Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) â€“ home of the Australian Open Tennis Grand Slam Tournament â€“ will welcome a new function centre come 2022.
The new function space will include eight-metre-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, projecting natural light across a 2,000m2 pillarless ballroom and 800m2 pre-function area. There will be two levels, and the upper floor will feature a 250-seat auditorium, an abundance of breakout rooms and an outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views of the Melbourne city skyline.
Event bookings are now open for 2022, and construction is well underway on the A$972 million (US$692 million) redevelopment.
Located on the south-eastern edge of Melbourneâ€™s CBD, the design of M&OPâ€™s new centre will pay homage to the classic Australian landscape, whereas its F&B offerings are set to include award-winning Victorian wines and locally sourced seasonal produce.
