Western Australian Sport and Recreation Minister Terry Waldron said AEG Ogden were global leaders in sport and entertainment and the agreement would ensure high quality operational and facilities management of Perth Arena.

Minister Waldron stated "it is an important milestone to sign this contract so AEG Ogden can get on with planning entertainment, staffing and management of Perth Arena.

"The company is a world-class venue operator with the skills and networks to attract top national and international events to Perth's new world-class venue."

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."
