Welcome from the Locals

Welcome from Local Host Committee Chair

Welcome to Melbourne!

On behalf of the Local Host Committee, we are thrilled to welcome you to Australasia’s Leading Meetings and Conference Destination and the world’s most livable city for the last five years.

You never quite know what’s in store when you wander off Melbourne’s grid of city streets into the maze of gothic laneways behind them. Even as a local, I still find surprises here, where the venues for food, fashion and art are small, quirky and sometimes hidden.

During the social program we look forward to showcasing some of the city’s gems in these distinctively Melbourne streets, or why not come a day early and discover some of these for yourself with our pre-tours?

This year’s conference theme, “Break Conventions”, is all about thinking differently, sharing ideas and getting inspired about the fabulous industry we work in.

During the conference we trust you will make valuable business connections and leave feeling empowered to make positive changes within your own organisation.

I look forward to seeing you all at the MEA 2016 Conference!
