Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre - MCEC

details

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is the home of unconventional.  

At MCEC we do things a little differently. We bring fresh ideas and imagination to every event. We happily turn concepts on their head to make each experience momentous. 

We welcome events of all shapes and sizes, from meetings and conferences to exhibitions, concerts and galas, whether in-person, virtual or hybrid. 

And our city is our inspiration. Melbourne is on show at MCEC – in the architecture and design, food and hospitality, location and views. 

Discover the difference at MCEC.
