Good shows, just some of the volunteer staff need to retire or look like they are not bored. Think they need to be more welcoming and one in particular was quite rude

Growing up in Mackay, I have seen the dramatic changes the MECC has gone through. It is a cultural hub for the Mackay's artistic, and hosts a variety of national and international artists annually.

I have attended many functions at the MECC including balls, rock concerts, ice skating, travel expo and careers markets. It has a very professional booking agency, cafe and lots of foyer space. Great local asset.

The MECC has been in use for a bit over 2 years now and is a good flexible venue. We've been there for concerts, for conferences and seminars and for travel shows. They can change it around well.

Top spot to see excellent entertainment and world famous shows. There is a restaurant which opens prior to most shows (Bookings essential) and a snack bar where you can buy sandwiches, cakes, tea/coffee etc.
