The Brisbane Entertainment Centre (BEC) is a centre, located in Boondall, a Brisbane City suburb, in Queensland, Australia. It is managed by AEG Ogden.
The arena has an array of seating plans which facilitate the comfort of its users, subject to performance. Specific seating plans are usually allocated, depending on the performance and the size of its audience. The general seating arrangements are end stage mode, "in the round" and intimate mode, which only uses half of the arena. The centre also houses a sporting complex and small function rooms which are available to hire for wedding reception and business functions.
The centre has 11,000 tiered seats and a maximum concert capacity of 14,500 making it the largest indoor live entertainment arena in Brisbane. It cost $71 million to construct.
The centre's large audience capacity is mostly used for the staging of concerts and musical theatre shows, including Grease, Beauty and the Beast, and The Man from Snowy River: Arena Spectacular. It has also staged ice-skating shows, including Disney on Ice. The Entertainment Centre was also the filming venue for the original Australian series of Gladiators from 1995 to 1997.
