details

At Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), we’re passionate about creating inspirational environments. We do this by delivering a personalised service and partnering with our customers to offer ideas, insights and imaginative solutions.

Our aim is to tailor every experience. Whether it’s a 1,000 person gala feeling like an intimate dinner with friends, a sell-out concert feeling like a private serenade or extraordinary culinary creations that taste home-made – we realise it’s the little details that make all the difference.

MCEC is distinctly Melbourne. We are part of a vibrant events precinct in the heart of the world’s most liveable city and Australia’s creative hub. We take inspiration from the creative, cultural and culinary delights of Melbourne and offer the inspiration, innovation and expertise to create memorable experiences for you and your guests.

We are the only centre in Australia to offer onsite accommodation, with the fivestar Pan Pacific Melbourne and Novotel Melbourne South Wharf directly connected via private internal walkways.

We have strong networks and partner with key Melbourne and Victorian organisations to ensure your experience is truly a Melbourne one.

At MCEC, we are shaped by you.
