Celebration thrives here

Melbourne is famous for its hidden laneways, multicultural cuisines and amazing coffee. We propose using these elements to create a Festival style event for IMSC 2024 attendees that will capture the unique flavours of Melbourne and provide a truly memorable evening on the banks of our Yarra River.

The Festival will be an indoor/outdoor style event, with informal seating areas and a variety of themed food stations to suit all tastes complemented by roving entertainment featuring an Australian theme.

Rather than a traditional formal, seated dinner we believe creating a celebration of Australian culture will be more appealing to delegates and will also enable them to easily chat and network with their colleagues from around the globe.

The Festival will be held in the South Wharf Precinct which is located on the doorstep of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre so additional costs for buses and transportation will not be incurred.
