With the Australian borders now open, delegates and conferences are flooding into Cairns. The city will welcome over 25 conferences between now and December 2022 with over 8,000 delegates. These include the International Network for Social Network Analysis (SUNBELT), the Lowitja Institute International Indigenous Health and Wellbeing Conference, and the Australian Menopause Society Conference.
The Cairns Convention Centre has been refurbished and is ready for this busy post-pandemic era. Contemporary light interiors, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, and new building systems are meant to offer seamless conferences and more networking opportunities.
Janet Hamilton, General Manager Cairns Convention Centre, said: “It is exciting to welcome delegates back to the Centre and see their positive reaction to the refurbishment. The new contemporary design and colours integrate the Centre with our beautiful destination. The new expansion is going to bring new opportunities for events, with a large outdoor terrace looking across the stunning Trinity Inlet, which will certainly make for great networking and immersion into our tropical lifestyle.”
