Tabcorp Birdcage Marquee

It was a fantastic day, the marquee was excellent and Tabcorp were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

Event Brief

To design and activate a marquee within the coveted Flemington Birdcage at the prestigious Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington that would outshine the rest.

Event Planet created a French provincial coach house themed marquee which embodied sophistication, elegance and beauty at the prestigious Emirates Melbourne Cup week.

It rivaled its neighbors and boasted features such as open bay and arched windows, chesterfield seating, marble fireplaces, timber floors, orb chandeliers, ornate detail, abundant pink peonies and lime basil and mandarin fragrances – an entire delight to all the senses.

Guests from around Australia and abroad sipped Mumm Champagne and Pimm’s cocktails whilst seated at open windows which were elevated above the track to watch all the festivities and horses gallop past during the race that stops a nation.
