Voted many times over as one of the world�s most liveable cities, Melbourne (the capital of the State of Victoria) is celebrated for its friendly locals, efficient services, fine wine and dining, and world-class facilities.
Melbourne boasts comprehensive transport systems, ultra-modern venues, and extensive accommodation for any event. Recognised as a major centre for research and development in the medical, science, technology, business and financial industries, Melbourne provides the perfect setting for today�s meetings, incentive travel programs, conventions and exhibitions.
The city�s ideal Business Events infrastructure includes Australia�s premier Convention Centre, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, located on the banks of the picturesque Yarra River. The Melbourne Convention Centre opened in June 2009, making Melbourne the city with the largest and most flexible convention and exhibition space in the Southern Hemisphere.
But it is within Melbourne�s hidden laneways that the city really comes to life. Here you will experience the city�s contagious passion for coffee at chic caf�s, sample award-winning local beer and wine at boutique bars, and gain a unique insight into local culture by visiting independent art galleries.
