“I was incredibly impressed with Ellie and her management of the RiverCity focus group venue; exceptional level of service, anticipating every detail, professional manner and just that personal touch that really sets RiverCity apart. I have no hesitation recommending this as my first venue of choice in Brisbane”
Kim Braganza - Associate Director, Added Value

“RiverCity is great – it’s a venue where respondents are made to feel comfortable and relaxed. This combined with their attention to detail, willingness to go the extra mile and Ellie’s genuine desire to make everything run as smoothly as possible for the moderator makes RiverCity my first choice every time”
Philippa Ung - Director, Colmar Brunton
“I’ve been running groups all over Australia for over 3 decades and I know how important a good group facility, and supportive, professional staff can be. For me, Ellie and her crew are the best in the country. They set the mood in the waiting room, so participants come in buzzed and happy. And they really take care of you when you are tired and bleary eyed. Over the years, Ellie has gone out of her way to help - personally driving my back to my hotel on countless occasions, and recently when I had a massive amount of back to back fieldwork on a tough topic and was sporting a massive cold, she was there with ginger tea and punnets of blue berries. For anyone else that would be going above and beyond – but with Ellie it comes from the heart.”;
Dr Vicki Arbes - Director, Whereto Research
“We have been using RiverCity Research Rooms for over 5 years. In this time, they have always been extremely professional and helpful. Ellie goes above and beyond to ensure that the moderator is looked after as well as being very courteous to our clients. It is always a pleasure to hold groups at RiverCity. As well as a great host the facility is modern and comfortable with professional quality sound and recording equipment. Our clients especially love the mirror room with its large client viewing room.”;
