Melbourne's expositions and conventions cover far more than just business meetings, with the Armageddon Expo, Supanova Pop Culture Expo, and multiple food, wine, and fashion conventions held throughout the city. The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is where much of this takes place. With multiple meeting and exhibition rooms, including an incredibly impressive main room, the MCEC is as memorable as it is large. The Crown Plaza and Holiday Inn are two Melbourne hotels near the convention centre.
Melbourne's eateries are a source of pride in the city, and include everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to cosy bars and pubs. The Becco, Bacash, France-Soir and Zio's Ristorante are some of the nicer restaurants in the city, while 90 Secondi and A Lounge Grill offer a more intimate atmosphere.
Melbourne is Australia's best shopping city. The Queen Victoria Market and the South Melbourne Market offer a number of vendors and street shops near the hotels in Melbourne, while Collins Place and Melbourne central offer more traditional shopping experiences. Buyers can look through both, or choose to discover smaller shops along the 4 kilometers of Chapel Street.
Melbourne offers a rich culture of burgeoning shops and casinos, gardens and vineyards to tourists from around the world. For a complete Melbourne experience, tourists should include in their schedule visits to the Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Melbourne Museum.
Melbourne is home to several major sporting events including tennis, horseracing, football, racing and cricket, although football and cricket are the most popular. Football fans can visit the Australian Football League at Docklands Stadium, which holds some 40,000 spectators.
