Mice Net : December 2008
convention & exhibition centres and construction of a 5000-seat convention centre, due for completion in June 2009. The venue, adjacent to the Yarra River and the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, is already attracting huge domestic and international interest. See page 96 for further details. And for a venue of a different kind in Melbourne, it is hard to go past the Melbourne Showgrounds, home to Victoria’s largest public event, the Royal Melbourne Show. While the venue continues to support and promote Victorian agricultural excellence through events, it has clearly taken a more focused approach to the corporate meetings and events market. This follows its $108 million redevelopment some time back, transforming it into a world-class venue. The upgraded venue in Ascot Vale is managed by a team dedicated to meeting their customer’s needs and maximising the event experience. The variety of spaces is mind-blowing. From restored heritage-listed buildings to brand new state-of-the-art facilities and amenities including a world-class indoor and outdoor exhibition and event space, the impressive Grand Pavilion, which can seat 4500 people, 10,000 square metre exhibition pavilion and 60,000 square metres of undercover space, Melbourne Showgrounds really is a one-stop-shop.
