Everybody who works here is so friendly and supportive. The team really cares about how you are and want to invest time in improving my skills.

The work culture makes it a WOW for me. Everyone gets treated equally regardless of their position and that really sets the standard for a successful business.

Manoj, Event Host

I love how the values are implemented across the venues. In previous roles, the values have been nothing more than a picture on the wall. Here at MEG, the values provide a platform to work from, to make decisions from, and therefore empower staff.

You’ve got good taste

Catering’s our jam and when it comes to food, we don’t mess around. It’s not over-complicated or intimidating – we’re the sweet spot where careful abundance and quality ingredients meets simplicity. In short, nobody’s going home hungry.

Family is at the core of everything we do and our food philosophy is no exception.

Our aim is for you and your guests to feel like you’ve been welcomed into our home – experiencing the best in beautifully simple flavours and presented in a way that helps you connect with the people around you.

Every important moment should always be around a table full of incredible food – with all the colours, textures and tastes you’d expect from your favourite home-cooked meal.

We’re really into celebrating and elevating food while caring for the environment. With a particular focus on fresh, seasonal and local produce, we do our best to lower the km’s of our food.

You’ve got good taste and we’re here for it.

We also believe that every milestone should always be in the company of your closest bunch, with a satisfying drink in hand to mark the occasion.

Here at Melbourne Event Group, we believe in inspiring your senses, that’s why we’ve searched far and wide to source an all-encompassing premium beverage lineup. Consisting of legendary local, and impeccable international sourced wines, beers and cocktails, all designed to enhance your experience/the flavours of our food.
