DALE POPE  /  Creative Director

Dale Pope is a full-service event planner and produces her own public events in and around Melbourne.

Dale has over a decade worth of experience in event-management. Her career began organically by organising and hosting charity events and elaborate parties from the ground up, for her family and friends. Initially living in America, Dale was awe-struck by the elaborate nature of organised celebration that is ingrained into American culture. This was epitomised by the national attitude towards themed holidays and attractions. Inspired by this social thirst for celebration, Dale applied everything she learnt from the leaders of the US Event Planning industry, and on her return to Australia founded her own event planning business, Dale Pope Events.

At her core, Dale has a love of organising elaborate events and raising money for charity. Having hosted numerous events for charities including The Starlight Foundation, The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre and The Adoption Exchange (USA) and was the Event Coordinator for The One By One Foundation.

With a flair for creating breathtaking themed events that transform a space and immerse her guests in an experience, Dale and her team have the imagination, innovation and commitment to detail to create personalised and unforgettable events. Dale is the founder and creative director of her signature event Spooktober Halloween Festival.  Spooktober started in 2013 Spooktober and has grown into Melbourne’s biggest Halloween event with over 20,000 people in attendance in 2018.
