 Function Venues Brisbane FAQs

How far in advance should I book a Brisbane function venue?

Whether you are planning a smaller private event or an extravagant gala dinner, you should enquire at least 3 months before the event date as a good rule of thumb.

What should I check for when choosing the perfect function venue in Brisbane?

Before enquiring with Accor's events team, prepare a list of essentials for your event. This way, Accor's team can recommend meeting and function spaces best suited to your needs. You can complete our online enquiry form to inquire about any Accor Brisbane Venues.
