MCG Events keen to make the stadium a key venue for Indian incentive movement

Melbourne Cricket Ground is an iconic venue for the world of cricket, located in Melbourne. With cricket being the most popular sport for Indians, there is a keen interest among Indian visitors to Melbourne, Australia to visit the popular cricket stadium, known to host some of the iconic cricket matches.

Troy Stasinowsky, Director Sales & Marketing, MCG Events says that MCG is a landmark destination for Melbourne on the lines of the monuments that have become symbolic of some of the world’s popular cities. He says, “India is a very important market for us. We are focusing on offering an immersive experience of MCG with escorted tours, opportunity to play a match, tours featuring the Shane Warne Museum, visit to changing rooms, etc. We allow groups to bring in their own chef, but we have upped our ante for culinary to offer veg, non-veg and Jain meals with our in-house Indian chef to cater to their special moments.”

Till now, an Indian tourist spent half a day exploring the MCG, but MCG Events have elevated their offerings to allow guests to host gala dinners or large events at the stadium. “Currently, we are working with tour operators, but we are open to new partnerships with OTAs. We are here to meet clients of all sizes, budgets and will continue to tailor our products to meet their requirements. We are incredibly digital focused, and among the only stadiums in the world to offer a 360 degree view online.”
