The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre is conveniently located in the heart of Broadbeach, just 500 metres from pristine white sand beaches.

Why not bring the family and extend your stay!

The Gold Coast has so much to offer. The star attraction is its beaches, including the world-renowned stretch of sand at Surfers Paradise. Beyond the beaches, discover laid-back neighbourhoods, a booming culinary scene and the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks.
