Rotary win to bring $88m to Victoria

Melbourne will welcome more than 20,000 Rotary members from around the world after securing the 2023 Rotary International Convention.

The 2023 Rotary International Convention is the most valuable convention ever secured for Victoria, delivering more than $88 million to the State economy. Locally in Australia there are 1,064 Rotary clubs and 28,000 members.

The convention will be hosted across two venues – the newly expanded Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne & Olympic Parks.

“Securing the 2023 Convention allows us to showcase the very best that Victoria has to offer visitors from across the globe, provides opportunities for local businesses and creates jobs,” said Minister for Tourism and Major Events Martin Pakula.
