The new centre will include 8.5 metre-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, a 2,000 square metre pillarless ballroom and 800 square metre pre-function space.

On two levels, the upper floor will feature a 250-seat auditorium, multiple breakout rooms, Broadcast Studios and outdoor terraces with uninterrupted views of the Melbourne city skyline.

Stage 3 will also deliver a new 5,000 seat Show Court Arena two new match courts and central logistics hub including a kitchen and loading dock; all due for completion in 2023.
