Futuristic odysseys to decadent fantasies await you
On Tuesday night, over 700 people descended upon Shed 14 in Central Pier Docklands to experience the Future of Events showcase by Atlantic Group and Solution Entertainment.

Performer - The Future of Events


Shed 14, is home to the Atlantic Group's eclectic range of event spaces Maia, Peninsula, Sumac and Sketch on the beautiful Victor Harbour in Docklands, nestled between The Woolshed and the Lady Cutler Showboat. Although it's only June, it's time to start planning your next corporate Christmas and New Year's function with the help of Atlantic Group.

Smoke Bubbles and Candelabra


Each venue was curated into a futuristic world from the revolution of technology (Sketch), to the industrial future (Maia), the lost city of Atlanta (Sumac) and the Underworld (Peninsula).

Whilst the concepts were not 'new', the different worlds showcased the versatility of each space to present new tastes and multisensory experiences.

From outside the venue, we were greeted by a DJ, roving performers, body painted muses, champagne and a range of canapes including salmon ceviche (Sketch). We then entered a industrial future (Maia), fuelled by freshly made expresso martinis and futuristic cuisine, from squid ink tortellini to seaweed globes.



Moving into the lost city of Atlanta (Sumac), we were surrounded by smoke-filled bubbles, lavish candelabra, snow, and a muse playing cello.

Let them eat meat!


However, the highlight of the night was the 'Underworld' or 'Dante's Inferno' (Peninsula). On entry, I was greeted by a topless male waiter with a tray of champagne, and the room was filled with the allure of smoking chicory and a lavish grill and carvery with chimichurri and delectable side dishes.

Maya posed as the 'Queen of the Underworld' launching official proceedings whilst wearing a lavish crown (check out her new album Future Soul).

As speeches concluded a pyrotechnics display revealing an extravaganza of aerial circus artists, a band, a fresh sashimi station, glow in the dark cocktails and lavish desserts - a decadent celebration of life and beyond.
