We can also run individual corporate and social events in Melbourne such as packages to the Melbourne Spring Carnival races at Flemington.
Our corporate membership packages have been introduced at the request of clients to provide organisations the opportunity to individually tailor events and offer benefits of intra company and external social networking events at a very competitive rate. Corporate membership packages have been designed in levels taking account the number of staff in each package. All packages include:
- Access to all the great Melbourne Social Club events at membership prices

- Networking opportunity with people outside your company
Some of our packages include a great range of specific benefits:
- Exclusive tailored Melbourne events
- Recognition and outline of services in our Melbourne Social Club newsletter
- Recognition of corporate membership on our website
- Opportunities to be an exclusive partner to co-host Melbourne events

We are happy to discuss how a corporate membership package can be customised for your needs. It is possible to have a combination of individually tailored packages to suit your requirements for specific teams or departments within a company if required.
Our Melbourne events can be used reward staff and clients or simply as a team building exercise. An example of events used for this purpose are our all inclusive Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival Cruises on Derby Day, Melbourne Cup and Oaks Day. We have arranged with many companies transfers to Flemington races for the Melbourne Spring Carnival by coach or boat with breakfast included or fully catered packages.
"A great time was had by all. All of our clients are wanting to come back next year and through their positive feedback we have more people interested. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, the dancing on the way back was great fun and the weather turned on a perfect day for us. Thanks again for a very memorable day, for all the right reasons."
