It is a very flexible space that can accommodate huge weight loading on the floor and also in the ceiling. We have luxurious floor to ceiling curtains that can transform the space for a large awards evening or school ball. As proven many times, there is not an event or function that cannot be accommodated!

The Arena can seat up to 5000 in a convention setting or seat up to 3,000 for dinner. For an expo or trade show up to 200 stands can be accommodated with ample corridors and access points.

There are convenient, undercover loading facilities on the ground level so moving equipment in and out of the main arena is extremely efficient, saving our clients both time and money!
