Fortis Green at the Races

Fortis Green Shoeshine returned to Flemington for the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival offering free shoeshines within two exclusive venues onsite. Organised by The Atlantic Group, our two new classic shoeshine chairs featured in The Rose Room and the Makybe Diva Marquee across all four days of the Spring Racing Carnival including Derby Day, Melbourne Cup, Oaks and Stakes Day. 

Both venues offer world class hospitality with breathtaking views of the racecourse. Positioned in front of The Winning Post,  both The Rose Room and Makybe Diva marquee offered guests a stylish environment perfectly suited to our luxury shoeshine service.

Our shoeshine staff gave the racegoers a run for their money in the best dressed stakes and the popularity of our service was unprecedented. 

Another successful Cup Week. See you next year Flemington!

Fortis Green X Optus 'Yes' forum

On Wednesday 1st November Fortis Green provided shoe shining services on the Melbourne leg of the Optus 'Yes' Forum - an event for approximately 150 guests at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Hosted by Optus, this series of national presentations allowed attendees to gain insights from business leaders and discover the latest in IT solutions. The keynote speaker was Steve Sammartino, one of Australia's most respected futurists and business technologists.

The Fortis Green shoeshine team were on hand with our twin shoeshine chairs providing complimentary shines between presentations. Most guests took advantage of our shoe shining activation with well over 60% of the total attendees utilising our luxury service.

Having our two identical shoeshine chairs working side by side allowed for our staff to shine the footwear of a larger number of patrons within the relatively short times between presentations as well as some great networking opportunities with business cards being swapped from chair to chair during the shines.
