Melbourne & Olympic Parks names new function centre

Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) new function and media centre will be called Centrepiece at Melbourne Park.

Centrepiece at Melbourne Park is scheduled for completion in late 2021, with bookings open for mid-February 2022 onwards.

“Melbourne & Olympic Parks is truly one of a kind, with nowhere else in the world offering a series of unique event spaces, all connected to the thriving heart of the city. CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park will join our impressive line-up of venues, and be all-inviting for those looking for an unparalleled event experience,” said Lara Burnes, general manager, premier events & experiences.

“We’re looking forward to early 2022 to see our new venue become home to some of Melbourne’s most eventful and marvellous moments.”

With the capability and flexibility to host both large-scale and smaller, intimate events, construction on the centre is under way, with the precinct’s surrounding grounds already levelled out, representing the third and final stage of its $972 million redevelopment.
