Caroline Hutchison

General Manager – Backdrops Fantastic Australia

Caroline is an accomplished Corporate Event Manager who has built a successful career within the events industry, currently leading the vibrant and creative team as the General Manager of Backdrops Fantastic Australia and Events Fantastic Australia. Caroline has over fifteen years experience, having started her career in the Corporate Event world organising all aspects of conferences, awards, and company events. Four years ago with a desire to delve further behind the scenes and explore the creative and artistic side of events Caroline traded in her Corporate Event Manager “client” role to join in the vibrant team at Backdrops Fantastic Australia as a “supplier”. Having extensive experience as both a client and supplier, Caroline uses this experience and understanding to ensure that the creative outcomes provided for clients always aligns with their event objective – which often ultimately is to make the company CEO, Event Organiser and the event as a whole look and feel great to the delegates – of course not necessarily in that order.

Caroline is an active member of the event industry and believes in giving back to the community and industry through volunteering, sponsorship and raising the bar of excellence within the industry. Caroline is a Board member for Women In Tourism, committee member for Meetings and Events Australia and actively involved and member of Business Chicks, Gold Coast Tourism and Burleigh Business Women.
