Welcome to Mercury Principle Events

Derby Day Marquee packages specialists

Mercury Principle Events specialises in providing Corporate Hospitality for Melbourne’s major sporting and cultural events. Founded in 1994 by Managing Director Brian Phillips, the company has worked hard to forge strong working relationships with Melbourne’s prominent events and venues to ensure we always deliver our clients the best possible experience. Our facilities are always located in best positions available and catering is of the highest standards. We provide our clients with Derby Day Marquee packages, Melbourne Cup Marquee packages, Oaks Day Marquee packages and Stakes Day Marquee packages.

While horse racing is a significant part of our business we also provide a wide range of facilities at other events including AFL, Golf, Motor Racing, Rugby Union & League, Cricket and most other major events.

In addition to major sporting events we also organise packages at the theatre, opera and concerts, so if your clients prefer the Rolling Stones to the Cup Carnival we can assist in these areas as well.

We pride ourselves on the number of clients we have been providing our services to on an ongoing basis and the relationships we have developed with these companies over many years. This ensures we understand our clients’ needs in corporate entertaining and their expectations of the experience.

We offer a personalised service for each client and our commitment to your company is that we will work with you to develop a strategy to ensure your corporate entertaining dollar achieves the best possible return and your relationships with your clients are developed and consolidated. We aim to make your Derby Day Marquee packages a great success, ensuring your clients have a memorable day.
