Already drawing a host of national and international conventions to the city, this stunning facility is also set up to host local events and meetings. It contains a succession of beautiful and flexible spaces, including 24 meeting rooms with capacity from 20-2000 people.
The world-class venue has been carefully designed and purpose-built to meet endless event requirements.
As Australasia’s newest international standard convention centre, this unique building also includes the latest technology, allowing for hybrid and fully virtual meetings.
The backing of ASM Global, the world’s leading venue management company with more than 325 venues, means the local talent and experience on the ground has access to the latest in event management knowledge from around the globe.
