The environment and surroundings have a critical effect on the people within an area; whether you need a relaxed space to encourage the fertile minds of your team, or you wish to impress your clients with your best ever event – The Glasshouse has many spaces and endless possibilities to suit your business needs. Understated or lavish – whatever they may be – we know how to grow your business at The Glasshouse.
When it comes to putting on a corporate event that leaves your guests impressed, you need to perfect three key elements – versatility, style and,most importantly, the venue.
We admit that while ticking all those boxes – and doing it well – may seem a little daunting, finding a venue that helps you achieve your business needs with ease is the first step in ensuring your experience is as stress-free as possible.
Consider your guests, be it your clients or your team – and then give some thought to the venue non-negotiables. Do you need to be near the Melbourne CBD? Walking distance from public transport? Close to entertainment venues for pre or post-show drinks, or not too far from your recommended hotels?
If you’re yet to discover The Glasshouse, you’re in for an absolute treat. Our position within the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct (only a stone’s throw from the CBD and Richmond – tick) makes it an obvious choice for corporate clients and with its close proximity to Rod Laver Arena and Olympic Park, consider your pre-show canapes and drinks sorted.
But that’s just one box – what about the facilities needed for corporate events of any scale?
Look for a space that fits your business goals like a glove. The last thing you want when trying to impress your clients is hiring an extravagant ballroom for an intimate cocktail evening that results in a half empty room and everyone feeling a little awkward. Engaging one of our exceptional helpers at The Big Group would avoid any such disaster – rest assured.
Catering for functions of all sizes and styles, you only need to browse the spaces The Glasshouse has to offer to find your right fit.
Hosting an important meeting on the smaller scale? Look for a space like The Boardroom and The Executive Room – venues with breathtaking views that can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Meetings often come with technological requirements, so ensure your venue can seamlessly cater for all your teleconference needs in order to put a professional spin on anything you need to do.
If you want to wow your guests with high tech visuals and a snazzy presentation – why not hire an entire theatre? A venue like The Glasshouse Theatre, with state-of-the-art facilities and space to comfortably fit up to 152 people, it will have your audience appreciating how to do business – seriously, and with impeccable style.
But when it’s time to pull out all the stops and throw an extravaganza that is flawlessly fabulous, forget about meeting rooms, long tables and wheely chairs – you need The Event Space. Think fundraisers, gala dinners, corporate awards and black tie affairs with floor to ceiling windows, views of Olympic Park and modern facilities that will leave your guests awed (and anticipating your next event).
Styling your event doesn’t end with choosing a space however; finding a team of professional stylists to transform your venue, impress your clients’ taste buds and ensure your event planning process is stress-free is a must. Not sure which wine compliments the steak? That’s ok – that’s not your job. An experienced team like The Big Group at The Glasshouse will handle everything, from breakfast conferences to evening soirees, leaving you with the time and energy to do what you do best – get on with business.
It’s little wonder why corporates love The Glasshouse – it’s the perfect place to grow your business. The most versatile venue Melbourne has to offer, we understand what businesses need to flourish and can cater for your every need – from size and style, to facilities and technology.
A place that makes a workday feel like a holiday, you’ll find yourself basking in the lush greenery of the Yarra River, indulging in delicious food and drinks, and soaking in views of the Olympic Precinct. In fact, The Glasshouse only comes with one warning – if you find your guests eyes glazing over while they take in the stunning views, we assume it’s not you. But we won’t take responsibility either…
