Australia’s leading video games retailer, EB Games, is proud to announce EB Expo is returning home to the Gold Coast in 2017. Gaming will be back in paradise, bringing the global gaming community to Queensland once again. EB Expo is Australia’s premier gaming and entertainment event.

EB Expo has consistently been the first place to play blockbuster games before release in Australia. It is known for show casing world-renowned guests such as the voice of Mario Charles Martinet, Phil Spencer from Xbox, Ed Boon of Mortal Kombat fame, and Peter Moore from Electronic Arts.



Age Restriction Policy:

The EB Expo is an MA15+ event and will feature restricted R18+ content.

Tickets cannot be purchased by customers under the age of 15.  A parent or guardian can purchase a ticket for both their minor and themselves if accompanying the minor at all times during the event. Valid photo ID (a current driver’s license, passport or proof of age card) may be required at time of purchase. 

Children under 10 years of age receive free entry and must also be accompanied by an adult. 

All guests will be age checked and will require valid photo ID (a current driver’s license, passport or student proof of age card) when entering the EB Expo precinct. Guests may be spot-checked during the event for valid photo ID by security.

Guests under the age of 15 years must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian at all times when entering the EB Expo precinct. If a minor is found unaccompanied inside the EB Expo precinct the police may be called.

Guests over the age of 15 but under the age of 18 will be given an MA15+ OKAY TO PLAY wristband. Guests over the age of 18 will be given an R18+ OKAY TO PLAY wristband. The OKAY TO PLAY wristband will allow express access to MA15+ and R18+ content inside the EB Games EXPO.

Guests without relevant identification will be unable to play MA15+ and R18+ games.

MA15+ content is restricted to guests 15 years and older. Although an adult parent or guardian can consent for their underage minor to experience MA15+ content, exhibitors reserve the right to censor MA15+ regardless of consent. Content that will be censored to guests 15 years and younger will be advised on the EB Expo website. It is for this reason that a valid MA15+ OKAY TO PLAY wrist band may be required in order to access MA15+ content.

R18+ content is restricted to guests aged 18 years and over.

R18+ content will operate within an enclosed environment and a valid R18 OKAY TO PLAY wristband is required to enter these R18+ restricted areas. 

What Our Clients Say

I have conducted two major formal dinners at GCCEC for approx 700 people each time, the more recent of these being held in March 2015. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of working with GCCEC and their performance in presenting our function. They were completely professional and were willing to do things exactly the way I wanted them done, even meeting some unusual requirements. When I requested to make layout changes only hours before the dinner the request was accommodated immediately and with professional ease. The dinner was an alternate drop three course full service meal with drinks package, and it was without a doubt the best formal dinner I have ever attended. I have managed many similar dinners in the past but this dinner achieved by far the best result, it was the easiest to organise and to then manage on the night. Our GCCEC functions manager was a competent and willing professional who achieved an absolutely flawless event. I am still trying to understand how the catering staff were able to prepare almost 700 perfectly cooked and presented meals and get them to the tables whilst still hot. An excellent event perfectly presented by cheerful and competent professional staff.

Chairman, 5RAR Assoc Inc 50th Anniversary Reunion Committee

We have held our major event, the Conference of Major Superannuation Funds (CMSF), at the GCCEC on six occasions since it opened in 2004. Through holding our event at the GCCEC we have established a terrific relationship with the venue. Each and every staff member works tirelessly to ensure that our event is run to the highest calibre. Any task, no matter how little or large is undertaken to ensure our expectations are met and our event is delivered successfully.

AIST Events Team

It’s the small things that make such a big difference. My organisation has held its conference annually at GCCEC since 2008, during which I’ve experienced unparalleled service. I continue to be amazed by the dedication, friendliness and professionalism of all staff – be it sales and event management to back of house and floor staff. They know my event inside and out, making the experience seamless. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every conference I’ve held here!

You guys did it again! It is such a pleasure to work with a dedicated, proactive and friendly team. Your can-do attitude, your attention to detail and your willingness to try something new all help to make our lives easier and to keep our event fresh and interesting. Once again, the food was superb and the level of service provided by everyone at the centre was exceptional.

Julie Hood

There is no doubt that next time we need to be ‘creative’ on the Gold Coast; the GCCEC is the only venue we’d choose. No matter how difficult or unusual our demands prior to the event, nothing proved impossible for you and during the conference your professionalism and attention to detail ensured that everything ran without a hitch enabling us to focus properly on the job in hand. Last, but not least, the catering was superb!
