When and where is MICE2023?
MICE2023 will take place from Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 August, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).
How do I get tickets?
Tickets can be purchased online before the event, or at the door.
Tickets purchased at the door will be charged at an onsite rate. We recommend attendees pre-book their tickets online for the best price, and easy entry onsite.
I'm a member of the public. Can I attend?
Yes! While MICE is a predominantly B2B expo, members of the public are welcome to attend on Saturday 19 August.
Can I bring my children?
MICE is an industry event, and it’s important to remember that people are there to conduct business. Children are allowed onsite during show hours as long as they are within the reach of their parent or guardian at all times.
Children under 16 do not need a ticket to attend. Children 16 and over must be registered with a ticket to attend.
Please note: no children under 16 are allowed onsite during bump in or bump out.
Can I bring my children?
You’ll get access to 180+ exhibitors showcasing everything from coffee beans to espresso machines, café furniture to milk and milk alternatives, and roasting equipment to ancillary supplies.
MICE is full of free samples and exhibitors selling their merchandise and wares.
How do I get to the venue?
I can't attend anymore. Can I get a refund?
Tickets to MICE are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled or postponed. Name changes will be accepted at any point prior to the first day of the event. Contact the MICE team to arrange a name change.
I have a different question. Who can I ask?
