Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre officially opened in June 2004, providing the Gold Coast with its first and Queensland with its third convention centre. The Centre features 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.
This location right in the heart of the Gold Coast will allow delegates the opportunity to combine business with vacation.
We are pleased to announce that our venue for DAA 2019 is one of the first venues in the world to achieve the coveted EarthCheck Platinum Certification!
The GCCEC is also passionate about minimising food waste and works closely with OzHarvest, the national food rescue organisation. Since 2014, more than 4,800kg of food has actively been donated to needy members of the Gold Coast community. Additionally, the GCCEC works with food suppliers to change the packaging of goods to more sustainably friendly or recyclable options. These initiatives, among many others, have saved enough waste going to landfill to fill 76 shipping containers or 21,030 wheelie bins over 10 years.
