Overview

Opened in February 2016, the Alere Function Centre is a state-of-the-art function facility located in the heart of the Flinders University’s redeveloped Plaza and Student Hub.

The Alere Function Centre partnered with the award-winning Blanco Food & Events Team and will focus on fresh and local produce from Adelaide’s southern regions, bringing a polished, professional and modern-edge to the University’s gastronomic offerings.

The Hub’s new facilities are world-class, with stunning panoramic ocean views across a natural campus with uniquely adaptable spaces, suited for hosting private weddings, corporate dinners, workshops, training sessions, conferences, seminars and networking events. All function areas have natural lighting with blackout curtains and a break-out area for catering and welcome drinks.
Room hire charges include in-house audio visual equipment with furniture set to standard floor plans and basic cleaning. Novatech is the preferred equipment hire supplier and their technical services are one of Australia’s leading providers of entertainment and event technologies.

Managed by Blanco Food & Events, the professional service and depth of experience is reflected in the multiple awards including ‘The Best Achievement in Catering’ at the 2011 Australian Event Awards, ‘Best Venue Caterer South Australia 2010, 2011, 2013’ and Caterer of the Year 2013 and 2015.
