Melbourne Convention Host Hospitality Night: May 29, 2023

Rotarians who are registered for the Convention and live within an approximate 15 km radius of the CBD can apply to host between 4 and 8 international and interstate guests in their home for dinner.  Priority for hosting will be given to Registered Convention attendees but non-attendee Rotarians are also welcome to apply.



As a Home Host you will be responsible for arranging transport for your guests to and from your home.  You may want to consider involving others in your Club, or immediate family to assist in this process.  It is acceptable to have guests returned to their hotels by Taxi or Uber.

Hosts will receive $55 per guest (from the registration fee for this event) to help offset the costs of the dinner and transport.

These ever-popular Convention events fill quickly and we expect that Melbourne won’t be any different.  Clubs or a group of Clubs are invited to design their own event and dinner which can be at the same venue or two different venues. To minimise travel time venues should be within a 20 km radius of the CBD.  Guests are picked up by bus from their hotel and once onboard, an announcement about their destination is provided. Surprise!

Clubs will need to host guests in multiples of 50 (one busload) and have at least 5-10 hosting Rotarians & partners for each group of 50 at the dinner venue.  

Delegates registering for Host Hospitality will pay a flat charge to attend which will include their return bus trip.  Clubs will receive a contribution of $35pp towards the catering costs.   Drinks will need to be purchased on a cash basis at the bar.  Clubs should consider budgeting separately for any additional catering costs or entertainment.
