Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre Wins INCON Digital Infrastructure Award

On May 20, at the annual IMEX convention in Frankfurt, INCON announced ICCA member Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre as the overall winner of the 2015 INCON Digital Infrastructure Award, following fellow member venue darmstadtium's win last year. 

Now in its second year, the INCON Digital Infrastructure Award recognizes venues that provide a strong digital infrastructure "along with applications and tools that enhance the delegate productivity and experience."


“In today’s world, the quality of the digital infrastructure and support tools a venue provides can make or break an event, not to mention just providing a positive experience for the delegates who just want to stay connected,” Award Judge Bob Heile said in a statement. “Effectively managing large numbers of connected devices greatly improves the effectiveness of an event and delegate satisfaction. It is hard work but results in huge dividends. By recognising Melbourne as industry leaders we hope to inspire others to make similar investments in their digital infrastructure.”

Daniel Branik, Arinex General Manager who also sits on the INCON Judging panel noted that “the cloud is pushing many services from onsite to online, putting additional pressure on venues and their digital infrastructure.  It is important for venues to keep up with these trends providing sufficient bandwidth and infrastructure.  INCON Digital Infrastructure Award recognises those that do that the best.”

Convention centres and hotel venues interested in nominating their venue for the 2016 award will be able to do so from 1 September 2015. More information about the award is available on www.incon-pco.com/award.
