A Feast for the Senses

For the second year in a row, the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC) scheduled a public showcase — called Open Space — to coincide with Business Events Week and Asia-Pacific Incentives & Expo (AIME), held annually at the convention center.


On Feb. 20, short talks fed the brain, and afterwards, attendees had lunch at street-hawker style stands in the Convention Centre’s foyer. The food was fresh and local and the setting was visually stimulating, with colorful seating — brilliant pops of yellow, pink, and turquoise — and lushly green vertical gardens. And as an MCEC chef explains below, as any feast for the senses, the sum was greater than its parts.
