Business Events & Training

Get involved in Council business events

Event Sponsorship

Council hosts three annual business events including the luncheon in March, Awards in June and breakfast in November.  Council has built a reputation as presenting excellent opportunities for businesses to network, expand client bases, learn more about the local business environment and to hear from quality guest speakers.  Each event attracts a large audience from the local business community including key stakeholders from across Melbourne.

Partner with the City of Melton by becoming a sponsor and enjoy brand exposure to one of the fastest growing municipalities in the country.  With a number of sponsorship packages available, we endeavour to work with you and your budget to achieve an integrated and effective sponsorship campaign.

Please register your interest in becoming a sponsor for our business events by contacting our Engagement and Advocacy Department on 9747 7200 or email
