WHO ARE WE?

As well as a number of large Shopping Centre Mini Pop Up Markets, namely Markets at the Fair Erina and Collective Space Perth. Browse Events also own and operate Coasties Entertainment, promoting local Central Coast Musicians.
Working with local Councils (Central Coast Council & Lake Macquarie Council), land owners, Government departments and Asset management companies such as Vicinity Group, Lend Lease, AMP Capital, Gibbons Group and Crowne Plaza, the team at Browse Events understand how to operate successful markets and events.
Owner of Browse Events, Joanne Giles created the first Terrigal Beach Markets in 2015, working closely with the City of Gosford Council and all other stakeholders along with local shopfront businesses to create a very successful market on the Terrigal Esplanade. Due to a large oversupply of market stall holders this led to the creation of new markets - Markets at The Fair, Riverside Park Markets and Shopping Centre Pop Up Activations. In December 2018 Browse Events secured the ownership of the Shelly Beach Markets, in which Joanne relocated to the Long Jetty Foreshore and renamed it Long Jetty Markets. Most recent additions to the outdoor market portfolio is securing the ownership of the Wyee Markets and the East Gosford Markets. The East Gosford Markets launched in February 2021 after working closely with Father Greg Skulski from the St Patricks Parish to create a new local shopping experience at St Patricks Primary School, East Gosford.
During the tough Covid-19 restrictions in 2020 Browse Events launched an online version of the markets, giving local Central Coast businesses the opportunity to still sell their local produce and goods via a safe online portal during the lockdown months. This was very well received by local and interstate shoppers, who preferred to support local Australian businesses. This service continues into 2021.
Browse Events has been nominated for several Business awards and Owner Joanne Giles was recently a Finalist in the 2018 & 2019 Australian Young Entrepreneur Business Awards.
