Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 

The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) opened in 1996 with the venue evolving in 2004 as part of a major precinct redevelopment to meet their commitment to support sustainability and innovation as a conference, exhibition, concert and celebrations destination for events in Melbourne. In 2009 the MCEC opened the new Melbourne Convention Centre and was the first in the world to be awarded a 6-star Green Star environmental rating. Since then, the MCEC has continued to expand and now boasts state of the art virtual and hybrid event platforms to meet to needs of the events industry and their clients. 

As the venue for the 2024 National Food Waste Summit, we can’t wait for you to join us and see all we have planned for this year’s event.
