Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre

The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is a large venue situated on the edge of the Yarra River in Melbourne's CBD, across the road from Crown Casino. Originally opened in 1996, the venue is sometimes referred to as "Jeff's Shed", after Premier Jeff Kennett who was in power at the time of its construction and opening. Moveable walls allow the space to be split from a maximum of 30,000 sq/m of 360 metres long by 84 metres wide into a minimum of 3,000 sq/m spaces. The centre hosted Badminton, Boxing and Weightlifting during the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games with temporary grandstands used. In 2009, the new Convention Centre was built at the venue at a cost of $1 billion. This included the Plenary with is the centrepiece of MCEC and has seating for 5,564 people across two levels.
