About The Event Centre

The Event Centre is the final component of The Star’s $870-million redevelopment and transformation into a total leisure and entertainment destination.

Sydney's New Multi-Purpose Venue

Built on the rooftop of The Star with views over Sydney Harbour and the city skyline, the venue has been designed to host A-list acts from around the world in intimate concert s​ettings as well as domestic and international conferences, exhibitions and awards functions.

Multi-use in every sense, it accommodates 4000 patrons in concert mode, 3000 with half seating, up to 960 in a banquet or ballroom setting and 1300 people in conference/business mode.
The 2,400 square metre column-free space is the largest banquet area of any hotel in Sydney making it ideal for gala dinners and award ceremonies.​
The Event Centre fills a void in the local convention market and gives the city an edge in the competition for entertainment events both around the country and globally.
A highlight feature is its distinctive gemstone shape and translucent glass shell exterior. The use of backlighting within the glass façade allows the venue to morph into different colours at night making it highly visible from various corners of the city.


Highly flexible, the venue has the ability to convert to various configurations with a quick turnaround time between each function or event. To create a ballroom environment, 720 retractable theatre seats can be quickly and readily stored to obtain a 1077sq m flat floor space.
Concert-goers are welcomed in a modern elegant lobby which also caters for cocktail parties and a variety of private functions. In addition, the concert venue offers four VIP suites with a premium viewing platform, bringing VIP guests close to the stage complete with their own exclusive bar and dining service.
Equipped with leading edge audio visual technology and production facilities, the Events Centre has been designed by Sceno Plus, creators of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.​
