Home' F and V : Functions and Venues 2014 Contents EDITOR’S NOTE
othing says more about your character, your level of care, sense of fun,
generosity, creativity and competency – or have as much impact on your
personal and business brand – than how you host an event.
Skimp on food and entertainment and you’re the ‘tight guy’. Bumble the
speeches and you’re the ‘obtuse guy’. In fact, get one thing wrong and odds are that’s
what your guests will be talking about.
However, turn on the fine food and quality drinks, set the scene with a few special
effects, unexpected entertainment and pithy but engaging speeches, and ‘you the man’.
Regardless if you’re arranging a team-building corporate event, a lavish wedding, or
an intimate birthday celebration, party planning is not everyone’s cup of tea (or glass of
bubbles). This is where enlisting the services of a professional event planner can save the
day. Consider them your ‘guardian angel of arranging’.
From spectacular venues, each with their own unique point of difference, to superb
caterers ready to tickle your tastebuds, Scoop Functions & Venues has your back.
Perth has seen an explosion of new bars and venues emerge over the past year and this
poses yet another important question for the function planner. Do you go with the well-
respected, established venue or do you try something different at one of the new joints?
It really comes down to the type of function you’re planning, who your guests are, and
what sort of memories you want them to leave with. Good ones, we hope!
However you envisage you’re shindig to pan out, there’s one thing that should never be
overlooked – quality.
Spend your budget wisely and remember what you personally look forward to most
at functions and events. These are the very things your guests will also remember, and
it’s up to you to bring a smile to their faces. That’s why caterers and professional services
are in such high demand, especially with corporate events often competing for the who’s
who in Perth. When it comes to annual events, there are some regarded as a great night
out while others are viewed as a chore. So, what’ll it be? Remember, just like a restaurant
is only as good as its last meal, you are only as good as your last show.
What’s exciting about the WA events scene is the range of new and established
venues and event operators that make anything possible. More venues are opening up
for f unctions and events, particularly in the CBD, and regional WA hosted some hugely
impressive events this past year. This edition of Scoop Functions & Venues includes a
snapshot of the very best, from tried and tested household names to exciting venues
We hope you enjoy this stunning guide, and invite you to visit our online Functions &
