Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Recognised as Australasia’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre from 2012 – 2015 by the prestigious World Travel Awards, MCEC connects you with everything you need for a successful event. This includes amazing spaces, leading technology, creative food and wine, and staff with the skills and experience to bring it all together. Visitors are often struck by the architectural brilliance of MCEC, which has won some of Australia’s most prestigious architecture and design awards. The triangular form of the building relates to its site, a key focal point for Melbourne’s urban axis that runs through the Central Business District, Docklands and the Yarra River.
If entering from the Clarendon Street end of Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, you can walk the length of the Exhibition Centre, approximately 10 minutes, and cross over into the Covention Centre through the enclosed walkway.
