The Australian War Memorial is pleased to announce the ongoing partnership for a further seven years between BAE Systems Australia and the Memorial. This partnership will continue to support the provision of high-tech equipment and resourcing of the theatre at the Memorial.

The Memorial Director, Dr Brendan Nelson, stated that the continual commitment from BAE Systems Australia to the Memorial, which began five years ago, represents an ongoing dedication to what the institution embodies.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with BAE Systems Australia for another seven years and thank them for supporting this great institution. I congratulate the BAE Systems Australia on their 60-year anniversary and their accomplishments in an increasingly challenging environment.”

The Chief Executive of BAE Systems Australia, David Allott, is pleased to continue to work with one of Australia’s most iconic institutions.

“It is with great pleasure that BAE Systems Australia will continue to partner with the Australian War Memorial in support of the vital role it plays in commemorating Australian service in wartime. It is an important platform with which to engage with the community and encourage involvement at the Memorial.”

The BAE Systems Australia has supported the Memorial in providing a fully self-contained presentation venue offering a complete conferencing facility.

Ms Robyn Hendry, CEO of the Canberra Convention Bureau stated that BAE Systems Theatre at the Memorial is one of those hidden gems in Canberra. “Once clients experience the services offered at this venue, they return time and time again. The quality of the amenities is second-to-none, and being part of one of the world’s great museums contributes to the success of Canberra being considered an ideal conference destination.”
