The Melbourne Wedding Industry’s Growing Force
Over the last year, Showtime Event Group has fast become one of the premier names in Melbourne’s rapidly changing weddings events industry. Winning some of the most coveted new and historical spaces around the city centre and beyond.
From a sole venue in 2011 on South Wharf promenade (a ghost town at the time), to last year winning best reception venue in Australia (2018 ABIA Awards) and successful bids to become exclusive event partners and caterers at the Old Melbourne Gaol, and possibly one of the most multifaceted and intriguing spaces in all of Victoria, the State Library Victoria. Originally known as Showtime Events, a refresh and reposition created the new brand, Showtime Event Group. Solidifying the award winning and highly regarded presence in producing and catering top quality weddings, from start to finish.
Showtime Event Group now offers a wide variety of spaces that cater to an ever expanding market of couples that seem to be looking for unique and creative wedding options. Along with exclusive venues, Showtime Event Group has thought broader still, forming partnerships with a range of other spaces across Melbourne, including art galleries, gardens, microbreweries, whisky distilleries and yacht clubs.
If that wasn’t enough, the addition of an external catering arm means being able to bring their renowned food and events expertise to ‘your place’ or anywhere you see fit for your own wedding day.
“We found that couples are now more than ever trying to find something out of the box to differentiate themselves from what has become a stagnant market of ageing ballrooms and function venues. That’s why we have tried to push ourselves to have an exciting offering we can tailor to anyone’s taste.” – Troy Stasinowsky, Head of Business Development.
With the marriage rate in Australia not showing any sign of slowing and the recent addition of same-sex marriage to the foray it is a busy time to be in the weddings industry and one that has room to break from what was considered traditional ceremonies and receptions.
