HOW WOMEN ARE TRANSFORMING THE EVENTS INDUSTRY

INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY 2024

This International Women’s Day, we inspire inclusion, diversity and empowerment through 2024 and beyond. International Women’s Day is a global reminder of women’s social, cultural, economic and political achievements.

In 2024, the official IWD campaign is inspired by INCLUSION across all aspects of society. The United Nations ‘Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress‘ is centred around gender equality and women’s well-being globally, focusing on ending poverty, investing in women, shifting to a green economy, and supporting feminist change makers.

When women are given equal opportunities to earn, learn and lead – entire communities thrive. 

The entertainment industry has long struggled with inequality, as widely recognised. At Metropolis Events, we take immense pride in our commitment to inclusivity, particularly in empowering women. We believe in providing equal opportunities for professional growth and development, regardless of gender, and this is recognised as many of our planning, sales, operations, and kitchen team members are women. We deeply value their contributions to the events space. By fostering a culture of inclusivity and empowerment, we aim to harness the full potential of our diverse workforce and drive innovation and success. Our events would not thrive the way they do without our incredible team!

As we continue to celebrate the achievements within our team, we also extend our appreciation to the many female-run businesses and suppliers who grace our venue each day. 

The entrepreneurial dedication shows through their work and our events.

Let’s shine a spotlight on some of our most admired female creatives below.

After twenty years of providing decor hire and styling to events and premium venues across Melbourne, the Decor It Studio unveils its fresh appearance. With a new team bringing BIG VIBES and friendly and approachable service, the team is dedicated to ensuring a memorable experience. Their style is bold, a little spicy, and expressive. The team of event specialists sources inspiration, concept, and style for entire soirees from start to finish while liaising with other suppliers within the industry to complete their clients’ chosen desired aesthetic.

With a decade of experience under her belt, Studio Danielle, also known as Dani, has dedicated herself to curating and enhancing meaningful art for couples saying “I do.” As mentioned on her website, she is a hopeless romantic with a keen eye for capturing the finer details, and it’s obvious she pours her passion into her work! Through her contemporary and editorial approach, clients are left speechless by images that will stand the test of time. 

Evangeline Victoria Music, a classically trained graduate from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, takes the spotlight within the entertainment realm. She seamlessly blends improvisation across diverse genres, showcasing a remarkable repertoire spanning from pop to rock, classical to folk, contemporary jazz to RnB and MORE! She deeply appreciates the weddings and event space and profoundly connects to how music brings people together.
