Meet The Ivory, Elsternwick’s premiere corporate event space, ready to host your end-of-year Christmas celebrations, conferences, and corporate functions. There’s so much to love about this Georgian-style venue, and we’re here to tell you exactly why it’s the perfect spot for your next corporate event. Keep reading…
The Ivory is located in the leafy streets of Elsternwick, just 5km from Melbourne CBD, making it a convenient and stand out option when considering venues for an iconic corporate event.
Its location offers ample parking down a quiet suburban street, as well as local public transportation to make getting there even easier for guests. For many companies, the venue is the most important aspect of their event, wanting to ensure that they pick a convenient location that ticks all of the boxes and is the ideal backdrop for what is bound to be an epic corporate function.
Prepare to be amazed at what The Ivory has to offer when it comes to corporate events and end of year celebrations.
Boasting three unique spaces, there is so much to enjoy and take in throughout the event, from indoors to outdoors. Your guests will first take in the Rose Garden Terrace, the outdoor space that is the perfect spot for a cocktail event, an epic photo backdrop, and an ideal spot for everyone to enjoy some fresh air throughout the event.
From there, enter The Ivory into the foyer, which features a fireplace, grand piano and marble bar. This is an extremely popular spot within the venue, often used for cocktail hour, allowing guests to mingle while they enjoy cocktails and canapes before the main event kicks off in the ballroom.
When the corporate event is ready to begin, be wowed by the main ballroom, offering a bud lit ceiling to create ambience, an open floor plan, and a large dance floor.
What makes The Ivory so special is its grand ballroom space that is fit to host up to 300 guests for a seated dining experience, or 400 guests for a more casual stand up event where you can enjoy cocktails, canapes and plenty of mingling. Round tables fill the space, leaving ample room for a dance floor, live band, and any other exciting additions you’d like to add to bring your corporate event to life, leaving you with an open, versatile space to transform.
If you’re looking to host a seminar or educational event, allow the floor plan to be set in a style that makes it simple to engage your guests, incorporate additional elements, whilst still having space for activations and team building exercises. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to shift this space to suit your upcoming business events.
Part of creating an unforgettable corporate event or christmas party, is what you do with the venue and how you style it to suit your theme. For many businesses, it’s crucial that their brand colours, logo and designs are featured strongly throughout the venue to create brand recognition, but many don’t know where to start!
That’s where The Goodsmiths come in. The Ivory’s blank canvas features just beg to be taken to the next level with styling and design, and The Goodsmiths are highly skilled in dreaming up memorable corporate events that not only wow guests, but ensure that they don’t ever forget your brand. Allow the space to be elevated with custom signage that welcomes attendees into the space, plus additional signage that can showcase your slogan such as a decal on the dance floor, or a hanging neon sign. Upgraded furniture such as bars, couches and tables will create a moody and inviting space where guests can relax while they enjoy your event and mingle with each other.
Then, opt to take it a step further with lush floral arrangements crafted by Anatomy of Flowers. Drape florals over the entranceway, line guest tables with pops of colour, and create a luxe media wall out of blooms that will no doubt be plastered all over instagram, all adding to the overall texture and feel of the business event, making it stand out from the crowd.
So, when it comes time to secure an impressive venue to host a good Melbourne Christmas party or corporate event, look no further than The Ivory. With so many features to love, plus plenty of versatile spaces, you and your guests are bound to have the night of your lives.
