Who's in the meeting?

This is a crucial question when it comes to booking a meeting room. Different venues have different benefits and some are better suited than others. An external meeting with a high-profile client will probably require a sleek, professional boardroom with the formal features of the classic meeting room done well. For internal meetings and more creative get together, you can afford to think outside the box. There are plenty of unconventional meeting rooms across the city. Brainstorm surrounded by modern art at The Basement Bar space, or impress with the well-lit and modern Boardroom at The Glasshouse.

Size matters

There are plenty of Melbourne meeting room spaces to choose from, whether you want a small, intimate space or something a bit bigger to impress clients. The most crucial thing is to consider the specific needs: 50 people for a training course? A large table for placing laptops? These things need to be in your head when planning a meeting. The venue will guide you, so go along and find out the best options for you and your business.

Budgeting your Melbourne meeting

Whilst a corporate meeting is a big deal, it's not good business sense to let costs run away from you. Setting a budget before you approach Melbourne's best venues is a great way to stay on top of your spending and impress the finance team at work. We recommend setting a per-person budget, that way you can see where your money is going, and retain control over the macro and micro spending of every single meeting you plan. Our venue finder comes with a budget feature, so booking a great room is easier than ever.

Cutting the commute

Commuting is an unavoidable fact of life in every in-person meeting. Get on your colleagues' good side by booking a professional venue near a central transport hub. There are plenty of great meeting venues near Melbourne’s Central Station, so any out-of-towners won't have any trouble getting to the meeting on time. For those who don't travel in, ask about video and audio capabilities (or, even better, request them in your event brief) - that way no one will feel left out of your well-planned Melbourne meeting room.
