Meet in Melbourne: Hosting international conferences

< 1 min read

Melbourne has a reputation as a leading destination for scientific conferences and events, and is an international hub for innovation in science.

World-class facilities, internationally renowned universities and a highly skilled workforce have seen Victoria deliver many research breakthroughs, from the cochlear implant to the first frozen embryo birth.

Melbourne is also home to Australia’s newest, most versatile convention and event facility – the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). Having won many international awards for service and environmental innovation, the MCEC is an ideal venue for successful conventions.

By nurturing talent, and providing world-leading research and meeting facilities, Melbourne has established a reputation for delivering conventions which surpass delegate and organisers’ expectations.
