To be held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (MCEC), located in the centre of Melbourne along the banks of the Yarra River, MELBOURNE, Victoria, Australia close to a phenomenal host of Melbourne icons and attractions. So much to see and do.

The Convention Logo

  • A returning boomerang, in the hope that delegates will return to Australia another time!
  • The blue border represents Australia as an island continent surrounded by the sea, as in the words of the Australian National Anthem - " Our home is girt by sea."
  • The Yellow background is symbolic of living in a land of sunshine.
  • The colours of the boomerang are representative of the earthy ochres and sun-burnt country we live in.
  • The choice of using a boomerang in the design was a reference to the original indigenous inhabitants of Australia.
  • Uniquely Australian.
