The events, which the MCB has secured since the start of this financial year, are estimated to attract 10,500 delegates to Victoria over the next five years.
The 10 conferences range from Childhood Trauma: Understanding the Basis of Change, being held in August next year, to the World Engineers’ Convention in November 2019. Other events announced include the International Feng Shui Convention in November 2014, the Annual Conference on Global Economic Analysis in June 2015 and the Annual World Conference on Carbon in July 2017.
Eight of the 10 meetings will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Karen Bolinger, chief executive officer of the MCB, said: "Winning events in these sectors exposes our scientists and industry leaders to international best practice, boosts the skills and experience of our local workforce, and increases access for Victorian industries to international markets.
"In addition, business events create positive flow on benefits for small to medium businesses throughout the state by creating significant revenue opportunities for hotels, restaurants and other service providers.
"The competition to attract these valuable international conferences from other states in Australia and countries across the globe is fierce, so it is essential that MCB takes a strategic approach to win these bids; researching, planning and bidding for business events as far out as 2028, and it’s fantastic to see it all pay off."
