Melbourne, Australia is the home of WEC 2019: a city surrounded by natural beauty and some of the finest cultural experiences in the southern hemisphere.  Before or after the convention, tour the breathtaking coastlines of Great Ocean Road, or explore the vineyards of the Yarra Valley, both within easy reach of the city.  In Melbourne itself, take in the iconic artworks of the National Gallery Victoria, or wander through the shops and laneway cafes for which Melbourne is renowned.


Our venue – the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre – is located in the heart of Melbourne on the edge of the Yarra River. Setting new world benchmarks, the MCEC is the first convention centre to be awarded a ‘6 Star Green Star’ environmental rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.  The centre is also raising standards to new heights in innovation, technology, imaginative catering and service options.

The MCEC is easily accessible from every direction by foot, car or public transport and is surrounded by cafes, bars, shopping and fine restaurants.
