Venue: The conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

Accommodation: Members are responsible for arranging and paying for their accommodation booking on their own account. However, the AJBCC has organised a block allocation and special conference rate for members at 3 hotels in close proximity to MCEC. These are:

  • Crown Towers
  • Crown Metropol
  • Hilton South Wharf

The AJBCC conference pages give details of the room types available as well as a direct link to each hotel’s online booking page with AJBCC conference rates.

Please be aware that at the time of the AJBCC meeting, Melbourne will be host to a major World Congress and accommodation will be at a premium. This means that members should reserve their accommodation as soon as possible to ensure they receive the special conference rate. (The hotels will progressively release unbooked rooms from the AJBCC’s block allocation as the weeks go by.) Members can book now and cancellation charges only apply closer to the check-in date. Please see the individual hotel’s terms and conditions for details.

Conference Theme

The theme is “New Challenges – New Ideas”. Plunging resources and energy prices, concerns about China‚Äôs economic transition, the impact of disruptive technologies on mature products and business process services, environmental issues and continuing excessive global liquidity make for a difficult path to be navigated. How are these challenges being met in the Australia-Japan context and what new ideas can we see emerging to mitigate such issues?

Further details of the program are now available here. Member online registration is now open.
