Sydney venue operator The Venues Collection has launched a new campaign offering six new deals for organisers hosting events at two of its venues â€“ harbourside dining precinct Campbellâ€™s Stores at The Rocks; and contemporary venue 12-Micron in Barangaroo.
The updated pricing model is available for new bookings for events held before August 30, 2020, with breakfast, lunch and dinner costing between A$40 (US$26) and A$75 per pax respectively. There is also the option of a day conference or cocktail reception, both priced at A$70 per pax.
One highlight among the deals offered is a four-hour, seven-course degustation experience in 12-Micron’s dining room, located on the western end of Sydney Harbour.
Event organisers keen on the dishes being paired with wine will be charged A$220 per pax; while food alone will cost A$140 per pax. Menu items include Paroo Kangaroo tartare with pickled egg yolk puree and sweet potato crisps, pan-seared Albhoros scallops, and Tajima Wagyu striploin with fondant potato.
Taking into account the diverse palates of attendees, a vegan degustation menu featuring dishes such as a portobello tartare with sweet potato puree, as well as a puffed amaranth, raspberry, coconut and dark chocolate mousse, can also be ordered.
Philip Beauchamp, director, The Venues Collection, said the purpose of the campaign was to encourage organisers to continue holding events amid Covid-19, while following the governmentâ€™s health and safety protocols.
For example, the venue operator has put in place more stringent sanitation measures at its venues, such as requesting for additional servicing from contracted cleaners.
Additionally, event organisers concerned with the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 are being assured that their deposits will not be forfeited if their event has to postponed to later date in 2020.
