Not your average event venue, Sydney Cricket Ground goes above and beyond to impress the event-planning EA, with attentive staff, gastronomic delights and, most importantly, some jaw-dropping hosting options…
Executive PA Media members descending on Sydney Cricket Ground were immediately impressed as they gathered round the iconic Members Pavillion for drinks, canapés and a
video introduction, projected on the scoreboard.
A pre-dinner Q&A session followed with the executive chef, the sales and marketing manager and a selection of Sydney Cricket Ground’s industry, recommending best spots in which to host a function – from private dining in the changing rooms to a longtable meeting on the Allianz field of play, anything is possible. After dinner, the EAs toured the versatile function spaces – the Brewers Pavilion, Skyline Terrace and Island Bar, plus the home change room, getting a feel for where the temperatures rise during the all important,cricket season.
As the event drew to a close, attendees were still revelling in their social media posts being shared live on the giant scoreboard whilst the competition – a chance to bag two tickets to a corporate suite for January’s Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder BBL match – got its final few entries.

“Sometimes the best venues are those right under our noses! While it doesn’t fit the ‘normal’ corporate venue profile, I can see how it could be used to great effect.”
Robyn Whyman, EA, Johnson & Johnson Medical
“The Sydney Cricket Ground – who knew it was such a fabulous location for an event? The staff know the space well and were very friendly, so I instantly felt at ease. They’re clearly passionate about what they do. The food was delicious; in particular the canapés were outstanding. I look forward to working with them in the future.”
Donna Flynn, EA, NewsCorp
“From the moment I walked in I felt engaged and welcomed so warmly. The grounds were probably not something I would have thought of using but experiencing the wonderful food and the professionalism of the staff, I’m excited about what can be done there. Well done to all!”
