1.    Iconic Party Entrances:

Why not incorporate an 80s themed entrance tunnel into the venue. A ‘Slinky Tunnel’ with vibrant neon strings and mirrored flooring is the perfect way to transform your guests back in time.

2.    Neon Entrance Tunnels

Set the mood with a vibrant entrance tunnel, like our Dancing Through The Decades tunnel. Setting the stage for an evening of disco dancing!

3.    Neon Lighting

The 80s were all about neon. Opt for bright neon lighting and glowsticks throughout the venue to create an energetic ambiance. Neon signs with iconic phrases can also be placed around the venue.

4.    80s Themed Props

Nothing says 80s like vibrant boomboxes and Rubik’s cubes. Place themed props around the venue to capture the essence of the 80s.

  • We have worked with Eventologists for the a couple of years now and can't fault them from start to finish the whole process is very seamless and the stuff they do is incredible! We have themed evenings and they always come up with some fab ideas that help to emphasise the theme and bring it to life. Our events have conference sessions in the venue during the day and we transform them for our awards in the evening and Eventologists always completely transform the space for the evening so that it feels like you're in a completely different space which makes it all feel so much more special and a real celebration and by the time morning arrives its all completely cleared as if by magic!

  • A wonderful team who made our event space look incredible. Jacob took our ideas and brought them to life. We've had amazing feedback about the event design, so we couldn't be happier. Everyone really loved the living wall and trees!

  • Rita has been an absolute pleasure to work with; she listened to our ideas and vision and then totally ran with it and created something better than we could have ever imagined! On the event day, Rita and her team swooped in and decorated our venue in record time. Rita and the team were professional and efficient. We look forward to working with Eventologists again next year!

  • We’ve used the services of Eventologists on numerous occasions and their expertise is priceless. Great service as always from Rita and her team who are always full of ideas and ways to make your event stand out. We’ve hired sets for Moulin Rouge, Great Gatsby, Hollywood and Glitz and Glam plus they created a wonderful set for a festival including tress with festoon and flags. Highly recommended and great to work with.
