1st Malaria World Congress, the first to use new MCEC expansion space

The finish line is in sight for Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) $200 million expansion site, which is under two months away from opening.

Once completed, the new space will cement MCEC’s position as the largest convention and exhibition space in Australia, with an increased total size of over 70,000 square metres. 

The 20,000-square-metre expansion includes 9,000 square metres of exhibition space plus additional flexible, multi-purpose event space, 1,000 seat plenary theatre, multiple meeting rooms, a banquet room and the Goldfields Café and Bar.
