ABOUT MODELCRAFT GROUP
As our name (model – craft) suggests we started life many years ago as a modelmaking firm. What was a passion for a couple of young guys has grown into an international business. Those two guys (note the word “young” is omitted) are still here and still passionate, but now not just about models.
Over the past 30 years Modelcraft has been called upon by clients all over the world to assist them when they needed to present their products and services. Whether this was something as large as a total solution for their involvement in an international trade exhibition or a simple graphic for an email campaign we have been able to help successfully.
So from a modelmaking firm in a grungy inner city studio in Sydney, Australia we have associated offices in three countries , working across a range of services to achieve the Modelcraft Group goal, which is to provide our clients with a solution that we ourselves would want if we were them. The Bottom line for us is to treat our clients as we want them to treat us. It is often said that you are only as good as the promises you keep and this really is true of every business. Keeping this thought fresh in the minds of our team is part of the daily routine at the Modelcraft Group.
Although each division has its own identity, they seamlessly work together, if and when needed, to provide the best possible solution to our clients. The benefit of working with the Modelcraft group is that you will get that solution provided to you “under the one roof”… and that is the level of comfort our clients want.
Our people are our strength and we hand pick the team in each location to ensure that every aspect of your project is managed professionally. We have experts available in the technical and artistic requirements needed for your project…from project planning, through design, procurement, fabrication and implementation – we have you in safe hands.

Event Planning and Management
After many years working the other side of the table with Event Managers and Planners it occurred to some of our clients that Modelcraft were actually the ones doing all the planning and managing but we were sitting in the wrong chair! Buoyed by the confident encouragement of many we moved into the lead role with enthusiasm.
Our planning and management team have quickly developed a love of festivals and events, with each one taking on special meaning for us. With this zest for the job we are proud to say our goal is to always exceed our clients expectations rather than just meeting them.
To achieve this we know only too well that we must always have a clear understanding of our clients goals and desired outcomes. Careful and thorough planning, in collaboration with the client team, is the key to our success and ensures that our clients come back to work with us again and again. On top of this we are proud to say that most new clients have arrived at our door through personal recommendation rather than being referred by our friend GOOGLE!
After so many years in the industry we also have a great many reliable local companies to call on to fill in and support where we cannot do so from our in-house capability. Be it equipment and staging rental, fireworks, laser shows, dancers, choreographers, caterers and much more Modelcraft can confidently point you in the right direction.
Whether your festival or event is small or large, corporate or public, city or regional…Modelcraft is the reliable and creative company that you should be talking to.
Museum Operations and Management
Our clients know that building a new museum, or updating an existing one, is an exciting process, with the end result being delivery of a multi-function venue that is world class. Operations and ongoing management need to meet the same high standards.

Modelcraft have in recent years developed an in-house team with expertise in Museum Operations and offer services including the day to day public facing operational management team, docent staffing, ushers and hosts, handbook and handout materials development, educational management, document control and ongoing docent upskilling and training.
We work with our clients to ensure that the visitor experience matches the high standards being set by their venue, not just at the opening but for years to come.
Modelcraft have several venues under management within KSA and in line with the goals of the Vision 2030 we seek to support this initiative through ongoing knowledge transfer to local graduates we have recruited for placement throughout our teams.
