Delegates attending AIME 2019 will have the opportunity to be the first to book the new event space, scheduled to open in February 2022, and also enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of the centre’s unique attractions through an immersive experience – all within a monumental 4m tall cube.
“The concept of our AIME stand was simple – to make our cube the centrepiece of the AIME show floor, much like how our new centre will be the ‘centrepiece’ for business and social events at our world-class precinct,” said Lara Burnes, general manager Premier Events & Experiences, M&OP.
“With our precinct located on the edge of Melbourne’s vibrant CBD, we’ve designed our new centre to capture the magnificent beat of the city, while also having the flexibility to allow events to create their own bespoke identity. With spaces for both grand and intimate events, the new centre’s fundamental purpose is to enhance experiences and leave guests talking about your event long after it’s over. The cube will offer a taste of what this will look like, and we can’t wait to showcase it to the world.”
The new function centre will include 8m-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that will project natural light across a 2000sqm pillarless ballroom and 800qm pre-function area. On two levels, the top floor will feature a 250-seat auditorium, an abundance of breakout rooms and an outdoor terrace with views of the Melbourne city skyline.
Limited bookings are available for the chance to experience the new function and media centre at the M&OP stand. For expressions of interest, please contact Lara Burnes at [email protected].
