Club Melbourne Ambassadors awarded for securing another $50 million in economic impact for Victoria.
Club Melbourne Ambassadors were last night awarded for securing 13 international conferences in 2015 – worth an estimated $50 million to the State of Victoria – at the program’s annual awards ceremony held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).
This figure doubles the worth of conferences secured by Ambassadors in 2014, with the Club Melbourne Ambassador Program continuing to be a valuable asset for Victoria in its tenth year.
Presenting at the awards ceremony, MCEC’s Chief Executive, Peter King acknowledged the significant contribution Ambassadors make through volunteering both their time and expertise to the program.
“We are incredibly proud of our Ambassadors who work tirelessly with our team and partners to lead and deliver major international conferences for the state,” Mr King said.
“MCEC is the gathering hub of Melbourne – it is the place where people from around the world come to network, learn and create business opportunities. “Club Melbourne is such an important element in our strategic plan and we look forward to continuing our ‘Team Melbourne’ partnership to secure business events for the state,” Mr King added.
