GCCEC wins gold at tourism awards

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) has been named the nation’s number one Business Event Venue at the Australian Tourism Awards in Canberra on Friday night.

GCCEC was up against strong competition from venues including Adelaide Hills Convention Centre, National Convention Centre, DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade in Darwin, Fairmont Resort and Spa Blue Mountains, Geelong Cats Higher Mark, Pullman Bunker Bay and The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel.

“The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre attracts large business events that play a significant role in bringing visitors to the Gold Coast,” said GCCEC general manager Adrienne Readings.

“The team at GCCEC delivers an exceptional experience, that translates to strong reputation, healthy occupancy and in turn, economic benefit for the region. I’m fortunate to work in an industry that I’m passionate about and can’t wait to share the award with the team at GCCEC.”
