The New MCEC & Hilton South Wharf

Ooh - what fun. I got to have a look at the new Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC) the other day.
So many fabulous spaces! A massive auditorium, lots of other different sized rooms, many of which have natural light, the built in AV, and the REALLY COMFY chairs. (I also liked the way some of the chairs were red, and some were black, and when they set the room they do this cool kind-of diagonal stripe kind of set up - hard to explain!).
The MCEC recently shone at this year's Australian Interior Design Awards, winning the National Award in the Public Design category and the Best of State Award in the Commercial Design category. The venue was also Highly Commended in the Environmentally Sustainable Design category.
As well as being the first ‘6 Star Green Star' environmentally rated convention and exhibition centre in the world, the MCEC has been the winner of numerous awards for its exceptional environmental and design features.
AND we got to also have a look at the Hilton South Wharf, which is literally on top of the new centre. Not really any meeting space (well, a small board room, but that's all), but lovely rooms (with beds that you just want to jump on) and great bathrooms. The Tapas Bar downstairs looks like it would be great fun on a Friday night, too.
Hopefully I get to use these great new additions to Melbourne soon!
