MCEC celebrates record year

MCEC celebrates record year Image

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has officially completed its most successful month in history.

Having hosted more than 100 events and more than 87,600 delegates for the month of August, the centre provided a $35 million boost to the Victorian economy.

Achieving a little under $10.5 million in operating revenue, the record month smashes the venue’s previous best month of $8.5 million, which came in August
last year.

Having also hosted one of its biggest events in history with the AIDS 2014 conference, the results come off the back of the venue’s largest year on record to date, which has so far generated $274 million for Victoria.

After hosting a record number of visitors for 2014, MCEC Chief Executive Peter King said it marked a proud moment for his team and Melbourne.

“Everything we do at MCEC is a team effort, so I congratulate our employees who together help deliver events that are memorable and generate a great legacy for the city,” he said.
