From country to coastline, Geelong and the Bellarine is a place where you can explore the best parts of Australia, all in one place. We are a city of natural delights, unexpected experiences and incredible food and wine. We are also a premier destination for Business Events. Our meetings and events offering is always evolving providing plenty of reasons to host business events in Victoria’s second largest city.
By 2026 Geelong will be home to a World class Convention and Exhibition Centre, with the capability to host conferences for up to 1000 pax. 2023 has seen the re-opening of the Geelong Arts Centre after a multi-Million dollar re-development, and in close proximity the brand new hotels, Holiday Inn and Quest Apartment hotel, making it the perfect precinct for residential conference programs.
We have an abundance of options when it comes to conference venues, accommodation providers, off-site dinner venues, team building activities and pre- post touring experiences. As the fastest growing region in Australia welcoming over 4.3 million visitors each year, we place a high priority on ensuring our region is accessible to all. Located only an hour’s drive from Melbourne, you can also trave into the region v-line via train, passenger ferry from Docklands or fly straight into Avalon airport, just a quick 20 mins drive from central Geelong.
