Melburnians love their city and are proud when Melbourne is recognised globally for being such a great destination to live, work and meet. Recently, Melbourne was named the best city in the world to live in for the fourth year running, topping the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Global Liveability Index. Then in August, Conde Nast Traveler magazine awarded Melbourne as the world's friendliest city and Australia's "capital of cool".
Melbourne continues to have so much to offer its business visitors and there has never been a better time to let your colleagues and delegates discover Melbourne and experience it for themselves. The Spring Racing Carnival is on until 23 November, so soak up the buzz on and off the track and join glamorous punters and champion thoroughbreds as they descend on Melbourne.
