Melbourne and Olympic Parks set to showcase new convention centre at AIME 2020
February 12, 2020

Melbourne and Olympic Parks has announced it will showcase its highly anticipated new convention centre CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park at AIME 2020, held in Melbourne from 17th to 19th February.  

Scheduled for completion in late 2021, delegates attending AIME will have the opportunity to take an exclusive look at the new venue by visiting the CENTREPIECE stand on the show floor, embodying the venue’s surrounding native Australian landscape; or by booking a visit to the precinct to see its unparalleled location firsthand.  

Melbourne and Olympic Parks General Manager of Premier Events and Experiences, Lara Burnes advised “with AIME just around the corner we can’t wait to showcase the unique capabilities of CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park and what it means to both national and international planners and their future events.  

“Located only minutes away from Melbourne’s lively city, we’re looking forward to guiding delegates on how we can help enhance their event and, more importantly, create unforgettable marvellous moments.”  

Currently in the third and final stage of its $972 million redevelopment, the new events centre will span three levels and offer indoor and outdoor function spaces that are suitable for any event.  

On top of this, the venue has the flexibility to cater for 10 to 3000 guests – with the main ballroom capable of being transformed into any configuration for an event, seating up to 1400 guests for a gala dinner and up to 3000 for a cocktail party.  

Burnes added “an outstanding culinary experience is always top of mind for any event planner. Our Paddock to Plate philosophy will be represented by a menu that showcases locally sourced and seasonal produce, craft beers, Victorian wines, and exceptional coffee.”
