AIME warm welcome


THE hosted buyers and media welcome event dazzled attendees last night at The Vista, in Margaret Court Arena at Melbourne Olympic Park.

Guests were first led through the revamped Margaret Court Arena, which can be transforme­d into an open air event in less than four minutes by opening the roof, before heading outside to an event overlookin­g the Yarra River.

Karen Bolinger, Melbourne Convention Bureau ceo filled in guests on what makes the city “the events capital of Australia, and we think of Asia-Pacific.”

“It’s not only about major events, for us it’s also about business events and we feel that we’re the complete destinatio­n to host them. We have many unique venues in this city.”

The key to Melbourne “setting the pace” in the events space is not just the infrastruc­ture, but the “team Melbourne” approach.

“We pride ourselves in being able to tailor an event and make it for you a once in a lifetime experience,” Bolinger said.
