Gold Coast Shines with More Association Conferences

Gold Coast has recorded a 19 per cent increase in association meetings for the twelve months to 30 June 2018. Data compiled for the Queensland Business Events Survey (QBES*) has indicated that 313 associations met on the Gold Coast in the last financial year, higher from the 263 conferences recorded in the previous twelve months.

Anna Case, Executive Director of Business Events, said the city appeals to associations because of the diverse offering of the destination and the welcoming warmth extended to delegates when they meet on the Gold Coast.

The positive results look set to continue with conferences confirmed such as the Australian Archaeological Association with 400 delegates in 2019, the 28th World Congress for Medical Law with 400 delegates in 2022, the National Franchise Convention with 500 delegates in 2019 and the 9th World Rett Syndrome Congress with 350 delegates in 2020.
