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.

Convention Centre Foyer

This large central hub provides a functional, multipurpose space for exhibitions, merch, registration desks, retail outlets, special dinners and cocktail events. It is also the assigned pre-function or exhibition area for events in the Plenary. With its sweeping windows and gorgeous panoramic views of the Yarra River, your guests will feel part of the special environment as soon as they arrive.
