goes above and beyond for organisations, planners and delegates, creating lasting social and community impacts in one year alone (December 2013 – December 2014) MCB achieved a world-first, hosting five of the world’s largest health conferences.

It has just encouraged us to work even harder and come back next year with increased fervour. I am very thankful to City of Melbourne to recognise our humble efforts and to all sponsors and partners for their support.
Even though Mind Blowing Films didn’t win at the Melbourne Awards, Indian Film festival of Melbourne won with support, love & so many experiences.
