Transportation of the Year – Kombi Celebrations
“This is such a wonderful recognition for our business, a huge thank you to the elite judging panel this year and to the WEOA for selecting Kombi Celebrations as winners of Transportation of the Year 2014, Melbourne and a special congratulations to all nominees and winners of these awards.
Awards are such a wonderful component to any business and allows our team and brand to be recognised as elite wedding industry professionals just as they deserve and puts our brand on the map as a 5* service provider giving clients and industry professionals reassurance of our place in the market.
On a personal note, whilst 2014 has seen some wonderful client events and acknowledgements to our brand and our very own special event the birth of our little dub-bub Beau, it has also seen a challenging year for Kombi Celebrations (which for legal reasons we can’t go into) with some very interesting industry challenges presented to us; and I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that in this growing category of Kombi Hire; not one of us is the same, we all have very different personalities, skills, qualities, styles and colours of vehicles that complement us in what we do for our own businesses that makes it uniquely ours – this is something that all kombi hire vendors should embrace and be proud of; taking something they love and turning it into a profession.
The submission process for any awards is always a great opportunity for us to review our business progress, and reflect on any changes required to continue its success as well as take a step back and recognise and acknowledge the hard work and dedication by our team and thank you to all our clients for their support during 2014. This award is for ALL our crew here at Kombi Celebrations and Steve and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn’t of done this without you ALL.”
