AEG Ogden already has a strong presence in Western Australia through the management of the Perth Theatre Trust Venues, which includes His Majesty's Theatre, Perth Concert Hall and the new State Theatre Centre.

AEG Ogden Executive Chairman Harvey Lister said he was excited that they had been appointed to run Australia's newest arena, adding "we look forward to hitting the ground running by securing a naming rights sponsor and selling the corporate suites while negotiating with promoters from around the world to make sure the Perth Arena opens with a bang."
