MCEC to reopen for in-person events on November 5

The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) will reopen for in-person events on November 5.

The reopening date follows the release of the Victorian Government’s Roadmap: Delivering the National Plan, which forecasts when Victoria will achieve its 80 per cent double dose vaccination target.

Initially, MCEC will be able to hold indoor events up to 150 attendees at a density cap of one person per four square metres, with updated capacities to come.

The Victorian Government Roadmap indicates that vaccination is a requirement for all public events in the state.

MCEC are currently working with the Victorian Government to determine how this will work at the venue, however it is expected that anyone attending events at MCEC will have to be vaccinated, as per government guidelines.

Visitors, customers and contractors will need to verify their vaccination status on arrival. More details on this will be announced later.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we can’t wait to welcome you back to MCEC in person, for extraordinary events that make personal connections,” MCEC said in a statement.
