AEG Ogden To Manage Perth Arena

Brisbane-based AEG Ogden will operate the 15,000-capacity Perth Arena when it opens in April 2012.

The venue has been mired in controversy over its delays. It was supposed to open in January 2009 and its budget has blown out threefold to $483 million.

AEG Ogden is a joint venture between the Australian-based Ogden IFC and AEG Facilities, which operates or consults with more than 90 venues worldwide.

Its Western Australia division, AEG Ogden Perth, manages His Majesty’s Theatre, Perth Concert Hall, Playhouse Theatre, Subiaco Arts Centre and the soon-to-be-completed State Theatre Centre of WA.
