In the incentive space, Showtime Event Group has also compiled a list of experiences to help guests ‘live like a Melbournian’ by combining food, drink and entertainment. These experiences include: Progressive Dining, The Longest Lunch, Dining Under the Stars, Step Back in Time at the Old Melbourne Gaol, Private Shopping Experiences, Whisky Tours, Laneways of Melbourne, Gala Dinners, Masters of Wine, Down on the Beach and Outdoor Cinema.
In 2019, Showtime Event Group will undergo renovations to Showtime Event Centre, turning the space from one room, to a three-level venue with the capacity for 1200 people.
