Build a Bike 2023

Spreading Joy on Two Wheels

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre recently hosted its highly anticipated annual Build a Bike event, a heartwarming initiative that not only brought the community together but also made a significant impact on deserving families in the local Gold Coast and Toowoomba region. In collaboration with Act for Kids, Mikes Bikes Gold Coast, Dreamweavers Event Productions and our dedicated suppliers, we are proud to announce that this year’s event resulted in a record-breaking donation of 86 bikes, just in time for Christmas.

Working with Act for Kids

Act for Kids, a renowned organisation dedicated to supporting at-risk families allowed us to channel our collective efforts towards a great cause, bringing joy and smiles to those who needed it the most during the festive season. The 86 bikes donated will undoubtedly make a significant difference in the lives of the recipient families, providing not only a means of transportation but also a source of joy and togetherness.

Community Unity

The Build a Bike event was not just about assembling bicycles; it was a celebration of community spirit and unity. Bringing together our local suppliers and clients, the event provided a unique platform for everyone involved to share a meal, exchange stories and enjoy a few laughs as we collectively wrapped up the year.

Record-Breaking Success

This year’s Build a Bike event exceeded all expectations, with a record high of 86 bikes assembled and donated. The generosity of our partners and the unwavering support from the local community showcased GCCEC’s commitment to making a positive impact beyond the confines of our venue. The success of the event is a testament to what can be achieved when like-minded individuals and organisations come together with a shared goal.

Looking Forward

As we reflect on the success of the Build a Bike event, we express our gratitude to Act for Kids, Mikes Bikes Gold Coast, Dreamweavers Event Productions and all our partners and community members who contributed to making this initiative a triumph. The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre remains committed to fostering community engagement and making a positive impact on the lives of those in need. We look forward to building on this success in the coming years and continuing to spread joy on two wheels.
