One of Australia’s favourite leisure destinations is also a favourite place to hold events.
The AUD $167 million Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre is Australia’s largest regional convention centre conveniently located in Broadbeach, the heart of the Gold Coast.
The award-winning Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) is conveniently located in the heart of the Gold Coast, featuring a Main Arena, Exhibition Halls and Meeting Rooms catering for 10 to 6000 people.
It is Australia’s largest regional convention centre capable of handling corporate and association conferences and meetings, national and international incentives, banquets, exhibitions, concerts, sporting and special events.
Exclusive in size and purpose-designed, the Centre offers total wireless technology allowing delegates and visitors to log on to email and the internet from where ever they are in the venue.
The GCCEC also offers on-site in-house Audio-Visual services, as well as in-house marketing and public relations support and professional event management.
Just minutes away from the golden coastline where delegates can take a stroll or catch a break before their conference, world-class properties like The Star Gold Coast, the Sofitel Gold Coast and a selection of serviced apartments cater for every budget. The Centre is conveniently located 300m from the restaurant and shopping precinct of Broadbeach showcasing a village-like hub of leisure and entertainment.
As a leading sustainable events venue, the GCCEC became the first convention centre worldwide to be awarded EarthCheck Gold Certified status, the leading environmental management system in use by the travel and tourism industry.
