GOLD COAST’S NEXT BIG EVENT
A RECORD number of meeting influencers, professional conference organisers and media representatives are expected to converge on Queensland for this year’s This Is Gold Coast Business Exchange, which kicks off tomorrow at the Gold Coast Exhibition Centre.
The three-day event, which will run from 31 May to 02 Jun, aims to showcase the region’s best venues, experiences and professional services, and will feature 68 hosted buyers from Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia.
Director of Gold Coast Business Events Anna Case said the event was an opportunity for the region to shine a light on its business offerings.
“Post Commonwealth Games, the city is buzzing with a revitalised spirit and infectious new energy, with so much on offer for conferences and meetings,” Case said.
“We’ll be showcasing it all, from our sun-kissed locations to our internationally acclaimed venues and creative spaces this event will leave no doubt that we’re the best choice for business events in Australia.”
Delegates will be treated to a welcome reception at street market Miami Marketta before moving on to breakfast at Mantra at Sharks Event Centre, the city’s newest hotel.
They will then have the chance to meet one-on-one with a range of exhibiting local companies, including suppliers from hotels, attractions and theming companies on the floor at the main event.
The program, which is an initiative of the Global Business Events division of Destination Gold Coast, will also get attendees up close and personal at a polo match at Polo by the Sea, as well as visiting various venues as part of the post-famil program.
