How Melbourne event businesses have responded to a second lockdown


Caterers, venues and suppliers are rising to the challenge yet again.

In saddening news for the Melbourne events sector and all Victorians, parts of the state returned to lockdown last week following a second outbreak of COVID-19.

While it’s a devastating time for an industry that was beginning to restart, the event sector has stepped up to the challenge yet again, with many businesses re-adapting to the new restrictions.

Melbourne catering supplier Peter Rowland will continue to offer home delivery for Melbourne residents during lockdown, including warming winter meals, delicious desserts and even high tea hampers.

For those craving a glimpse of Melbourne streets, Melbourne Convention Bureau has partnered with Localing Tours to create a Melbourne City Experiences virtual tour.

The Bureau also recently launched a new ‘Delegate Destination Site’ designed to help planners promote Melbourne and Victoria to delegates attending future meetings.

Elizabeth Andrews Catering has also taken to social media to share the news that their home delivery service will continue throughout lockdown, while the Arts Centre Melbourne is sharing a range of performances and mini documentaries online while its doors are closed.

Fed Square Melbourne will deliver exhibitions, events and activities to the comfort of your own home through its Virtual Square initiative.

The venue is also continuing to host virtual events, including the upcoming industry conference MEA Evolve: Renovated this week.
