The internationally-renowned arenas at Melbourne & Olympic Parks are unlike any other event space in Melbourne, offering a dynamic and unique setting for large-scale conferences, cocktail parties and dinners.

Margaret Court Arena

Fresh from a multi-million dollar upgrade, Margaret Court Arena (MCA) is the newest addition to Melbourne’s catalogue of corporate event spaces. Expansive floor space and ceiling height provides the flexibility to install vast LED walls for presentations and large scale entertainment options, with the option to develop an intimate setting for dinners and cocktail parties.

MCA is a boutique arena that is perfectly placed to accommodate unique event concepts. It is protected from the elements by a visually-stunning pleated roof that, on clear nights, has the ability to retract and offer guests a memorable experience under the stars.

MCA is a modern and vibrant event space, with the flexibility to accommodate a range of event types. Be ahead of the curve and host your next event at Margaret Court Arena.

Hisense Arena

Hisense Arena – Melbourne’s home to indoor sports – is a highly flexible event space that has played host to some of Melbourne’s most prestigious entertainment, concert and sporting events.

An inbuilt cycling velodrome, located beneath the arena seating, can be exposed for corporate events. In some settings, this feature could provide a unique backdrop for aerial performers at a dinner or cocktail event. For other event types, the exposed velodrome could be the perfect location to project a prominent company logo.

  • 2000 guests seated for a premium dinner on the floor of the arena.
  • 2500 guests networking at your cocktail event.
  • 8500 guests attending your next conference.

The concourse and level one of Hisense Arena can accommodate multiple event spaces, adding the option of hosting a dynamic event that transforms over time. Conferences can be combined with exhibitions and break out spaces, with a post-conference dinner set-up within a matter of hours.

The scale and flexibility of the Hisense Arena means that your event is not limited by your venue or guest numbers, only the extent of your imagination.
