M&OP REVEALS STAGE THREE
MELBOURNE & Olympic Parks (M&OP) will embark on stage three of its $1 billion redevelopment in early 2019, following the completion of stage one in 2014 and close completion of stage two.
The stage three redevelopment will feature a new Function and Media Centre with the capacity to host 3,000 guests and is scheduled for opening in 2022.
Other developments include a production kitchen and central logistics hub, a 5,000-seat show court arena and the completion of the central terrace that will link to the Rod Laver Arena.
“Few venues in Australia can connect guests as directly, and as intimately with the city as we can,” said M&OP Premier Events & Experiences General Manager Lara Burnes.
“Equally, not many could host the span of extravagant sit-down galas,” she said, or an “iconic dinner under the stars in our retractable roofed Margaret Court Arena”.
“We work to cater to bespoke experiences and are inspired by delivering successful events that create an iconic and memorable experience for our clients,” she said.
M&OP venues include: Rod Laver Arena; AAMI Park, which offers an array of spaces catering for events from 10 to 1,000 guests; Margaret Court Arena and Melbourne Arena, both catering for 200 to 8,500 guests with flexibility for formal dinners, cocktail-style events, galas and conferences.
