The Gold Coast will host the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN) in June 2023 with over 500 professionals, researchers and academics meeting for six days at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC).
“As a leading centre for technology, engineering and science, with our world-class hospitals, three universities, the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge precinct, the Gold Coast attracts valuable business events in these fields,” said GCCEC general manager Adrienne Readings.
The international bid submission was led by Professor Brijesh Verma, General Co-Chair of IJCNN 2023, and was supported by Tourism Australia, Tourism and Events Queensland and Destination Gold Coast.
Destination Gold Coast’s Head of Business Events Selina Sinclair said the Gold Coast is a hub for cutting-edge technology and skilled academics in computer science and machine learning.
“The Gold Coast is making waves in the engineering and science industries and we’re excited to host the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks in June,” she said.
“Our success in capturing business events, especially international association conferences, play a vital role in further propelling innovation, professional development and knowledge exchange in their respective sectors and industries while showcasing the appeal of the Gold Coast as a destination of choice to a new, multinational audience.”
Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison said IJCNN 2023 is another international event which has been secured for Australia with the support of the Business Events Bid Fund program.
“The Bid Fund helps to secure these events in the critical bidding phase and, to date, has played a role in Australia winning 89 events with a combined value of about $688 million, including this upcoming event on the Gold Coast,” she said.
