membership of a range of organisations enhances our role as a major
event destination and can assist the conference organiser by
offering expertise and services.
Melbourne Convention & Visitors
This is a not-for-profit organisation that markets Melbourne and
Victoria nationally and internationally as one of the world's best
business event destinations. Unlike any other Australian Convention
Bureau, MCVB tailors its services to assist in every aspect of
bidding, planning advice and support, not only to secure the rights
to host international and national events, but to ensure the
success and the social and commercial legacy of these events.
Meetings and Events Australia
MEA is the largest national association of individuals and
businesses covering all sectors of the meetings and business events
industry. As a national, independent, not for profit organisation
it assists the business development of members by promoting
meetings as an effective means of communication. It also promotes
the value and effectiveness of meetings as an important high-yield
sector of business travel and tourism.
Business Events Victoria
BEV operates as a collective of conference venues, accommodation
providers, tour operators, local councils, regional tourism
organisations and service providers. They work to develop a
coordinated and cooperative industry approach to the marketing and
promotion of business events for regional Victoria. BEV aims to
grow regional Victoria's market share by working collaboratively to
demonstrate the quality and scope of conference venues, services
and settings in regional Victoria.
