It is with great pleasure and excitement that Showtime Event Group (SEG) announces the acquisition of key Melbourne venue, Aerial, to its portfolio of spaces.

Aerial is an extraordinary venue that displays modern elegance, this impressively large and well-designed space allows guests to be entertained in style. Previously under the ownership of renowned Melbourne caterer, Food and Desire, this well-established venue has been a primary event space in the South Wharf precinct since 2014. 

The venue has been developed to be a premium space ideal for events of all sizes ranging from networking events to large work celebrations.  Guests arrive at ground level into the atmospheric foyer, to discover an elevated cocktail area through the magnetic central staircase. Boasting panoramic 180-degree views across Melbourne’s skyline and glistening river, the soaring dining room provides the perfect backdrop for any business event. 

Purpose designed by renowned female architecture firm, MEME, Aerial houses a range of exceptional facilities, including a separate reception and cocktail room, high ceilings for installations, a production kitchen, office and storage. For planners wanting to start the event off with impact, ensure you take up the option to have your guests arrive by boat.

This most recent addition to SEG’s portfolio is a new inclusion as it provides the ability to cater for larger group sizes with the capacity of 400 seated or 600 cocktail guests. The venue’s large kitchen will provide additional facilities to cater to the portfolio of 22 exclusive spaces across eight locations within central Melbourne and in addition to the off-site catering.

Centrally located in South Wharf, it’s the ideal choice of venue for any local or business traveller. Hosting your event at Aerial provides easy access to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Pan Pacific Melbourne and the Docklands, only a short stroll over the footbridge.
