Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre
Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia


The location for INTELEC® 2017 is the stunning Gold Coast in the Australian state of Queensland. Shaped by 57kms of sun-drenched beaches and more than 100,000 hectares of World-Heritage listed rainforest, the Gold Coast’s continues to deliver a conference destination that is unrivalled in diversity and distinct in flavour.

Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre

GCCEC is Australia’s largest regional convention centre, capable of handling corporate and association conferences and meetings, national and international incentives, banquets, exhibitions, concerts, sporting and special events.


Queensland, the state of Australia that is hosting the conference, offers something for every traveller, with the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef, hundreds of sun-kissed beaches, lush rainforests and the rugged Outback. Nicknamed the Sunshine State, it enjoys warm weather and has a sizeable portion of its state area in the tropics.

No trip to Queensland would be complete without a visit to Queensland’s tropical north, home of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest and Riversleigh Fossil Fields. Few places on earth can boast such unique natural attractions in close proximity with the Great Barrier Reef offering an underwater treasure trove of dazzling coral and sea life, and the superb tropical rainforests stretching down to the ocean shore.

Australia is a land of many opportunities for visitors.
