Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre successfully hosts G20 World Leaders Summit

Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC), host venue for the 2014 G20 World Leaders Summit, is Australia’s most awarded convention venue.

Internationally, it is consistently ranked among the world’s top three convention centres.

Serviced by domestic and international airports, with 32 airlines operating more than 3500 international and domestic flights each week, and more than 12,500 accommodation rooms across the city, Brisbane provides a stand-out location for international and Asia Pacific conferences.

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC), located in South Bank – a lively riverside cultural and dining precinct in the heart of the city – is the jewel of Brisbane’s convention infrastructure.

With premium event facilities, the centre’s $140m boutique expansion (opened in January 2012) has already enhanced the centre’s reputation.

An overall 52 per cent increase in convention space, including two additional tiered auditoria for smaller and medium-sized meetings, establishes the BCEC as Australia’s most flexible venue.

The centre can cater for from 80 to 8000 people and is renowned for its high standards of personal service and operational excellence.

BCEC was recently awarded the title of Worldwide Convention Centre Team of the Year by the London-based publication, Convention & Incentive Travel (C&IT).

On the centre’s doorstep is Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), State Library of Queensland, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre and the South Bank’s retail and restaurant precinct.

This cultural precinct is a regular host of markets, cultural displays and community events.

Conveniently located just minutes from the CBD, this is an impressive part of the world to facilitate the discussion of ideas and showcase your business and industry.
