“The iiNet Social Post is a perfect fit for our venue and will provide a unique opportunity for fans to engage on an even greater level with the diverse range of events here,” he said. “Perth Arena was the first public venue in Australia built with digital technology in mind and our partnership with iiNet allows us to continue to remain a leader in this space.”
