Melbourne makes its mark

MELBOURNE The Melbourne Convention and Visitors Bureau (MCVB) announced that eight major congresses have been won for the city, to be held over the next five years. The one national and seven international business events are expected to attract around 7,150 delegates and be worth an estimated A$23.5 million (US$24.4 million) for the Victorian economy. This follows the recent announcement that Melbourne will also host the prestigious International AIDS Conference in 2014.

“All of these wins relate directly to the excellent standard of Melbourne’s conferencing facilities and also demonstrate the appeal of our city to major associations,” said MCVB CEO Karen Bollinger.
