By Melbourne Showgrounds, 18 December, 2018

An exciting new function and event space is set to open in August 2019 at Victoria’s largest and most versatile indoor/outdoor events and exhibition venue, Melbourne Showgrounds.

The newly expanded event space totaling 2,500 sqm features a pillar-less 1,950sqm room ideal for functions and exhibitions along with a new 600sqm glass foyer.

Providing a stylish new versatile function space that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests for a sit-down gala-dinner or 1,800 guests for cocktail or theatre-style events, Melbourne Showgrounds will be the place to host your next function or exhibition.

Located only 7km from the CBD, with a number of new accommodation options nearby, Melbourne Showgrounds features onsite car parking and public transport stops within a five minute walk.

“The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria has invested $8.5 Million into developing a function and event space focused on customer needs as part of our overall vision for Melbourne Showgrounds,” said CEO Paul Guerra.

“Melbourne Showgrounds hosts many events, trade shows, and festivals, but we know it can do and be more. The function space will open up so many opportunities for event managers, not only locally in Melbourne, but also nationally and internationally,” Mr Guerra said.

With complete climate control, high ceilings, and an unobstructed floor space, the centre is ideal for events from sit-down gala dinners, large weddings, and award presentations through to exhibitions, tradeshows and live music events.

“The new function centre will provide an impressive alternative in Melbourne for event organisers, with the only limitation your imagination.” said Mr Guerra.
