InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto

Thomas Fallon, William Pitt and Richard Speight are a series of smaller boardrooms located on the dedicated conference floor.

Accommodating for groups of eight, the historically-named Thomas Fallon and Richard Speight boardrooms offer a comfortable, secluded environment for business meetings with light refreshments and no distractions.

The William Pitt boardroom has a capacity for 12 boardroom style or up to 20 on banquet rounds.

These three rooms also feature a private pre-function area which provides a quiet haven away from the hotel’s main atrium.

Running along the entire length of the Rialto wing, the Laneway Rooms are impressively appointed. The stripped back brick walls with views to outside graffiti by The Blender Studios’ street artists, make the events space feel uniquely Melbourne.

We can seat up to 370 guests theatre style, or if your group is smaller or requires secluded individual spaces, we offer a variety of flexible layouts.

Trade & Stock and Wool & Wheat Rooms

Running along the length of the Winfield Wing, the rooms can be used as either two rooms, or four. Drop down blinds provide privacy and convenience, while the catering stations allow for refreshments throughout the day.
