Venue Management Models

VenuesWest uses four management models across its portfolio of state-owned venues. Each model aims to deliver VenuesWest’s vision in the most effective and efficient way.

  • VenuesWest Managed this model is suitable where VenuesWest has the knowledge, experience and capacity to manage venue operations and directly support high performance sport. This model regularly partners with the private sector to deliver services.
  • Partner Managed this model is suitable for use in venues hosting a variety of different events involving multiple hirers. VenuesWest engages an external party through an open tender process to manage the venue operations.
  • Co-managed this model is suitable for use in venues where there is a primary tenant responsible for the majority of usage. This model provides the tenant with priority of use.
  • Lease Agreement this model is suitable for use in single purpose venues with a sole tenant. A lease is provided to the tenant in line with the objectives for that venue.
