Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


Partner News: Seamless Synergy - CENTREPIECE, MCG Events, and Pullman Melbourne Unveil the Ultimate Conference Experience

The event saw 300 people from sports stadiums, arenas, convention centres and signature venues converge for a 3-day conference, held exclusively within Melbourne’s iconic sports and entertainment precinct to celebrate their 30th year.

The new partnership between CENTREPIECE, MCG Events and the Pullman Melbourne on The Park, helped create a “quintessentially Melbourne” experience for all in attendance. The partnership provided guests with a place to “Meet, Celebrate and Stay” within short distance of one another.

And it did not disappoint, with the VMA Chief Executive Michael Brierly saying, “With a record number of attendees at this year’s Congress to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we were all afforded the opportunity to connect with our peers, share ideas with the industry, and learn from a great mix of educational sessions. The feedback from the food and beverage offering from across the three days was exceptional and one of the highlights of the event. Everyone from across both venues should be immensely proud of what they delivered.”

The overall experience the event created set a high standard, including sessions and speakers at CENTREPIECE, a VIP dinner held at the Committee Room at the MCG (a space usually reserved for members), and over 500 room nights booked by delegates at Pullman Melbourne on the Park overlooking the iconic ground and cityscape.

At the VIP dinner, a menu specially curated by famed Melbourne chef Guy Grossi was the icing on the cake, with guests able to “look out over the MCG and experience incredible, quintessential cuisine and really connect”.

And if you’re looking for somewhere for guests at your next event to meet, stay and celebrate, Melbourne’s sports and entertainment precinct can provide an exceptional experience for all. Reach out today to start planning your dream event.
