For those of you who would like to continue socialising with fellow delegates we have reserved an area in two local venues: Plus 5 and The General Assembly

Venue 1
: Plus 5 
Location: 37 S Wharf Promenade, South Wharf VIC 3006
Plus 5 takes a little inspiration from the food traditions of Spain and Italy to bring wood fired tapas and pizza to the heart of South Wharf. Sip traditional and unique cocktails, graze on delicious sharers and tapas, or simply join us for a glass of wine at our lounge where great times are waiting to be had. 

Venue 2: The General Assembly 
Location: 29 S Wharf Promenade, South Wharf VIC 3006
Located a stone’s throw from the CBD, next door to the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre and with impressive city skyline and riverfront views, The General Assembly is now home to one of Melbourne’s eclectic street art installations. It is a buzzy waterside pub with exposed beams and pipes, delivering hefty steaks, cocktails and craft beer.
