GCCEC wins at Queensland Tourism Awards as it pushes case for expansion

Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) has been recognised as the State’s leading Business Event Venue, winning gold at the 2019 Queensland Tourism Awards on Friday night.

“This accolade amongst tough competition is testament to the hard work of the entire staff across all areas of business,” said Adrienne Readings, general manager at GCCEC.

“Our mission is to offer an exceptional experience for our clients and their attendees, through 5-star service, innovation and commitment to best practices.”

The Centre is managed by The Star Entertainment Group, which has worked with the State Government on a business case for a proposed expansion of the GCCEC.

“Big conventions play a significant part in building the reputation and appeal of the Gold Coast, so any future expansion would enable the Centre to compete with larger venues to host some of the world’s biggest technology conventions, performances and events,” Readings said.
