A cultural spin on conventions

Meeting planners often face the difficult task of finding a dynamic destination with world-class meeting venues that can spark inspiration in both their CEOs and delegates. Internationally recognized as the world’s leading venue operators, AEG Ogden makes the choice easy by offering a collection of award-winning convention and exhibition centers based in historically and culturally rich cities in Australia, Malaysia, Qatar, and now in the Sultanate of Oman.


Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre(BOL) Vibrant, engaging, and surrounded by some of Australia’s greatest natural treasures, Brisbane also has a serious side as one of the area’s largest centers for business and groundbreaking scientific research. Delegates can enjoy the best of business and pleasure by meeting at Australia’s most flexible venue, catering to events from eight to 8,000 attendees.

Cairns Convention Centre(BOL) Cairns has all the attributes of a world-class city, and is home to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage Rainforest, and the outback. Its award-winning venue caters to 300 to 3,000 delegates, supported by excellent infrastructure, including an international airport, 7,000 hotel rooms, and some of Australia’s best aboriginal cultural experiences and abundant tour options.

Darwin Convention Centre(BOL) Set in the Northern Territory, Darwin is Australia’s most multicultural city, with plenty of history, yet also rich in industries such as oil and gas, minerals, renewal energy, tropical medicine, and indigenous health sectors. Located within a superb waterfront precinct, the center features 131,000 square feet of exhibition space, a 1,500-seat auditorium, and much more.


Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre(BOL) Situated in a city known for its bustling commerce, diverse culture, and rich colors, this spectacular venue overlooks the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers and the KLCC Park. The convention center has two auditoriums seating 3,500 and 500, a grand ballroom, three conference halls, a banquet hall, six exhibition halls including a marquee, and 20 meeting rooms.

Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre(BOL) The Sultanate of Oman’s beauty and diversity have attracted traders and inspired visitors for more than five thousand years. That’s why meeting planners and delegates eagerly await the completion of Oman’s first purpose-built convention center in 2016 - where they will experience why Lonely Planet and National Geographic have rated this “Jewel of Arabia” one of the world’s “must-see” destinations.

Qatar National Convention Centre(BOL) One of the world’s fastest-growing economies, Qatar offers world-class facilities with an authentic Arabian experience and warm hospitality. Located within Education City, an enclave of elite education and research institutions, this venue features 430,000 square feet of exhibition space, a 2,300-seat lyric-style theatre, a 4,000-seat conference hall, three auditoriums, and 52 meeting rooms.
