Melbourne’s Industry Sectors

Melbourne leads the way in culture, health and sciences, ICT, renewable energy and infrastructure, supported by state-of-the-art venues and conferencing facilities. 


Known for its game-changing innovations and initiatives, Melbourne is home to some of the world’s best scientific and creative minds and inventions. It was the birthplace of the bionic ear, and is a leader in HIV research and nanotechnology.

Not only does Melbourne excel in research and development, it also has an outstanding track record for hosting large and prestigious international conferences, including the 20th International AIDS Conference in 2014.  

Further enhancing Melbourne’s first-class business events capabilities, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is undergoing a major expansion. When it is completed in mid-2018, it will be the largest convention and exhibition space in Australia.
