Sustainability the focus of latest eGuide from MCB
Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) has released a special edition of its eGuide promoting Melbourne’s sustainability credentials.

The latest guide offers multimedia highlights of Melbourne across all aspects of sustainability, from carbon neutrality to accessibility, Indigenous culture and eco experiences.

“Event planners are increasingly seeking to integrate sustainable options into their programs,” said MCB’s chief executive, Julia Swanson.

“MCB works hard to prioritise sustainability efforts within the business events industry, and we hope that the special fourth edition eGuide will help inspire planners to reimagine their events with sustainability at the forefront of their planning.”

In the eGuide, Melbourne Zoo is flagged as the world’s first carbon neutral zoo, while visits to Phillip Island, 90 minutes from Melbourne, are encouraged for their famous nightly parade of Little Penguins and for the impact visitors have on contributing to conservation efforts on Phillip Island.

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) credentials are also front and centre, with sustainability achievements, partnerships and aspirations all detailed.

The eGuide includes a feature on working with all-female crews for exhibition builds from Moreton Hire to MCEC’s all-female tech team and an all-female film crew from Said & Done Media.

Sustainable dining, team building and hotels are included in the guide too as are Indigenous supplier options.

“At MCB, we encourage event organisers to integrate concepts that focus on broader social and economic outcomes when hosting events in Melbourne,” said Swanson.
