Conference Location 2017: Melbourne, Victoria

Melbourne is a lively, sophisticated city packed with shops, restaurants, bars and cafes in wide, leafy boulevards and tiny, atmospheric laneways that beckon to be explored.

With regular medal-winning appearances in the Economist’s Most Liveable Cities list (taking the top award three times since 2002), Melbourne has a right to be boastful. But despite its temperate climate, safe streets, cosmopolitan lifestyle and beautiful setting, locals remain low-key about their city.
They know that Melbourne is Australia’s undisputed event, sport, culture and food capital; a city with a European approach to style and a lifestyle that puts it in the fast lane. No need to shout.
It’s a sophisticated mix of style, warmth and Australian informality and you won’t find it in any other place. This city practically breathes the good life. Believe it. When you see it – you’ll think the world of Melbourne.
