Day one of the Congress kicked off with a rousing performance on the Town Hall’s pipe organ, played by local organist Ned Wright-Smith (see photo below). On day two delegates were greeted by a jazz band in the registration area, thereby setting the scene each day for an extraordinary Event, and that it was!
For over 135 years, Melbourne Town Hall has held events right in the heart of Melbourne City. Did you know that Federation was debated here? Nellie Melba debuted? The Beatles greeted adoring fans? Will your Event be next?
Melbourne Town Hall’s grand interiors cater for events from 10 people to 2000 people. The main plenary of the Community Energy Congress was held in the Main Hall (pictured below) which holds up to 1990 delegates seated theatre style across two floors:
The Congress used the Swanston Hall on the level below the Main Hall, for it’s Exhibition and “Speed Date an Expert” sessions. The Condell Room and Hoddle Room on the same floor as the Main Hall were close at hand for two of the concurrent breakout sessions.
A flight of stairs and a lift made the Yarra Room, Regent Room, Supper Room, and Portico Room – with it’s famous Balcony looking out over bustling Swanston Street – easily accessible by delegates heading to the other two concurrent breakout sessions and various meetings, breakfasts and lunches held during the Congress.
