What's On

MESSAGE FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER

As we enter the final quarter of the 2017 calendar year it’s timely to look ahead to what is shaping up to be a busy three months with more than 35,000 delegates and members of the public set to attend 40 events ranging from trade shows, conferences, training days, graduations, end-of-year sales, a Melbourne Cup lunch, Centre of Christmas celebrations and even an MMA Fight Night.

The diverse types of upcoming events is indicative of the wide appeal of the GCCEC to event organisers looking for innovation, superior IT technology and AV capacity, strong sustainability practices as well as award-winning catering limited only by imagination.

GCCEC’s aim of providing the ultimate event experience underlines a strong outlook going into 2018 as we work towards leveraging the opportunities presented by the biggest sporting event in Australia this decade – the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

We’ll be ready to not only Share The Dream next year but to build on it and extend our own legacy.

Thank you for your continued support and faith in our team, venue and destination.
