Amazing building
Apr. 2021
We visited out of curiosity and stayed for a short time. It is a marvel of architecture and it is quite big. It is a complex of buildings and hosts conventions, conferences and exhibitions. Great location by the river.

Place for a show
Oct. 2020
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is the place for a show, it holds many exhibitions throughout the year. It was Premier Jeff Kennett's brainchild, and it has worked out.

Convenient and nice
Sep. 2019
It's huge, so several conventions can go on at the same time. Nice location - on the river bank and next to numerous restaurants. It has all the amenities a respectable convention center is expected to have. People at the front desk are willing to print out a boarding pass or such small jobs for active participants. Within walking distance of public transportation. Airport shuttle stops in front.

Product of a brainwave
Jun. 2020
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is the brainchild of Jeff Kennett, former Premier of Victoria. It's built in "Russian Constructivist" style, which is why it looks a bit odd. It is a favourte venue for conferences and shows, and trade exhibitions. MCEC has good in-house catering, with up-to-date technology and flexible spaces. It's also close to the South Wharf entertainment area and across the street from the Crown entertainment complex. It's a very good facility that brings billons to Melboune every year.

Jo Koy @ The Plenary
Dec. 2019
Attended the Jo Koy Comedy Show here at the Plenary. This place is huge, wide and with multiple levels. Interesting to have it in this venue as it is also a lecture hall and Jo Koy the comedian made observation of the lecture tables that is attached to the seat. Probably needs a re-upholster some of the chair coverings as it is starting to look a bit worn out

Fabulous Venue
Feb. 2020
Visited the Convention Centre when I went to see the Jack Whitehall show. It is a spacious venue. Staff are friendly and efficient. Seating in the hall is comfortable and have good views. DFO South Wharf is close by, so you can have some retail therapy before the show. There is a cloakroom where you can leave your purchases.

Great conference and exhibition venue
Dec. 2019
I have been to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on a number of occasions over many years for work related conferences, the Good Food and Wine Show, the Mind Body and Spirit Festival, and most recently the Cake Bake and Sweets Show. It's a wonderfully spacious venue that's well signed, and easily accessible from Southern Cross Station via tram or a reasonable walk, located across the road from the Crown Entertainment Complex. My only consistent feedback is due to the vast number of visitors to this venue, the toilets require closer maintenance.
