Aside from being one of the country’s leading shopping destinations, Mall of Asia complex houses several integrated property developments with the MOA Arena as the premier events venue for world-class entertainment and sporting events.

SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. (SMLEI) is the lifestyle and entertainment arm of SM Prime Holdings Inc. that offers the best experience in movies, events, leisure and technology. One of the premier brands under SMLEI is the Mall of Asia Arena, well-known as an architectural “eyecon.”


Concert house

The Mall of Asia Arena has been the venue for both local and international sports and entertainment events. It is famous for being the concert house to Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Ed Sheeran, Aerosmith, Madonna and many more internationally recognized artists, as well as for introducing the first pre-season game of a globally renowned basketball association and for bringing the world’s top tennis players to the country. The Arena was also one of the venues for Pope Francis visit last year.


Constructed in 2010 for about P3.6 billion, the MOA Arena has an eye-shaped façade in glass with pressrooms, meeting and greeting rooms for press conferences, and four dugouts. There are also nine loading bays to make ingress-egress of food and container trucks easy.

The Arena is Wi-Fi ready and has PWD access lanes through the venue. Escalators are available in every level for the patrons’ convenience. There are also 16 well-designed smoking lounges.

Another unique feature is the Corporate Suites—private rooms with its own restrooms, min-bar, sofas and a private gallery with cinema seats. Occupants are entitled to a season pass for all the shows in the Arena.

Aside from being included in Pollstar’s Top 100 Arena Venues in 2015 Worldwide, it also happens to be the only venue in the Philippines that has an entire floor dedicated to Premier Suites or Corporate Boxes.

The Premier Suites provide companies and individuals with an exclusive spot to watch all Arena events from their box while enjoying the private and comfort of spacious lifestyle area.

Advertising opportunities

The venue also gives companies advertising opportunities that are sure to target the market that they want to capture. This is possible because of the range of various events at the Arena every week whether it’s a sports or entertainment affair.


Box owners can also use their suites for meetings, get-togethers, product launches and others provided we are advised beforehand.

Each suite has its own bar area and exclusive rest room.

Food can be arranged by a caterer or ordered from the Premier Café located on the same floor. Butlers are stationed outside each suite during events to take your orders or the phone can be used to call a butler to your suite.

Premier suites

The 31 Premier Suites could be leased on a long-term basis and 10 units are available on a per event basis called Events Suites. These options make the Arena unique not just in the country but in Southeast Asia as well, because there is no other venue with corporate suites in this part of the world.

Unlike suites that are normally located in the highest level of a stadium, the Mall of Asia Arena’s Corporate Suites are located just above the lower box section.

The suites can go for one- to five-year leases depending on the company. PLDT, Banco de Oro and SMIC are among the big companies that have already secured spots. Globe also has a suite for its Globe Platinum members to enjoy.

Suite owners have a special VIP entrance to the Arena.

For those interested in booking a suite, please call Rossana L. Unson, senior manager, SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc. at Mobile No. +63917 8090489
