Venue: Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC)
The BCEC is a world-class venue over three levels situated at South Bank, the river heart of Brisbane, in a unique riverside cultural and entertainment precinct that includes the Queensland Performing Arts Complex, the Queensland Museum and Art Gallery, the State library and of course the renowned and celebrated Gallery of Modern Art. It is a stone’s throw to the Brisbane River and Southbank Parklands, where you can view Brisbane from the Brisbane Wheel, stroll, jog, scoot or ride along the boardwalk, take a swim at the Southbank beach, or chill out at one of the many cafes and restaurants. And it is only a short walk from Brisbane CBD.
It is perfect for the conference because:
- it is very accessible, with the train, bus and ferry arriving almost at the doorstep as well as street parking or under-cover parking at the venue
- there is ample space for the 300 or so delegates that are expected
- the venue will provide a fabulous sit-down lunch—no more trying to balance a handbag, conference bag, plate and drink as people edge past you
- there is plenty of nearby accommodation—hotels or apartments—in the South Bank area, or city hotels a stroll across the bridge.
