Venue Reviews

Why Marvel Stadium for your next meeting or event?

Situated in the CBD, Marvel Stadium's (formerly Etihad Stadium) multi-use design provides a variety of areas for all your function requirements. Marvel Stadium has 15 function rooms which can be adapted to create 21 individual breakout rooms. With 20,000sqm of arena surrounded by a 50,000 seating bowl, Marvel Stadium offers the opportunity to host large scale events in a setting unlike any other venue in the country.

So many unique features on offer... Imagine what it would be like to be playing in front of a crowd of 50,000 spectators. Allow your guests to experience this feeling first hand by hosting pre-dinner drinks on the boundary line. Or, take a behind the scenes tour to the Stadium's inner sanctum for all your sporting and entertainment questions to be answered. While the Scoreboard is ideal for product launches, sponsors' logos or an impressive presentation with a difference.

Whether it be a sit down breakfast presentation for 50 conference delegates, gourmet BBQ on the Victory Promenade for 300, inside for up to 1,200, or a gala for several thousand guests on the arena, there is a menu and a space to suit all occasions at Marvel Stadium.

Easily accessible, the 2,500 space secure car park operates 24 hours, 7 days a week with direct undercover access to the venue. A pedestrian bridge connects the stadium to Southern Cross Station, offering numerous links to train, tram and bus services (including Skybus airport shuttles every 15 minutes).

Venue Reviews

REVIEW: Food fantastic, service 2nd to none...highly recommend & would use again!

"Our 2 day staff workshop and cocktail reception went really well at Etihad. Our room layout requirements were more specific than most, and on arrival the room was set out exactly as we envisaged, only the curtains needed to be opened.

The food was fantastic, the customer service was second to none and special mention to the staff on the day who were excellent: Raj, Dean and Ishara! The venue was very accommodating with our last minute requests and were quick to act on anything slightly amiss. Would highly recommend this venue and would use it again without a doubt."

Absolutely delicious, beautifully packaged...

Fudge by Rich As always, absolutely delicious with amazing feedback from all who tried the product! Beautifully packaged up for us, delivery process fast and reliable, and Nicole couldn't have been more helpful in turning around such a large order on such short notice ensuring we had everything needed for the trade show... Think I have a new favourite flavour too, the Rocky Road is to die for!!

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach

What a professional events team...

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach "The events team at Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach are truly professionals at what they do. The organisation in particular of the banquets team - always so helpful and ensure that our seminars run smoothly. The only minor suggestion that I would make is more labels to indicate the types salads and sandwiches that are on offer on lunch buffets."

Suited our brief perfectly... staff could not do enough for us!

I really appreciated the attention to detail & communication...

Mantra Bell City "Whilst I do not attend these meetings to see the room in person, I certainly had no complaints from any of my management team (no news good news!) The communication from the event co-ordinator in particular was excellent prior to our meeting. It was organised at short notice and she showed such high attention to detail which I really appreciated."

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne

Really good quality & great value... best external meeting venue in a while!

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne "The room was appropriately presented, with everything we had requested already in place. Morning tea and lunch were more than ample, and was 'yummy'! Really good quality and great value for money. One of the managers even said it’s been the best external meeting venue he’s been to in a while."


The venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none!

Dockside "We held our Staff Christmas party at Dockside this year - the venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none. From the moment I booked the venue, the service was fantastic. The event organiser kept in contact throughout the year, reminding when things needed to be done. Everything went smoothly on the night of the party, the food was amazing, the staff were excellent & the event manager on the night bent over backwards to help with...

Excellent food, fantastic spaces to relax & network, country hospitality - we'll definitely be back again!
