Australia: The Gold Coast On the Up

In partnership with:

Gold Coast has recorded an impressive result in the latest 2014 Global International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) meetings table, ranking equal fourth in Australia (with Adelaide), ahead of Perth, Canberra and Cairns, and only behind the state capitals of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

In 2014, Gold Coast doubled the number of events qualified by ICCA attracting 16 international association conferences.

Gold Coast now ranks 152 out of 2246 cities in over 90 countries worldwide that have reported into ICCA, higher than Las Vegas, Monte Carlo, Honolulu, Osaka and Houston.
