If it happens on the Gold Coast, it happens here!

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC), a $167 million masterpiece of innovation, is as ground-breaking in design as it is inspiring in its capabilities.

A premier Gold Coast venue where large-scale national and international conferences and exhibitions roll out seamlessly from beginning to end; a concert and sporting event destination where every seat is the best seat in the house; a place where the standard and presentation of every dish showcases the creativity and passion of its experienced team of award-winning chefs.

Located in the heart of Broadbeach, just 500 metres to the beach and walking distance to thousands of accommodation options, GCCEC is Australia’s largest regional convention centre.

GCCEC has a massive main arena, four exhibition halls, a range of meeting rooms and outdoor spaces that capture the warm, sub-tropical Gold Coast climate. It’s the destination-of-choice for conferences, exhibitions, concerts, trade shows, and events.
