Addressing the Challenge

As a prominent venue hosting numerous concerts, events, and conferences throughout the year, Qudos Bank Arena recognised the need to provide a reliable source of drinking water for its patrons. Prohibiting outside cans and bottles for safety reasons, the arena aimed to minimise plastic waste resulting from the purchase of bottled water within the facility.
