The Magnetic Storm Conference Venue

The Magnetic Storm Conference Venue is conveniently located in Newton Park which is the business hub of the city. The pleasant surroundings and feeling of complete privacy will make you believe you have left the city altogether. Everything you need is under one roof – from stylish finishes and a newly added bar, to a tranquil rock pool garden. It’s just like a getaway.

Our clients at the conference venue can relax in knowing that there is always a technician present to assist them should any problems arise. Our larger rooms can hold meetings of up to 60 delegates, while our smaller rooms are ideal for 20 to 30 guests. It’s important for all of our guests to be comfortable throughout the year, which is why all rooms are equipped with air-conditioning. Hosts of these meetings are also given lighting control to complement their presentations, such as blacking out the entire venue.

Our staff can recommend great catering ideas for your event or function at The Magnetic Storm Conference Venue. The staff can serve guests in the pre-assembly area that leads out into the peaceful garden.
