The Venue

Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre

The AADA National Dealer Convention is a big event, so it is only appropriate that in 2018 we hold it in Australia’s largest regional convention centre, the $167 million Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC).

The GCCEC will provide a state-of-the-art substantive space in which to conduct all the activities required of a vibrant and active AADA Convention & Expo.

Conveniently located right in the heart of the Gold Coast, the GCCEC features a main arena, four exhibition halls and meeting rooms catering for as little as 10 and up to 6,000 people.

The Centre offers state of the art equipment and total wireless technology, allowing delegates and visitors to access the internet from wherever they are in the venue.

Situated in the heart of Broadbeach, just 500 metres from pristine white sand beaches, the GCCEC is perfectly situated for delegates to balance a working Convention with the opportunity to relax and unwind amid the natural beauty of one of Australia’s premium destinations.

In a prime position on the corner of the Gold Coast Highway and T E Peters Drive, the Centre’s car park entrance at the northern end of the building is easily accessible from traffic lights and the main driveway. The main entrance is accessible from the roundabout off T E Peters Drive, and the Centre is just a short walk from the accommodation delegates will enjoy either at The Star Gold Coast (formerly Jupiters) or the Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach.

The GCCEC is a world leading sustainable meetings and events venue, committed to the continued cultivation of environmental and social stewardship. The Centre adheres to the highest environmental practices for venues.

Since inception, the Centre has endeavoured to support eco-friendly efforts both operationally and in design. Over the past nine years, GCCEC has aligned its practices with EarthCheck, the world’s most recognised and largest environmental management program, designed for the travel and tourism industry.
