Awards & Recognitions

Without the support of our clients, couples, and our teams’ dedication and passion for their job, Metropolis Events would not have received the awards & recognitions whilst being recognized as Melbourne’s premium events venue. 

We thank those who have shown us tremendous support and continue supporting us in everything we do. Our focus will always be on delivering outstanding experiences; however, we are proud to have been recognized by some premium organizations within the events industry and beyond.

The awards we received highlight our inventive spirit and drive whilst demonstrating our commitment to actively contributing to our industry.
