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.

Meetings In-person Are Back in Town

According to research by Tourism Australia’s Business Events team, there is a real appetite to get back to face-to-face events as businesses look to build team morale, reinforce company culture and reward their employees, and to meet with their suppliers or customers.

Australian businesses are very optimistic about the future of domestic business events with more than three-quarters of decision makers expecting the number of events, budget and number of attendees per event in the next 12 months to be the same or greater compared to pre-COVID.*

At MCEC, we are ready to help people reconnect in person. We have flexible, safe spaces to accommodate meetings and events of every size. And when you hire one of our many meeting and event rooms, you get so much more than space.
