Melbourne is undisputedly the cultural capital of Australia where creativity and innovation come together to deliver great events, inspiring places to explore and cutting-edge advancements that are globally acclaimed.  A city where the world’s brightest minds gather to inspire, innovate and create real change in world-leading research and development, it’s the ideal destination to host collaborative business events. Set on the shores of picturesque Port Phillip Bay, the southern-most city of mainland Australia is rich in aesthetics, with its beauty enhanced by the meandering Yarra River, immaculate parks and gardens, public art, classical buildings and innovative design. It is truly a city of endless potential, where big thinking and great ideas can reach their full potential.

With its vibrant, multicultural population, temperate climate and outstanding quality of life, Melbourne is an ideal destination for conference organisers and delegates alike. The city is compact, convenient and easy to navigate with everything on a delegate’s doorstep. For the eighth year running, Melbourne has been voted ‘Oceania’s Leading Meetings and Conference Destination’ at 2021 World Travel Awards.


The city is also home to historical and modern architecture, hidden laneways, beautiful green spaces, a wealth of attractions, and a sophisticated food and wine scene, which makes Melbourne a haven for exploration. Visitors need only drive for little more than an hour in almost any direction to discover a myriad of experiences from natural springs to world-class wineries.

Melbourne is an exciting, energetic city with extraordinary surprises to be discovered around every corner.

Melbourne has a massive live music scene, with different gigs on at venues across the city every night of the week. The year’s events calendar kicks off with the Australian Open in January, right through to the Melbourne Cup Final in November. Learn more about Melbourne’s events.
