Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre

Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC) plays an important role for Melbourne in hosting expos, influential speakers, concerts and events. If it’s happening in Melbourne it will be at MCEC.

Just across the Yarra River sits Waterfront Apartments Melbourne, your ideal fully furnished 1,2 or 3-bedroom accommodation solution if you are attending an event at MCEC. Just over Seafarers Bridge, a two-minute walk away.

MCEC is currently being expanded at a cost of $200 million with an additional 20,000 square metres of flexible space including new exhibition halls, additional meeting rooms, multi-purpose event area for seminars, banquet rooms for gala events and new café and bar. Completion is due in mid 2018 and once completed MCEC will hold the position as the largest convention & exhibition space in Australia, equivalent in size to three and a half MCG’s attracting even more events and visitors to Melbourne.

The inspiration for this brand new space came from Victoria’s rich history in the goldfields by using the colour ‘gold’ for the expansions exterior, symbolizing prosperity and grandeur. Naming the new rooms; Sovereign Room, Eureka Rooms, Goldfield’s Theatre, Café & Bar, has carried through this gold theme.

Mind Body Spirit Festival, June 8 – 11. Held bi annually with 200 exhibitors. This festival brings you the best in health, wellness and spiritual guidance.
