Newcastle Conference Venues

Welcome to McDonald Jones Stadium’s Newcastle Conference Centre. Delivering premium conference room packages & catering.

From team building sessions to trade shows, award ceremonies, and seminars, McDonald Jones Stadium is the perfect venue for corporate events in Newcastle.


Our conference rooms utilise the abundance of natural light at McDonald Jones Stadium and each room has an outstanding view of the iconic football field. Our Newcastle conference venues are also customisable to meet your needs - the furniture, screens, and sound equipment can be rearranged to meet the requirements of the event, and we have lots of AV equipment for hire. 


Data projectors, screens, plasma televisions, whiteboards, microphones, PA systems, and more - no request is too big or too small. We’re committed to ensuring your conference or meeting goes off without a hitch.


Located on level two of our grandstand, our Newcastle conference venues have direct lift access, so the event is accessible for all guests, whether they’re team members, business partners, or contacts. Parking is also provided free of charge to all guests and we have large, spacious disabled parking spots close to the entrance.

Accommodating Newcastle conference venues with AV equipment for hire

Our meeting and conference rooms are available for hire during the week as well as on weekends - plus, our rooms are available to inspect during the week between 9am and 5pm, so you can get a feel for the venue. Please note, we offer inspections by appointment only.


In addition to the function and meeting rooms on the corporate floor, we also have private rooms far from the distractions of the outside world. These smaller, more intimate rooms are located on the ground floor and are ideal for workshops and training sessions for up to 30 guests.


If your event has heavy visual content, we can arrange blackout drapes to cover the windows, or we can position the data screen and projector away from direct light. The Broadmeadow Room, one of our most popular and sought after rooms, also has four sections which can be divided or combined based on the size of your group. This is perfect for corporate events where different aspects of the event need to be addressed separately.


No matter the theme of the event, our dedicated events team will work with you to ensure your event runs smoothly. To book one of our premium conference rooms in Newcastle, give us a call on 02 4064 3050 or fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page and tell us more about your corporate event.
