EEAA welcomes $205m investment in MCEC
The $205 million expansion adds 20,000 square metres, taking MCEC’s total size to 70,000 square metres.
EEAA chief executive Joyce DiMascio says that the expansion will add further capacity and flexibility for both national and international clients.
“The increased event space is anticipated to attract more events to Australia and improve our business events competitiveness,” she said. “Around the country state governments are all being asked to consider the venue requirements for the business events sector in the future.
“This latest investment by the Victorian Government will help the exhibition and events industry enormously and demonstrates the State’s continued recognition of business events as a driver of the Victorian economy.
“It is an exciting time for MCEC and we look forward to working closely with them to leverage their expansion as an opportunity for the industry.”
