Melbourne is the best best city in Australia for corporate events, so much so that it was recently voted as the most popular destination for conferences and seminars in Australia. It’s great appeal is due to the many and varied meeting venues within the central business district. Everything is catered for, from the smallest seminar to a large corporate event.
The city centre is roughly only a thirty minute drive from the airport, and conference hotels can be found both in the city and by Tullamarine Airport. This gives superb flexibility of suiting both the executive commuter or a more relaxed atmosphere of the almost European city with it’s many cafe’s, restaurants and wine bars.
Fenix Events is one of the top boutique events venues in Melbourne specialising in conferences, receptions and events. It has an unrivaled reputation as being one of the city’s most iconic venues due to it’s secluded waterfront setting.
There are four separate spaces for events; The Orana and the Botanica are both capable of holding over 120 people in a formal theatre set up. Whilst the larger Panorama and River Terrace can cater for over 300 people in a business format.
The Fenix also offers superb cuisine under the supervision of their executive chef Roland Gordon. This added culinary addition lifts the Fenix to a superior venue for those more important meetings.
The Carlton Brewhouse
Situated just ten minutes from the central business district, the Carlton Brewhouse is a conference venue with a big difference. The Brewhouse specialises in corporate events from conferences, awards nights and seminars making the Carlton Brewhouse a unique function venue. And if refreshment is required then the Carlton Brewery is just over the road.
There are three separate and flexible venue spaces that can hold up to 400 people. There are two main rooms; The Crown Room and the Victoria Room and these are suitable for between 10 and 200 delegates. Each room is fully equipped for any modern business event and the layout and seating is very flexible to suit all purposes.
You can even swap the normal formal business lunch for a BBQ in the outdoor Brewer’s Yard. And after proceedings a brewery tour with a beverage package would be a fine way to conclude the day.
