Venue Partnerships

Current Opportunities

2018 Venue Partner Opportunities – seeking EOIs now until 31 August 2017 

Do you want more events more often at your venue?  Reach more businesses as Destination Melbourne’s Venue Partner, a unique opportunity only available once a year.

Destination Melbourne is seeking Venue Partner Expressions of Interest for the 2018 calendar year across our visitor industry events and key networking functions. We are looking to receive Expressions of Interest for any of the following events individually, or if you meet the criteria, as a collective. 

Our B2B audience represents leaders of the Melbourne and regional Victorian visitor industry. Our database is highly engaged, with emails opened at nearly twice the rate of the wider tourism / travel industry, and our combined social media reach is more than 9000 followers. 

We would appreciate receiving a tailored EOI as opposed to a standard quote and it is important that our criteria is specifically addressed within your expression of interest. 

Venue Partners help us make key events and workshops for our visitor industry possible, and in return receive valuable exposure and endorsement by Destination Melbourne, increasing the awareness of your unique conferencing space and hospitality offering across our influential visitor industry. 

We encourage prospective Destination Melbourne Venue Partners do more than simply sponsor an event; instead, we look forward to working closely with the successful venues in creating a customised Venue Partnership, tailored exclusively to you based on the extent of your offer.

Expressions of Interest are open until 4pm, Thursday 31 August 2017
