What types of workshop venues are the most popular in Melbourne?

You'll find a lot of different types of workshop venues in Melbourne. Deciding which one is best suited for your workshop will depend on what you want out of your event. Here are some workshop venue types you can choose from:

Hotel conference rooms

Hotels often have a meeting room for hire that guests and members of the public can use. Hotel conference rooms typically offer air-conditioning, projectors, microphones, video conferencing tools and other high-end equipment too. They might also have catering options available if you need them. Conference rooms are great if your workshop is for a large audience and you want to have all your resources on one site.

Convention centres

Convention centres, also called exhibition halls, are ideal for mid-sized to large workshops. They're purpose-built for events such as this and often have services like catering, event management and signage available. They can also have the latest equipment that's suitable for workshops such as projectors, whiteboards and screens. These convention centres usually have the services of sound and light technicians included in their packages.

Convention centres usually have hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars within their proximity. Your guests will appreciate the convenience of being able to walk between the event space and their accommodation or dining options.


Restaurants are great for small business gatherings such as meetings, networking events and intimate workshops. This type of event space is great if you want your guests to enjoy a meal during the event and have access to a bar afterwards. Like hotel conference rooms, restaurants are usually only suitable for small to mid-sized workshops.

Function rooms

A function room is a great option if you're looking for a workshop venue in a smaller event space. You can find a function room in most hotels. Some bars and event spaces such as art galleries also offer these for hire. They typically have the same equipment as hotel conference rooms and restaurants but they aren't as big. Function room package usually come with the catering services available at their host hotel or restaurant.

Office spaces

Renting an office space is another popular option for those who want to host a workshop in Melbourne. Office spaces come with many of the same benefits as convention centres and function rooms. However, unlike the other types of workshop venues, you can choose to host your event in any part of the office space that you want.

Coworking Spaces

Coworking spaces are a newer type of venue that's perfect for small to medium workshops. They offer a more flexible and relaxed environment than most other types of workshop venues. Coworking spaces usually have all the necessary equipment for your workshops such as projectors, whiteboards and screens. They also often have catering options available.
