Features of the convention
The convention will be held on 27th to 31st of May 2023

Imagine it packed to the brim with over 25,000 Rotarians as they experience world-class speakers and entertainment selected to engage an international audience.

House of Friendship & Breakouts - Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
The HOC has planned several hundred booths exhibiting products and Rotary projects from across the globe.
The call for proposals for breakout sessions has already been circulated because the world needs to hear about your projects and high impact programs. Several breakout sessions allow you to have in depth discussions on important Rotary topics that provide information and advice from experts. And there are the affiliated events like the walk for polio, the golf fundraiser, special dinners and much more.
And the best part is meeting friends from all over the world. We’ve been kept apart by the pandemic and now we have a chance to come together again in our predominant annual event.
