‘Business as usual’ after Decorative Events warehouse fire

The team at Decorative Events & Exhibitions have relocated less than 24 hours after a large fire took hold of their Mascot warehouse.

Decorative Events & Exhibitions has confirmed it is “business as usual” after a large fire broke out at the two-storey office in Mascot on Tuesday night.

Fire and emergency services were called to the Coward Street warehouse and office building which went up in flames sometime around 9pm.

More than 80 firefighters were on the scene to battle the burning building, located just two kilometres away from Sydney Airport.

Decorative Events & Exhibitions has confirmed no one was injured in the blaze.

In less than 24 hours after the blaze took hold, Decorative Events & Exhibitions had established a new office and warehouse in nearby Rosebery.


In a statement, Decorative Events & Exhibitions managing director Mark Magennis said the company’s fleet has not been damaged by the fire and the team is now working around the clock to relocate everything to the new warehouse.

“Our sales, design, production and operational teams are available to receive and action all enquires and client events,” he said.

“Our priority is to ensure that our client events, activations and exhibitions are not affected. DE&E’s internal systems are cloud-based which is reassuring as no client will be impacted.

“We are and will continue to be grateful for your ongoing support. It’s business as usual and we look forward to providing the best service that you have come to expect over the last 18 years.”
