Crowne Plaza Melbourne Corporate Functions & Events

Pearl Riverfront at Crowne Plaza has been designed to meet your every need in an intelligent corporate event space. Located within the Melbourne CBD and offering accommodation options for extended conferences, your next corporate event or function has just found its home.

Six interconnecting studios offer flexible event spaces for meetings, planning sessions, theatre-style presentations, and celebratory events. Product launches and networking events also find a home at Pearl Waterfront, the minimalist contemporary design ensuring that your product or message is always front and centre.

Additionally, you’ll have access to four bespoke boardrooms and meeting rooms with state-of-the-art technology, ensuring you have all the comforts of a corporate office. One significant difference to your standard 9-5 is the unbelievable river views, the abundance of natural light, and 5-star service from the Pearl Riverfront Events Managers.

Taking into consideration that many offices have adopted a hybrid office/work-from-home arrangement, Pearl Riverfront is proud to offer virtual event solutions. In conjunction with Encore Event Technologies, the events team curates a seamless audio-visual experience to ensure your presentation is accessible to staff members working at home or abroad. This service ensures your team members can engage with you via live stream, audience polls, video conferences, webcasting, event apps, and much more.

Corporate catering packages are available, ensuring your colleagues are kept satisfied and inspired throughout your event. Depending on your event’s style and tone, you can opt for a traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or for big bash celebrations and black-tie events the in-house chefs can curate bespoke food and beverages menus.

End your day with a drink at Dive Bar, Pearl Riverfront’s newest events space. Dive Bar combines a New York dive bar aesthetic with Crowne Plaza’s signature high-end style. Dive Bar is the perfect spot to unwind after a conference or planning session, and your colleagues will enjoy the extensive drinks list and guest-controlled jukebox.
