About us

MCEC is Melbourne’s home of unconventional. We host more than 1,000 events each year, each one like no other. We have beautiful spaces, innovative menus and the best people in the business. Our team are not just the best at what they do, they’re the best at doing things no-one else has done before. All this comes together for moments that will stay with you long after your event.
Making a difference

As part of Melbourne’s community, we want to make an impact where it counts. We partner with leading charities to help make a difference in food sustainability, health and housing.


MCEC is more than big, beautiful buildings. We are people striving to be leaders in sustainability. We’re seeking everyday and innovative ways to be kind to the environment and to our city.

We’d like to thank ...

We’re not in it for awards, but … over the years we’ve received accolades for event delivery, sustainability, food and beverage and being a great employer. So, if awards were a big thing, we’d be chuffed.

Club Melbourne

We work with the best and brightest minds, securing some of the world’s biggest events. Thanks to them, Melbourne’s international reputation for research, business excellence and extraordinary events is assured.
