Attendance: 900 delegates

The globally respected ECOCITY World Summit 2017 (ECWS17) was held within the 6-Star Green rated MCEC. ECWS17 provided a platform for over 900 urban planners, environmental specialists and architects from around the world to discuss urban ecology and sustainable city initiatives.

As the first convention centre in the world to be awarded a 6-Star Green rating, MCEC was committed to ensuring that outstanding customer service and protection of the environment went hand in hand for the event.

Environmental initiatives included:

  • Partnering with local suppliers to minimise food miles.
  • Ensuring a focus on fresh, seasonal produce and working alongside ECW17 throughout the planning process to develop a menu that showcased local ingredients.
  • No disposable packaging was used for any food served during the event.
  • Waste separation streams were available throughout the event to minimise landfill and encourage recycling.
  • MCEC partnered with OzHarvest to donate left-over food from the event to food shelters located throughout Melbourne.
