Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) Acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Narrm, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and to Elders of all First Nations communities that visit MCEC.

Tickets for MCEC events

We want your guests to have an extraordinary experience. Improve wait times and prevent any on-the-day issues by following our essential ticketing guidelines below. Just remember, you only need tickets for four spaces at MCEC: Plenary, Goldfields Theatre, Clarendon Auditorium, and Exhibition Bays. No other spaces require tickets in the venue.

The essentials

  1. MCEC's approval is required for all tickets. Provide a sample of your event ticket to your Event Planner for approval before printing or digital distribution.

  2. All ticketed events require an onsite box office(s) or someone available to handle ticketing enquiries and to resolve any issues throughout the event.

  3. The box office(s) should be in an area accessible before bag checks or security checkpoints.

  4. You'll need to order a WiFi connection for the box office; the free WiFi is unsuitable.

  5. Ensure that any seating references and maps provided to attendees match our naming conventions. Refer to our floor plans and space capacity guide [3.30mb] for the correct terminology.
