Vendors and sampling at events

Eventfinda Stadium promotes a safe, and well organized food and beverage service within the venue. Clients are not able to supply any food & beverage or samples in or around the venue without first seeking approval of this with their Event Coordinator.

All food and beverage vendors are to complete and comply with the appropriate documentation and registration around catering/food licencing, packaging and waste removal required by Eventfinda Stadium.  This application will be assessed by the Eventfinda Stadium management team. No exhibitor will be  authourised to operate at Eventfinda Stadium unless their vendor application has been approved. Acceptance of suitable catering/food vendors is at the complete discretion of Eventfinda Stadium.
Please note Eventfinda Stadium does not allow exhibitors to sell items that are in direct competition of what our in house catering offers. This includes but is not limited to coffee, ice cream,  fish, chips, hot dogs, pastries etc. For a full list please contact
