Supremely flexible, Centrepiece is your complete conference centre surrounded by open green spaces and a flood of natural light through the expansive windows and atrium skylight.

Adjacent to Garden Square will sit a public café and restaurant. This space is available to be hired exclusively for events or is the perfect addition for social events hosted in conjunction with your conference. A state-of-the-art production kitchen located on level one will be delivered with the latest technology to support the culinary teams’ Paddock to Plate philosophy and focus on sustainability.
Adjacent to Rod Laver Arena and the new Tennis Show Court, is the Main Ballroom and Pre-Function space. The Ballroom is a versatile space that is complemented by an outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views of the Melbourne CBD, connecting you to the gardens outside. This 2,000 sqm space is divisible by 3, equally in half and more, encouraging flexibility. Perfect for conferences from 200 to 1000 guests, a gala dinner of 1400 guests or a cocktail party for 3,000 guests. Centrepiece is linked to a large outdoor piazza that can be used for activations, and to Tennis HQ, which boasts more than 1,000sqm of break out spaces with dedicated café that will enhance your event.
This space houses breakout rooms for your event in the ballroom or is the perfect space for smaller conferences. Designed for the international media for the Australian Open, there are 10 studios that can seat between 10-100 guests, an auditorium for 250 guests and additional 5 meeting rooms. Like level two, this level connects into Tennis HQ’s level three boardrooms and foyer space. Three outdoor terraces with spectacular views of the skyline and the precinct complete this level.
