greet them on the big night. I’ve listened to the changing market, and I’ve ensured that our team has multiple packages, price points and menu options to facilitate any request that comes through.’
