the Cliftons story

Creating Remarkable Experiences Since 1997

One fine day in 1997, a spare Sydney office was converted to computer training rooms, and Cliftons was born. It was a time when the technology revolution was only just getting underway. 

With businesses eager to catch the technology wave, there was a huge appetite to upskill employees in computer skills and new software. But despite the demand, there was a noticeable lack of facilities in which to hold such training. 

You can see where this is going, right? 

​Within just five years, Cliftons opened eight venues across Australia and New Zealand and Asia. With a Singapore venue and Hong Kong-based global event service, we could now call ourselves truly global. ​

From humble beginnings, we had quickly realised this was about more than just training. For our clients, having an international venue network facilitated entry to markets that were never previously easily accessible. 

While continuing to offer state-of-the-art computer rooms, we branched into meeting, conference and business event space… with exceptional trimmings. Today, Cliftons draws on over two decades of business event delivery experience for a diverse portfolio of clients. 

We continue to evolve with our clients’ needs, expanding to offer flexible workplace, building activation and extraordinary new services. We’re excited about the future of space. And we’re even more excited about the next chapter of creating remarkable experiences for you.

What our clients say

"I'd like to extend a special thanks to the venue staff, who helped me adjust our room setup and make some tweaks during the event - this was really well received by our presenters. They said this was the best service they'd seen of all the cities where we've been running our events."
(Leaders Boot Camp)
"Cliftons enables us to focus on the things we do best (development of world class MBA programs), whilst leaving the complicated operational delivery issues to them. It’s refreshing to find a company which sees you as a partner, not a number."

"If you are thinking of holding an event where everything is taken care of, even the tiniest detail, then consider talking to the team at Cliftons. From helping out with the booking to setup on the day, nothing was left to fate. The team were the nicest and most helpful."
