MCEC is once again taking bookings for events beyond 5 November. Initially, this will be with a limit of up to 150 vaccinated attendees at a density cap of 1 person per 4 square metres, with updated capacities to come.
It’s been a long time coming, but the team at MCEC can’t wait to welcome guests back to MCEC in person, for extraordinary events that make personal connections.
A word on vaccination
Vaccination is the key to returning to the world of in-person meetings that we know and love while keeping our community safe. The Victorian Government Roadmap indicates that vaccination is a requirement for all public events in the state. The team at MCEC are currently working with the Victorian Government to determine how this will work at MCEC, however, their expectation is that anyone attending events at MCEC will have to be vaccinated, as per government guidelines.
Updating the VenueSafe Plan
While vaccination is a powerful tool in protecting customers, employees and visitors, it certainly isn’t the only one. They have a range of COVIDSafe practices outlined in ourVenueSafe Plan to keep guests safe.
MCEC is in the process of updating its VenueSafe Plan to reflect vaccination requirements. While these changes are happening as we speak, restrictions remain in Melbourne and therefore override the capacities currently outlined in the plan online.
Events held at MCEC under our VenueSafe plan do not need to take any additional action under the Victorian Government Public Events Framework.
