Kath’s Stadium of Dreams: keeping major events LOCAL

KATH Casey is the business leader with arguably the most exciting office on the Central Coast.
As Venue Manager at Industree Group Stadium – the region’s home of live sport and entertainment – it’s often one of the busiest offices too.
Delivering 40 events a year including A-Leagues football, NRL and rugby, as well as concerts and other entertainment, and business, social and community events too, Kath and her small team host content that ultimately drives visitation to the Central Coast, injecting millions into the economy and creating local jobs.
“It’s part of what I love about my job here at the Stadium, when we bring quality events to the Central Coast, everyone in our community benefits,” says Kath.
“Visitation numbers increase, hotel beds are filled, and money is spent in the local community, bringing prosperity to the region and creating jobs.”
Kath has been part and parcel of the Central Coast Stadium since 2003 after joining from Central Coast Council where she was an Event Coordinator. She has been Venue Manager – aka The Boss – for the past decade.
“I moved to the Central Coast for a better life 32 years ago and feel blessed each and every day to be part of such a special community and living in, as we call it, ‘Our Paradise’,” says Kath.
“We are absolutely committed to making Industree Group Stadium accessible to everyone in our community, hosting a diverse range of events. We also focus on supporting grass-roots sport as well as elite men’s and women’s sport.” 
Kath is experienced in sponsorship, marketing, promotions, and advertising with an emphasis on strategic direction and business management. 
She is passionate about the Central Coast and has been involved in a variety of community events and organisations, including volunteering her time to assist local sport, charity and community groups.
Kath has recently been appointed to the Board of Directors at Central Coast Leagues Club and is also a member of the Business NSW Central Coast Regional leaders program.
Industree Group Stadium is owned by Central Coast Council and now operated by leading event and venue management company VenuesLive, who Kath represents. It’s a combination that has brought a new level of professionalism to the stadium business – and a new strategic framework that focuses on “keeping it local”.
As a result, Kath is driving a phenomenal local business success story on the Central Coast as the region's thriving waterfront stadium teams up with Coast companies to supercharge business and drive employment.
In a whirlwind few weeks, #IndustreeGroupStadium has rolled out a series of new commercial deals featuring rising stars of business on the Coast - including Eastcoast Beverages and Six String Brewing Company.
Of course, the biggest business success of all is naming rights partner Industree Group Pty Ltd . . . the Berkeley Vale owned-and-operated innovator, designer and manufacturer of premium Personal Protective Equipment, which is celebrating 12 months with its name in lights on the local stadium.
“The Stadium came to life and the entire community became engaged earlier this year when our home team the Central Coast Mariners became the talk of Australian sport by winning the men’s A-League title and, in recent weeks, we have seen the launch of the Mariners women’s team,” says Kath.
“We have a big summer of events to look forward to, including a fabulous February that features both our Mariners men and women, five NRL clubs in pre-season fixtures, and an the amazing Freestyle Kings motocross team live at the Stadium.”
The run of elite live sport and entertainment in late summer at Industree Group Stadium will be a boon for local business, further driving visitation throughout February after the busy December and January holiday months.
