INTERVIEW // SHOWTIME + CARGO HALL

Wed 02 Nov | INTERVIEW

 Who/what is Showtime Events Centre and Cargo Hall, and what is your role/s within the company?

Bradley Dabbs

Showtime Events Centre and Cargo Hall are two of Melbourne’s most exclusive waterfront event spaces. Both offer an industrial style feel and great scope for a large range of functions from corporate occasions to special events and weddings. As General Manager of these amazing venues, I love to come to work every day and create extraordinary events.

Which three words best describes you?

1. Energetic

2. Passionate

3. Creative

Tell us a little about one of your most memorable projects you’ve worked on

I mostly enjoy working on the larger special events where we close the precinct down and incorporate all the surrounding restaurants and cater for events up to 5,000 people. This is where we really get creative, designing different zones and an interactive experience.

What are your favourite trends of the moment?  (Interior / food / event / wedding…)

I still love marble and copper. Can’t get enough of interactive food stations also!

What colour palette are you loving?

Teal, it works so well with pops of white and charcoal for a fresh and modern touch to any event.

What can’t you get enough of right now?

Melbourne in general; all the amazing activities and activations that our city puts on during winter to still get us out of the house! The Night Markets, Snowing in South Wharf and Federation Square Ice Rink, all make winter a bit more bearable!

Who or what inspires you? Where do you look for inspiration? 

My team are who I draw most of my inspiration from! I’m lucky enough to have an office full of very creative event producers and of course always checking out Dann Events mood boards help!

Which Dann Event Hire piece is your favourite?

It changes every week- but this week I love the Chic Linear Coffee Table, it really suits the venue.

If you were a piece of furniture which would you be? Why?

Probably a bar, that’s where most of the fun happens!
