Why Melbourne

Set on the shores of picturesque Port Phillip Bay, the southern-most city of mainland Australia is Melbourne; the capital city of Victoria where creativity and innovation come together to deliver great events, exciting places to explore and cutting-edge advancements that are globally acclaimed.

An undisputed leader in innovation, the city has become synonyms with many success stories particularly in the fields of technology, science and medicine. Fostering education, research and development, Melbourne is recognised as a knowledge powerhouse where collaborations of great minds have led to breakthroughs of international acclaim.  This has led to Melbourne become an appealing destination to host collaborative business events that facilitate knowledge-sharing, trade partnerships, education, investment and exciting legacies. 

As a major Australian gateway, Melbourne is easily accessible for international delegates and also easy to navigate once arrived. Perfect to explore on foot or via our extensive transport network, Melbourne invites delegates to discover its creative culture, expressed in its food, fashion, events, arts and music scene. Or for those wanting to explore further afield, the unique natural beauty of regional Victoria is just a short trip away.
