Plenary 1 at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
1 Convention Centre Place
The Exhibition Centre opened in 1996 and was created by Denton Corker Marshall, a Melbourne architectural firm responsible for many of Melbourne's larger buildings through the early 1990s, and features their characteristic "blade" entrance.
Its main entrance of metal blades tilted at an angle and supported by a pair of yellow rods has placed it on the list of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings. In 1996 the Exhibition Centre was awarded the Sir Zelman Cowen Award for public architecture.
The Convention Centre was designed by joint architects Woods Bagot and NH Architecture and opened its doors in 2009.
