‘We see our venue as much more than simply a place for hosting meetings and conferences. MCEC is recognised as an important communal hub in Melbourne, where both Melburnians and international delegates alike gather to share and exchange knowledge and ideas. Our relationship and connection with our city is what sets us apart,’ adds King.
The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) also recently recognised Melbourne as the number one city in Australia for delegate attendance, ranking the city 43 places ahead of its closest Australian competitor, Sydney.
‘Melbourne is always high on the list of locations for big conferences worldwide, because we do them so well. Our city has a gift for hosting business events, thanks to our great mix of infrastructure and culture,’ King explains.
‘With our current venue expansion quickly progressing and a number of exciting developments in the works, we are confident we will be able to maintain our leading position for many years to come,’ he says.
