Make it Easy with Hotel Options for Your Next Conference

By Bree Pagliuso|

When it comes to planning your next event, convenience takes the spotlight. And let's be real, having a lineup of amazing hotels at your fingertips is an absolute game-changer. Our partnership with nearby hotels offers a wide range of choices and exclusive rates for MCEC guests to help you meet the unique needs of your delegates.

So, what are the perks of offering hotel choices for your conference attendees?

Just Steps Away!

Choosing a hotel near our conference venue is a game-changer that gives your delegates back valuable time and money; there is no need to worry about catching an Uber or dealing with long commutes; they can simply stroll over to MCEC, saving time and energy. Your delegates can move between their hotel and the conference without any hassle and can take advantage of breaks, networking sessions, or late-night events without getting lost in an unfamiliar city.

Personal taste in accommodation matters, and we understand that. That's why we've curated a selection of hotel partners to cater to a diverse range of preferences. Looking for luxurious indulgence or prefer a more budget-friendly option? We have something for everyone. Our hotel partners offer an array of amenities and services to improve anyone's stay, including gorgeous infinity pools, chic rooftop bars, and unparalleled views of the Melbourne skyline. Each hotel has its own unique character, allowing you to find the perfect match that resonates with your delegates.

Endless Opportunities

It's not just about the convenience but the unique opportunities for networking, socialising, and forging meaningful connections with like-minded professionals. Give delegates the convenience to exchange ideas and insights during conference breaks or catch-up post-event and enjoy vibrant conversations in the hotel lobby or rooftop bar; this sense of community fosters deeper collaborations beyond the conference walls. Choose our partner hotels for convenience, comfort, and a world of networking and socialising opportunities.
