Our Ethos

Snack On: Our unique ‘snack station’ concept allows your delegates to choose their own in-room snacks throughout the day, whether it’s jelly beans for a sugar hit, almonds for something healthier or simply refreshing mints.

Break Time: When it comes time to break for morning and afternoon tea, your delegates will love our premium range of Dilmah Herbal Teas and espresso coffees.

Eat Well: Treat your delegates to food that is not only delicious, it’s fresh and healthy too. When it comes time for lunch, our shared lunch concepts are great for encouraging conversation and networking.

Chill Out: Looking for the perfect venue for your social function or somewhere to gather post conference? We offer two fantastic spaces. On15, situated on the 15th floor with views across the Melbourne cityscape, is perfect for a cocktail party or dinner. And Cocoon Bar, a chic and stylish lounge bar, is a great place to host a cocktail party or enjoy a relaxed drink.
