In a year of milestones, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Melbourne Convention Centre, along with one year since opening its new expansion space.
MCEC Chief Executive, Peter King said the expansion has been a great addition to the venue, increasing MCEC’s economic impact.
Since the official opening in July 2018, MCEC’s expansion has hosted 247 events including a diverse range of meetings, conferences and exhibitions.
The Melbourne Convention Centre was officially opened on 5 June 2009, by former Premier of Victoria, the Hon. John Brumby AO who now presides as Chairman of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Trust (MCET).
Mr Brumby said the venue had already created a lasting legacy through its significant contribution to the Victorian visitor economy.
Plenary Group Chairman John O’Rourke congratulated MCEC on the milestone, highlighting the whole-of-precinct approach taken while planning the original project.
