Karstens Melbourne is one of the most impressive executive conference and meeting spaces in Australia. Providing five floors of privacy, luxury and advanced technology, Karstens Melbourne offers a unique and elegant environment.

Karstens Melbourne — the Head Office for Karstens in Australia and New Zealand — closes the gap between internal meeting rooms and hotel conference venues, by providing a bespoke and professional service and space. Unlike the standard “cookie-cutter” approach out there in the market, we go above and beyond to ensure that our service and space is specifically tailored to your needs, ensuring 100% satisfaction for each and every booking. Our singular focus has earned us the loyalty of many of the most discerning corporations, who entrust us to seamlessly deliver their most critical events. Karstens is the preferred venue for a large number of top 200 ASX-listed companies and many small to medium-sized businesses, law firms and associations.

At Karstens, people are our greatest strength and our point of difference. We’re proud to operate with a select roster of consummate professionals who go beyond to deliver excellence. Our team is inspired to deliver seamless events and is empowered to anticipate your needs and quickly react should any aspect of your time with us fall short of perfection.

Opened in October 2006, Karstens Melbourne is located at 123 Queen Street, Melbourne and provides a calm and professional atmosphere that allow groups — both large and small — to imprint their brand and culture for the duration of their conference, meeting or event, leading to increased focus and reduced overall costs.
