Our Story.

Joe De Abreu, Founder of Austage Events
Joe De Abreu, Founder

Being passionate about all things theatre has long been part of the De Abreu family history. So when Joe and Colleen De Abreu founded Austage in 1994 it was the most natural move. It just made sense.

Everything started in a small warehouse on Mitchell Road in Alexandria, Sydney; Joe and Colleen worked furiously to build the business from the ground up. Austage Events quickly became experts in spaces such as corporate, education, entertainment and fashion. Within the first decade, they grew to be a national company. Setting up local offices in Melbourne and Perth to service the local markets, with affiliates in between.

Through tireless work in the Not for Profit space, Joe and Colleen established long-standing relationships with key local charities that Austage Events still supports today.

Austage Events still has two generations of De Abreus working in the business and are proud to say that Austage Events is an Australian family owned and run business.

It is this family focus that drives the quality of events that we create and the personalised service we provide.

Jayson De Abreu

Director

Jayson has been in the Audio-Visual Industry for over 20 years. Throughout Australia and across the Asia Pacific Region, there are not many premier venues that he has not worked in.

Starting as a junior technician in the first Austage warehouse on Mitchell Road Jayson has had the pleasure of witnessing and contributing to the Austage Events business as it grew from its early beginnings, to the national brand it is today. Jayson has literally lived and breathed live events for most of his life. Having been raised in and around the theatre industry as a child, watching his parents Joe and Colleen work across all the theatres in Sydney. From his family’s deep history in theatre and audio-visual events, Jayson has seen the technology shift from the days of Slide Projection and Graphic Sets through to the Ultra High Definition realm of projection and mapping we find ourselves in today. Supported by excellent teams of technicians (his brothers in arms) in each office across Australia, Jayson has the rewarding job of working with Australia’s leading minds in the Event Industry.

He is grateful and proud of the diligent work achieved by all Austage Events employees, maintaining the high standards set by his mentor and father Joe De Abreu. Jayson passionately supports Chelsea Football Club and loves his Holden V8s.
