Melbourne wins the title of the World’s Most Liveable City for seventh year in a row
The EIU’s Liveability Ranking measures living conditions in 140 countries across five overarching criteria of stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
Melbourne achieved a perfect score for healthcare, education and infrastructure, and overall the highest score combined of 97.5 out of 100.
Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) CEO Karen Bolinger welcomed the achievement.
“The World’s Most Liveable City award highlights that Melbourne is an exciting, intelligent and welcoming city, and reinforces the city’s position as a leading destination for conferences and meetings,” she said.
“The city has an outstanding track record of hosting some of the world’s largest and most prestigious international conferences, which would not be possible without our modern infrastructure, accessibility, convenience and thriving culture.
“Melbourne provides the ideal base as a destination for business and play, with the opportunity to collaborate with some of the world’s greatest minds based in Melbourne, then follow that up in our 24-hour city that boasts world class dining and bars, theatre, major events and shopping.
“I’m not being biased, but as a business events destination Melbourne truly does have it all!”
