Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
1 Convention Centre Place, South Wharf 3006
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is superbly located on the banks of Melbourne's Yarra River, close to the heart of the CBD and just 30 minutes from Melbourne's International Airport. The new Convention Centre has received worldwide acclaim for achieving a 6 Star Green Star environmental rating by the Green Building Council of Australia, the first in the world for a convention centre.
The modern complex is a landmark in the area, perched on the south bank of the Yarra River, and surrounded on all sides by trams, trains, buses, taxi ranks and ample car parking. A short stroll along the iconic Southbank Promenade places you in the heart of Melbourne city – Australia's culture, cuisine and events capital – where visitors can enjoy a perfect café latte or award-winning local wine at any time of day or night.
The venue is an easy walking distance from a range of accommodation options, which will be available to delegates to book at the time of registering for the conference.
As the first, and only, ‘6 Star Green Star’ environmentally rated convention centre in the world, the venue represents world leadership in best practice, innovation and sustainability and continues to raise standards to new heights in technology, imaginative catering and service options. The MCEC boasts 52 meeting rooms of various sizes, a banquet hall, a spectacular entry level foyer, and a 5550+ state-of-the-art plenary that can be divided into three self-contained, acoustically separate theatres.
