The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and Hilton Melbourne South Wharf have designed South Wharf Meetings & Events (SWME), a unique offering for small to medium sized meetings and events that perfectly combines the two venues’ facilities.
Launching the website today www.swme.com.au, SWME offers an intimate setting for meeting and events from 10 to 250 people, flexible and tailored menu choices, state-of-the-art technology and rooms with spectacular Yarra River views, in one of the most stunning Melbourne locations.
“SWME was designed to attract organisers of small to medium events who tend to choose hotels for their intimate atmosphere," said MCEC director of sales and marketing Anne Jamieson.
“We’ve created SWME with this in mind and aim to provide organisers the ultimate flexibility with the variety of contemporary meeting rooms available; menu options specially created by our chefs; and Hilton’s range of luxury accommodation,” she said.
Hilton Melbourne South Wharf’s general manager Brett Christ added, “SWME combines two of the most experienced brands in meetings and events to provide something compelling and unique to local and national markets. We know how to deliver memorable events, and this is a product we are excited to deliver in true Hilton style.”
Sitting alongside the Yarra River in central Melbourne, South Wharf Promenade is surrounded by bustling restaurants, thriving bars and a variety of shops. The architecture has retained much of its distinctive maritime heritage and it’s just a short stroll to Melbourne’s CBD, arts and sporting precincts and only 20 minutes from the airport.
