Worth an estimated $3million in economic impact
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is proud to welcome the 31st Annual Neuroscience Meeting (CNS) this weekend, worth an estimated $3million in economic impact from 16 to 17 July.
With 300 attendees from across the globe, the meeting moves to a different location each year, this being the first time in 31 years it’s been held outside Europe and the USA.
The event secured by Melbourne Convention Bureau with support from MCEC’s Club Melbourne Ambassador Professor Anthony (Tony) Burkitt, will see some of the brightest minds in neuroscience technology gather at MCEC, and serves as a forum for young scientists to present their work and to interact with senior leaders in the field.
CNS combines mathematical analyses and computer simulations with experimental neuroscience, to develop a principled understanding of the workings of nervous systems and apply it in a wide range of technologies.
Club Melbourne Ambassador
Founded by MCEC in 2005, the Club Melbourne Ambassador program brings together thought-leaders such as Professor Burkitt, Chair in Bio-signals and Bio-systems in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, to attract major global events to Melbourne that cement the city’s reputation as a knowledge capital.
Since the program’s inception, Club Melbourne Ambassadors have attracted 156 international events for Melbourne and generated an estimated economic impact of $1 billion.
