Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is the name given to two adjacent buildings next to the Yarra River in South Wharf. It has hosted everything from meetings, conventions and exhibitions, to concerts, tradeshows and gala dinners.
The Melbourne Exhibition Centre has a pillarless floor space of 30,000 square metres, making it the largest pillarless floor space in the southern hemisphere. This building is also known as “Jeff’s Shed”, after a former premier of Victoria.
The Convention Centre consists of a 5,541 seat Plenary Hall that can be divided into three separate theatres, 32 meeting rooms of various sizes, a grand banquet room as well as a Hilton hotel, office, residential and retail space.
Sydney Showgrounds Exhibition Hall
Sydney Showground is the venue and event management business of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting excellence in agriculture.
Sydney Showground was established in 1998 as a purpose-built home for major events as part of the NSW Government’s multi-million dollar development for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Today it is a world-class venue, delivering close to 150 national and international events each year, including music festivals, sporting events, exhibitions, trade shows and the Sydney Royal Easter Show, the flagship event of the RAS and the nation’s largest annual ticketed event.
All profits from events held on the site are invested back into supporting Australian agriculture and rural communities.
