Private & industry networking events for Melbourne

Private dining or stakeholder, industry peers and delegate entertainment evenings.

You step into a softly lit warehouse in Melbourne’s hidden streets, as you enter you are handed a Starward cocktail and begin to settle into the evening. Your peers arrive and the room warms with a quiet laughter and curious musings. After half an hour of mingling you are ushered to your seats where question cards await you. The music softens and the hum of conversation begins.


This is the world of Convo. It only exists for a few nights a year, and this time it’s appeared just for you.


This evening has been designed for your community, you’ve brought together minds to discuss topics you don’t often get the chance to. Your industry is changing fast, you’ve known people from afar for many years and you’re intrigued by their thoughts, but tonight is the night that you have all come together finally for a meeting of minds to connect, share, laugh and finally be still.

For a moment you are able to see into someone’s mind and discover the person beyond their professional persona. At the end of the night you lean back and relax into your chair, your stomach is full, mind illuminated, and a warm smile comes across your face. You’ve gathered everyone to enjoy life’s most important things. Food, friends and good chat.
