Spice Hot 100 Winner in the 3 Category

30 March 2021

Voted by readers, Spice Magazine’s annual list of leading event venues across Australia and New Zealand included the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) as a winner in 3 categories.

These are:

  • Best In-House Catering at a Convention Centre
  • Best Venue for a Gala Dinner
  • Best Sustainable Venue

As winners in the ‘Best In-House Catering at a Convention Centre’ category, Spice readers acknowledge the incredible work GCCEC’s chefs do year-round out to provide fresh, quality offerings for events of all types. The Centre works hard to meet all event requirements, whether that’s catering for allergies or developing concepts that suit Covid-safe meal delivery.

GCCEC was also named the ‘Best Venue for a Gala Dinner’. With a vast range of halls, flexible arena space and central rooms, the Centre provides the perfect venue for a sit-down event that can cater anywhere between 10 – 2500 guests. A collaborative effort between GCCEC’s teams makes it possible to offer diverse and highly memorable events.

Lastly, the venue was titled ‘Best Sustainable Venue’. With platinum certification through EarthCheck’s benchmarking scheme (the leading environmental management program for the travel and tourism industry), GCCEC has committed to implementing various sustainable practices such as utilising grey-water as a conservation mechanism, adopting bio-degradable packaging, and partnering with food rescue organisations to minimise food waste.

After the challenges of 2020, it’s rewarding to know that GCCEC is being recognised for its efforts to overcome an unprecedented and unpredictable situation. GCCEC is committed to providing services that are of a high standard and make each event memorable for every client, delegate, and attendee.
