Incentive travel to Melbourne made easy

Incentive travel to Melbourne made easy with the Melbourne Convention Bureau

Thinking about your next meeting, event or incentive destination? Choose Melbourne, a city where innovation and creativity meets, delivering a multitude of ever-changing and exclusive experiences to accommodate every group.

Not sure where to start? Speak to the Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB). They live and breathe the city and the surrounding regions and provide a free one-stop-shop service to help you create the most memorable Melbourne meeting or event possible.

From organising your next corporate reward program and designing a bespoke WOW itinerary, to sourcing conference and meeting spaces, MCB will connect you with the right people, places and products to ensure your event is planned and executed with ease.

Unless you’ve personally had experience with a convention bureau, you may not know what one even is and what support services they can provide for time-poor event planners.

Quite simply, a convention bureau can step in and help you find the perfect products you need for your event. That might include transport options from the airport, accommodation within a set budget, off-site dinner venues, a yoga teacher for a morning yoga session, a group team activity that is adrenalin-charged or more relaxed, and right through to sourcing special locally made gifts for attendees or speakers.

With over 50 years’ experience, the MCB works with the best suppliers to ensure you have flexibility, certainty, and peace of mind with running your next event in Melbourne.
