Highlighting the precinct’s commitment to creating culturally relevant and social-worthy experiences for it’s visitors, Melissa Polglase, Marketing Manager commented: “Melbourne Central’s approach for this VAEFNO was inspired by what’s trending with millennials on social and in-store. We’ve used that inspo to create must-visit spaces that enhance their night.
