Corporate Function Venues Hire Guide

Browsing venues for corporate events in Melbourne? Here’s what you might want to keep in mind while searching for the perfect place:

  • Check the calendar – Keep other industry events in mind while planning your own! You don’t want to force your attendees to make a choice, so be sure to check which dates are already taken and consider those remaining. Try to consider a few different timings, as this will give you more flexibility to choose the perfect venue for your function.
  • Central or off-beat? – If you’re organising a massive full-day (or multiple-day) event, it makes sense to hire a large venue in a more remote location on the outskirts of Melbourne. This will help everyone stay focused, but do keep in mind that this works best for big events with a budget to match. If you’re organising a more modest corporate function, it’s better to choose an easily accessible venue in the city centre or in inner Melbourne suburbs.
  • Define the high traffic areas – This is crucial to make the right use of the space. Remember that some spots of the event venue might get particularly crowded. These typically include the entrance or the registration desks. Most corporate event venue managers know about these issues and will be happy to help you arrange the right flow for your event.
  • Don’t lose your voice – The acoustics is often one of the most overlooked aspects of corporate events – you don’t want to end up having problems with the A/V equipment and getting the sound right on the day. This concern is best avoided by testing everything before your corporate event takes place – better safe than sorry!

This is always a hot topic in Melbourne, with rates that vary according to heaps of different factors, starting from size and location of the corporate function venue. It may get quite complex, but don’t stress it! We’ve dug into our corporate venue hire data and created a handy guide to corporate event venue prices in Melbourne. Check it out below!

  • The vast majority of corporate function venues in Melbourne is priced with a minimum spend. Choosing this option means you only spend a cent on the venue itself, and then only pay a set amount for food and drinks - sounds like quite the deal, doesn’t it? Minimum spend rates for corporate event venues in Melbourne typically range from $500 for smaller spaces up to as much as $10,000 for large halls.
  • If you’d like to work mostly with external event suppliers, your best choice is to pick a corporate function venue with a hire fee. The rates start at $600 per evening and can go up to $5000 for really large blank canvas spaces. Keep in mind that the hire fee only covers the costs of using the venue, while any other features are usually not included.

These generally cover the costs of venue hire, refreshments and the use of event facilities. The daily delegate rates for corporate events in Melbourne range between $25-$85.

Need more tips? We’re answering the most frequently asked questions about corporate event venue hire below:

I’m hosting an event for my startup company. Any recommendations for small corporate function venues in Melbourne?
With Melbourne being Australia’s most significant startup hub, the opportunities are quite exciting. The city offers a wide choice of small corporate function spaces designed to cater to startups and many Melbourne restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars rent their spaces for corporate events. Or why not take advantage of the sunny days and organise an outdoor event? A rooftop terrace for a cocktail party or a beer garden to let your hair down – sounds tempting, doesn’t it?

How to host a successful corporate networking event in Melbourne?
When it comes to choosing a networking venue, location is key. Aim for something rather central that’s easy to get to. Melbourne’s CBD is a no-brainer in this case, but the choice is much wider than that! Other areas that work well for networking events include the Docklands (boasting heaps of ultra-modern waterfront venues that are perfect for corporate events), Port Melbourne (your ideal pick if relaxed coastal vibes are what you’re keen on) and Carlton (why not mix and mingle while you snack on Melbourne’s best pizza?).

I’m organising a corporate team building event in Melbourne. What are some of the best ideas for team building activities?
Why not learn something new while you have heaps of fun? Many Melbourne venues offer workshops that are sure to strengthen team bonds and keep your guests entertained. Who knows, maybe that’s how they’ll discover a new passion? Our favourite options for team building include cocktail masterclasses, cooking workshops and dance classes. If you’re keen on getting competitive, you can choose from mini golf courses, bars with pool tables and karaoke rooms for your big sing-off!
