Reed Exhibitions

Showtime is a great venue for our post-exhibition parties. It's one of the few venues within close proximity to the MCEC that can accommodate the capacity we require and the decor and atmosphere is always a great change from your typical function spaces. The food and service is always impeccable and the team always look after our every need from start to finish. But the proof is really written on the faces of our attendees - kicking back, letting their hair down and just simply having a great time on the night! Thank you Showtime.

WARLDONSMITH Management – Various events

Showtime is an integral player in the South wharf precinct with their service offering strongly complementing the unique Melbourne experience for conference participants. In collaboration with their team, we’ve created dinners and large receptions for both national and international conferences at Showtime with great success. The food, beverage and service have always been outstanding. The flexibility of the space to suit smaller dinners or larger receptions and the option to extend into the adjacent venues in the creation of our events is also appealing, as is their location on the doorstep of the MCEC. The Showtime events team clearly demonstrate their commitment to success throughout the planning and delivery stages of the events we’ve held with them.

CI EVENTS – Various events

Over the past 18 months we have held a number of large corporate events at Showtime and would highly recommend the venue and the team for any corporate events large or small. A number of the events we held at Showtime have been logistically highly complex, required a lot of out of the box thinking and the team at Showtime were always up for the challenge and ensuring that there were delivering workable solutions. Nothing was ever too much and no challenge too great. This coupled with fantastic food & beverage whether it be for an event of 100 or an event for 5000 people makes it a fantastic venue for any occasion.


Just a quick email to pass on a huge thanks to yourself and your team for a very successful dinner at Cargo Hall last Tuesday night. Our delegates and our client thoroughly enjoyed the service and food provided. Rohan and the other catering staff were very attentive, friendly and provided amazing service. The room looked inviting with the lighting, scattered furniture and the singing was the perfect fit for the evening.The large plasma’s on arrival to assist delegates in locating the venue were a winner too. Thanks for all your assistance leading up to the event. It was always so useful to follow your suggestions and advice – thank you! We would love to hold an event at your venue again in the future!”


I wanted to thank you both with all my heart for an outstanding Event last Wednesday afternoon. Everyone including our Managing Director had a wonderful time and really loved your venue, enjoyed your food and your hospitality. You and your team are so professional and organised and I am so appreciative of all your assistance and guidance in helping me run our Christmas Event. You understood everything I wanted and worked so patiently with me.


All our feedback for the Optus Christmas Party at Showtime Events is positive. Our core team at Optus has experience with many venues nationally, and we believe Showtime to be quite exceptional. The level of detail to which Lisa committed and then followed up was very encouraging, and thorough. Lisa, and the whole team at Showtime should be proud of the event. In addition, the service staff were also professional, yet approachable, and should be commended. Security were also faultless in their execution. The food and beverage package was delicious, good quality and good value. Overall, we are happy clients.


Hosting our Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo Welcome Reception at Showtime made the event unique and unforgettable. The location was a true reflection of Melbourne and their professionalism and attention to detail meant that the event was seamless and met our brief perfectly. All of our guests spoke highly of the incredible array of food on offer and revelled in the atmosphere created by the venue’s lighting and decor. Working with Showtime was a pleasure, and I look forward to working with them again.


Getting it Right
Organisations are constantly expected to raise the bar to meet employee satisfaction.
To ensure we meet those expectations it is critical that we have trust when dealing with third party suppliers.
The fundamental key to success from our perspective is the ability for our partners to listen.
Showtime, was responsible for one of our big ticket events, The Salmat Christmas Party.
This is the party that our companies talk about, so getting right is essential for us.
Showtime was able to deliver in some many ways, from the initial meeting with the Showtime events planner to great staff, security, food and beverage.
If you are looking for a group of professionals who you know will deliver, choose Showtime


I have only has positive feedback with the entire event. I thank you and your team again for putting up with us and for the professionalism shown. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and fully appreciated yours and Shay’s constant support from the get-go.
Thank you.


As the chaos of Christmas has finished, I couldn’t go without telling you how much we enjoyed your friendly service for our end of year function. Your professionalism, courtesy and flexibility was greatly appreciated and allowed our night to be stress free & enjoyable as a result - which was what we really needed. Being an event company we didn’t want to work the event for once, we wanted to enjoy it, which thanks to Brad and Lisa, we were able to do so. It was great to see that our team didn’t have to bump in or out and you both were there to give support and advice throughout the planning and also the event night. Also a big thank you to ALL the other waiter staff who helped create the ambience of the night. The food and service was fantastic all our staff, clients and guests had a ball and we have heard nothing but praise.
Again thank you for your contributions over the last 6 months, I only wish it could all be done again so that we could sit back and absorb more of the fun on the night!


I just want to thank you for all your work at our event. The client was very happy and I've heard and received great feedback on the food and the friendliness of your staff. You and the team were very helpful during bump in and responded well to our last minute requests... and thank you for adding the Christmas music (especially Buble!). The client noticed the Christmas song before the speech and right after the speech, perfect timing! Overall this was a very successful event so thank you. Looking forward to work with you again.


We all had a great time at our event on Sunday. The food, drink and service were all excellent and of a very high standard. The look and feel of the room was amazing, such a beautiful venue. Special mention for Lisa Martin, whom I believe did an outstanding job of making sure everything ran smoothly on the day, she kept me informed and up to date all the way through the process – from when she took over the booking, through to the execution of the event. Always recommending the best options and following through any requests or queries promptly.


We were very impressed with the venue and the entire day ran really well from our perspective. The food and beverage was fantastic – the bbq lunch worked a treat with everyone having plenty to eat without that heavy/full feeling that sandwiches/wraps can leave. The ice-creams were delicious and your staff very thoughtfully provided take home boxes with the afternoon tea. For such a hot day the space was very nicely cooled.
