'You can only become truly accomplished at something you love." - Maya Angelou

here's what our clients say.


"You and your team are absolute best in class in client services and management of sponsorships and events. It has been an amazing experience working with the Lemongrass Team for the past 3 years, and I do look forward to seeing what you guys have in store."

South Australia Department for Trade & Investment

"Rob Eliott and his team at Lemongrass were an integral partner to deliver an exemplary program of events in New Zealand. His expertise in event management, knowledge of the wine, F&B sectors, strong connections to importers, distributors and trade, and an unwavering commitment to delivering a high-quality program despite the many challenges that were presented is testimony to his professionalism and the quality of this organisation and the staff engaged by Rob. Lemongrass is now regarded as an important partner for the South Australian Government in the New Zealand market, and we would not hesitate to engage Rob and his team for future activations."

Renaissance Brewing

"Thanks again for you and your team's work over the week what a monster effort, a top team you have there!"

Citigroup NZ

"Thank you so much for an incredibly well-run event. Everyone was so complimentary, especially on the finer touches with our logo on the glass balustrade and menus. The food and service were exceptional - no one could fault it! I think it was our best event yet!" 

Hunter Wines

"The event offered high calibre clientele who had an interest in wine. The clientele was generally interested in being educated and trying wines they wouldn’t usually try."

Spy Valley

"We seriously loved the event…the vibe was awesome, and the right kind of people were there. It’s nice when they are prepared to pay for the tastings instead of just getting them all free."

The Coffee Store

Thanks very much for inviting me to be a part of Taste of Auckland this year. I had a great time and I’m sure the exposure will go a long way to helping put The Coffee Store on the map."

Blush Gin

"Just wanted to say what an awesome festival! As I said we are definitely back next year."

Bauer Media

"A quick note to say thanks again – all clients and staff who received tickets had a great time and loved the VIP area as a base while they could take off and try all the goodies around. Most are saying the best they have been too."

Kalex Wines

"A fantastic event attracting educated wine fans who are looking for something new, innovative, boutique or just to enjoy their favourite wine in a fun atmosphere. Great vibe for all sessions. Loved it!"

Karikari Estate

"I just want to say thank you to you and your crew. Winetopia is a great event and well-organised. Great hospitality. Winetopia is the best show we have ever attended. Entertaining and professional."

First Travel

Hi Team, Thanks so much for having us at Taste and looking after us so well. Nothing was ever too much trouble and all your staff were wonderful to deal with during our functions and throughout the festival."


(Sir Peter Blake Foundation)
