The last ICS annual meeting in Australia was in 1995 (Sydney) so a return in 2021 will be cause for celebration. Melbourne is a fantastic host city offering delegates a multicultural experience with a variety of excellent dining options, outdoor entertainment, museums and shopping.
The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is superbly located on the banks of the iconic Yarra River and within walking distance of the city centre. Around Melbourne itself are inspiring day trips to the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula wine regions, the Great Ocean Road, the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, historic Sovereign Hill and Healesville Sanctuary.
Further afield, Melbourne’s airport offers easy access to attractions, including Sydney, Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) in the outback, the Great Barrier Reef and the wonderful beach resorts of the Whitsunday Islands.
Congratulations to Helen and her team. We look forward to seeing you all in Melbourne in 2021!
