The conference and events centre offers a variety of function rooms to suit any occasion. Whether you are planning a celebratory dinner, product launch, networking function, sales and leadership conference, team building or a formal gala dinner, RQYS is flexible to meet your every need.

The Commodores Lounge can be used as a private dining facility or an executive meeting room, with its own private bar, audio-visual equipment and high-end styling finishes.
