Flood Impact Update on AEG Ogden Managed Venues

Flood Impact Update on AEG Ogden Managed Venues
January 12, 2011

AEG Ogden have issued a statement detailing the impact of the current floods on scheduled activities at its three managed venues in Brisbane venues.

AEG Ogden Executive Director, Rod Pilbeam said two of the venues, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and Suncorp Stadium were flood affected while the other, the Brisbane Entertainment Centre was not impacted.

Pilbeam issued the following venue updates.

Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
"The Centre is closed due to some flooding into lower storage and car parking levels, and power to this area of South Bank has been cut. The Centre will not be open until at least Friday with further advice to be provided as the situation develops.
"The only scheduled event at the venue is the Lifeline Book Show which was to be held this weekend but which has been rescheduled to next weekend."

Suncorp Stadium (pictured)
"The field of play is underwater, and as a result, Sunday's Hyundai A League match between the Brisbane Roar and Wellington Phoenix will be played elsewhere. Football Federation Australia will make an announcement on the rescheduling of this game within the next 24 hours."

Brisbane Entertainment Centre
"Fortunately the Entertainment Centre is not affected by the current weather situation. In order to minimise the requirement for travel, the Queensland Volleyball Pirates Competition which was scheduled for tomorrow, will recommence instead on Friday."

Pilbeam added that "thankfully, our understanding at this time is that none of our staff teams has been personally impacted by flood incursion."
