MCEC makes every virtual event a real-life success

MCEC to offer top-quality virtual events

With its award-wining technical expertise and cutting-edge technology, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is launching a virtual event offering to help customers connect with their audiences in uncertain times.

From ticketed online events to corporate launches, large scale conferences and even virtual gala dinners, MCEC can provide an elevated virtual experience with high production values to match, which further cements the centre’s reputation as Melbourne’s destination for big ideas and inspirational events.

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.

MCEC Chief Executive Peter King says virtual or hybrid events will play an important part in the future; “While we can’t meet in person or use our studios under current restrictions in Melbourne at the moment, we’re offering our customers solutions on the other side of our city’s Stage 4 restrictions.”

“Even when we are able to come together in-person, virtual will give customers access to new audiences and audience-insights, while making it easier for international delegates and presenters to take part,” he said.

MCEC’s skilled technical team can take the pain out of organising a high-quality online event, and elevate the audience experience with broadcast-quality streaming delivered by high-speed internet, on a software platform that’s both customisable and secure for customers.

“At MCEC, our knowledge, passion, top-of-the-range technology and dedicated studios are all under one roof, ensuring a seamless experience from planning to delivery,” Mr King said.

“That means we can continue to be your best partner to deliver events online, offline and a combination of the two. We have the capabilities to adapt from virtual to hybrid and back again, and the passion to make your event shine no matter the circumstance.”

Please note that Stage 4 restrictions are in effect in Melbourne until midnight Sunday 13 September 2020, therefore bookings for MCEC’s virtual event offering and studios are only available beyond this date.
