Home' F and V : WAs Best Functions and Venues 2012 Contents PUBLISHER’S NOTE
elcome to Scoop Functions & Venues annual – the ultimate guide to WA’s leading
professionals dedicated to putting that gloss back into your next function or event.
Now more than ever, it is important to get it right. Nothing will have a greater
impact on your personal or business brand than a successful, or unsuccessful, event.
It reflects not just your creative and organisational skills, but also your level of care, generosity and
respect for people’s time. When you spend a little extra, try a little harder, and get the location, AV,
food, drink, entertainment, service, setting and people-mix spot on, then all is right with the world.
Friends, family, clients, staff and other stakeholders will remember you well. Get it wrong, and the
damage can be irreversible.
Particularly in WA, with a booming economy and shortage of people, juggling family, friends, work
and personal life is a full-time job. Time is a valuable currency in short supply, a commodity to be spent
carefully. It’s not a matter to take lightly when you are planning to spend someone else’s.. .
Likewise, for businesses and individuals, people are realising that a successful event is the most cost-
and time-effective way to catch up, send a message, or simply say thanks. While $50, $100 or even $200
per head may seem like a lot of money when multiplied by your number of guests, it is often ver y little
when the value of the relationship is considered.
So what makes your event one that people will choose over another, one for which they’d happily
forfeit an invaluable quiet night in, one for which they will turn up and say, “I am so glad we came –
what a great night!”
For answers, we invite you to work your way through this fourth edition of Functions and Venues and
review the extraordinary range of function concepts, services and venues available across Perth and WA.
Take inspiration from the World’s Top 21 Events (p30). From the glamorous to the outrageous, see
how the rest of the world parties in style.
On the local scene, you’ll be surprised by the range of quirky function concepts (p42). Hand the
reins over to some of WA’s best event planners and stylists, provide the ‘wow’ factor with show-stopping
audio-visual, staging and production effects, or flick through the catering section in a dream-like state –
it’s never been easier to picture how your special event will come together.
For the perfect location, choose from one of many stunning venues across Perth and WA. Even at
Scoop, where it is our job to know what is happening across this great state, we are amazed at the quality
and variety of options, from little-known bars to major venues, and everything in between.
A special thanks to ever yone that has made this magazine a great success. Over the past four years,
this title has developed into the definitive guide to organising a successful event in Western Australia, an
essential reference for anyone planning – or is even just thinking about planning – a truly unforgettable
event. It is also an invaluable tool for thousands of PR, marketing and event organisers, PAs and executive
assistants who are in charge of making the next event as good as the last.
So from all of us at Scoop, we wish you and your event great success in 2012.
