Seminar Room

Just a few steps up from the Foyer, the Seminar Room has a lovely atmosphere with its high ceiling and natural light. The Seminar Room is a popular venue for meetings, luncheons, small dinners and cocktail parties - and is a great conference breakout room.


With its wall mounted 50 inch plasma screen and custom made table, the Boardroom is ideal for those smaller meetings or presentations. From two people to twenty people the Boardroom provides a quiet and private space to make all those important decisions.

Elwood Room

Fully air conditioned and attractively presented, the Elwood Room is ideal for large meetings, exhibitions trade shows, gala dinners, dances and all social occasions. With its portable staging and theatre lighting this room is perfect for that dramatic impression to any meeting or event. A 47 inch LCD screen at the entrance to the Elwood Room displays event signage and branding. Flat floor loading and vehicular access is available from the loading dock.

Gala Dinner

A gala dinner is a special occasion that should be celebrated in style. At Central Energy Trust Arena and the Conference & Function Centre we have the expertise onsite to deliver a professional and polished dinner or cocktail function. By day our venues provide professional and purpose-built meeting rooms and sporting facilities, by night the same rooms can be transformed to a themed gala dinner, cocktail party or awards ceremony.

At Central Energy Trust Arena, Fly Palmy Arena (Arena 2) and the B&M Centre are popular choices for gala dinners, with the Fly Palmy Arena corporate lounges and the J.A. Russell Supplies Lounge being popular cocktail function options. At the Conference & Function Centre the Elwood Room and Conference Room provide plentiful space for a gala dinner, while The Gallery is a popular choice for a cocktail function.
