The ninth This is Gold Coast 2023 (TIGC23) wraps today, with the three day program coinciding with the appointment of Destination Gold Coast’s new Head of Business Events, Brooke Campbell.
Campbell brings a wealth of global experience to the role having recently led multi-faceted programs to drive growth in the New Zealand International Convention Centre.
Campbell said she is thrilled to relocate to the Gold Coast to promote the city’s elevated business events offering both nationally and globally.
“Whether you are looking for luxury venues like The Langham, relaxing in nature by Tallebudgera Creek, or connecting with Indigenous culture at Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre, the Gold Coast has it all and makes it easy to meet on the Gold Coast,” she said.
TIGC23 welcomed around 80 event organisers from Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia for a full-day tradeshow at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre as well as a series of networking events and activations at multiple venues across the Gold Coast.
Destination Gold Coast Interim COO Rachel Hancock said the Gold Coast “is on the move” thanks to investment in new business, technology and infrastructure.
“Which allows for event organisers to tap into the strength of these developed key sectors for partnerships and subject matter experts,” she said.
“TIGC23 is a key event on our annual calendar, providing the business events industry with a platform to connect with our local tourism partners with more than 900 meetings scheduled.”
