Merivales Café on the Ground Floor behind the escalators. There are baristas located strategically all around the venue (and on quite a number of exhibitors stands). Most importantly, the Plaza Terrace is located on the upper level. If you haven’t been there before it’s time you did. This must be one of the best known meeting places in Australia for the transport industry, even though it’s only open every two years. If you can’t find your mate in the exhibition halls, that’s because they’ve found a cosy corner to have a yarn on the Plaza Terrace. Don’t forget the Piano Bar. It’s a chilled out spot on the Mezzanine Level to have a drink, a bite to eat and listen to some laid-back tunes before tackling the next level. Alternatively if you’re looking for somewhere to discreetly negotiate a deal on your next piece of equipment – this might just be your spot. BCEC is renowned for its great food and beverage service.
