One Day in Melbourne for 2018 was held on the 19 May at the Craigieburn Salvation Army, the same venue for next year 2019 – 75 Interlink Dr, Craigieburn, 20 minutes from Melbourne airport.
2019 will be the 4th annual One Day in Melbourne for mission publication editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers ….
The focus is on the forgotten Christian media, all those small publications – mostly on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience.
The top of the line presenters give their time at no cost so as to ensure such mission agencies received a thorough concordant.

2019 planning tea
The idea of One Day in Melbourne is that is is all on the same day – ie, one day in Melbourne. Many fly in and fly back out all on the same day, with a mid morning start and an early finish. We also realise others may make it a weekend in Melbourne and stay over for a myriad of purposes.
The new 2019 planning team met over the lunch break to initiate proceedings whereby the final session of this year were small groups discussing ideas for 2019.

The sessions are interactive whereby during presentations for responses. This is particularly important for mission publication editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers.
The focus is on the forgotten Christian media, all those small publications – mostly today on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience and therefore restrictions.
