Melbourne is a fantastic venue to host ICCM22, being a major centre for research, innovation, manufacturing and utilisation of advanced composites.

Melbourne is a vibrant, culturally diverse and safe city, which makes it an ideal venue for ICCM22. Awarded the World’s Most Liveable City seven years in a row, from 2011  to 2017, the City of Melbourne has much to offer ICCM22 delegates, including great restaurants, bars and cafes, shopping and markets, and fantastic sight-seeing.

Melbourne International Airport is a major hub with flights from the Pacific, Europe, Asia and North America. The city centre can be easily reached by bus or taxi in less than 30 minutes.

Melbourne is the capital and gateway to the State of Victoria, with its beautiful and diverse wildlife and landscapes. Melbourne is also within easy reach of the rest of Australia; whether you want to see other cities such as Sydney, the Australian outback, the beautiful beaches and rain forests, or the stunning countryside.

Melbourne is one of the cleanest and most environmentally friendly cities in the world, with very low pollution.

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.
