Press Room > 2018

Delegates from China visited an array of venues that are quintessentially Melbourne and located in close proximity of the city’s vibrant commercial business district.  Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP), home of the Australian Open were featured during the three day visit.

“Our venues can enhance incentive events for delegates, whilst showcasing the best that our beautiful city has to offer. Guests will be delighted and inspired by our unique venues from intimate dinners to large scale conferences, our attention to detail and bespoke offerings, form the perfect bedrock to build connections and memorable moments,” said Lara Burnes, general manager premier events and experiences of Melbourne & Olympic Parks.

M&OP venues include:  Rod Laver Arena (Centre Court) for hosting intimate gatherings within its exciting open spaces; AAMI Park, the site of the nation’s most historical sporting moments; and Margaret Court Arena and Melbourne Arena – both of which present one of the most exciting large-scale event formats for guests from 200 up to 8500 with flexibility for formal dinners, cocktail-style events, galas and conferences.

Looking to 2022, a new state-of-the-art conference centre will join M&OP’s list of arenas, stadiums and venues with capacity to host 3000 guests. The new development promises to elevate M&OP’s capabilities with bookings available from early 2019.
