The Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) launched a new webinar series for event planners yesterday with more than 155 event planners turning in to learn more about hosting business events in Melbourne, new venues, teambuilding ideas, accommodation, experiences, and how MCB help deliver an outstanding business event. As the city prepares to reopen for business events, a key highlight of yesterday’s educational session were valuable insights into the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) Venue Safe Plan and new virtual and hybrid events solutions.

The MCEC’s new virtual events solution builds on its existing expertise and capabilities in running live-stream events and facilitating virtual gatherings. From ticketed online events to corporate launches, large scale conferences and even virtual gala dinners, the clever team at MCEC can provide an elevated virtual experience with high production values to match.

As part of the offering, MCEC has invested in purpose built studios that allow for scalable events – from a more intimate fireside chat, to a panel discussion of up to six presenters. There’s also the capacity to host live-streaming across multiple spaces that allow for a hybrid of virtual and in-person events, for when restrictions ease.

Look out for the next MCB Event Planners webinar coming soon.
