MCEC reopens as Victoria continues to ease restrictions

Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has reopened after eight months following Victoria’s continuing run of no community transmissions.

In line with the Victorian Government’s Public Events Framework, events at MCEC can now proceed as long as they are limited to 25 per cent of the venue’s seating capacity, up to a maximum of 250 people seated and with a density limit of one person per four square metres applied to non-fixed seated areas. Free-standing events are not permitted for the time being.

“We’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make our customers next experience at MCEC memorable and safe,” MCEC said in a statement.

“We have implemented a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures under our new VenueSafe Plan to ensure the safety and wellbeing of employees, customers, contractors and suppliers. Every event in the building will also be required to have its own COVIDsafe plan.

“It will still be some time before we can return to the level of activity we’re used to in our building. But this is a positive step.”
