Located on the south bank of the Yarra River and just 20 minutes walk from the city centre is the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).
As the largest convention and exhibition venue in Australia, MCEC can accommodate any event with a variety of multi-functional spaces, such as the Plenary, 52 meeting rooms and 30,000 square metres of pillar-less exhibition space.
The MCEC is set to open its new 20,000-square metre expansion in July 2018. The new architecturally designed spaces will provide planners with more options for any event type; from meetings and conferences through to educational seminars or gala dinners.
With a world first 6-Star Green Star environmental rating, the MCEC continuously raises standards in technology and sustainability, and sets the benchmark for venue service.
MCEC is also the only centre in Australia to offer on-site accommodation, with the opening of the new 347-room Novotel Melbourne South Wharf.
The bustling South Wharf Precinct located on the doorstep of the MCEC, offers delegates excellent options to visit the DFO shopping centre and enjoy an array of great waterside dining housed in restored heritage sheds overlooking the spectacular Yarra River and city skyline.
Melbourne also has a superb range of accommodation to suit all budgets and delegate needs, with over 4,300 rooms within a short walk of MCEC.
