Opened in June 2004, the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) is the Gold Coast’s first and only purpose built convention centre.

Centrally and conveniently located in Broadbeach, the GCCEC is a five minute drive from the main tourist hub of Surfers Paradise, a one hour drive from Brisbane Airport, and a 20 minute drive from Gold Coast Airport.

The GCCEC is joined to five star Conrad Jupiters Hotel and Casino by a covered walkway. A monorail link connects to the five star Sofitel Hotel and the Broadbeach shopping, dining and entertainment precinct. The pristine Gold Coast surf beaches and Pacific Fair shopping centre are within easy walking distance of the centre, and the popular theme parks and hinterland region are within a few quick kilometres of the centre.

The GCCEC features two levels and 7,000 square metres of space comprising of a divisible Arena (Auditorium), three Central Rooms and two Exhibition Halls on the ground floor, and nine Meeting Rooms upstairs on the first floor. The GCCEC can cater for 10 to 6,000 delegates and all types of events – from award ceremonies, gala dinners, product launches and cocktail receptions, to meetings/ conferences,  concerts, exhibitions and sports. A secretariat, green room, large spacious foyers and outdoor areas complete the space. A 3,000m2 extension is planned in the next couple of years.

Boutique in size and flexible in design, the GCCEC offers wireless communication throughout, on-site catering that is HACCP compliant, audio visual services by industry leaders Staging Connections, in-house public relations and marketing services, event management, ticketing and car/coach parking.

Within the centre’s first two years of operation it won a number of prestigious awards including Best Meeting Venue Over 500 Delegates, Event of the Year, and Best Venue Caterer for two years in a row! The GCCEC has the unique ability to cater for authentic Indian cuisine which has attributed to much of our success to date from the India market.

We invite you to Experience the Difference!
