Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) has held its first event since reopening earlier this month, one of the first venues in Australia to reopen since the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Centre played host to the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) Queensland State of the State Lunch on Thursday, with Queensland Premier and minister for trade, Annastacia Palaszczuk, the keynote speaker.
Event attendance was capped at 260 attendees and took place in the Centreâ€™s refurbished Plaza Ballroom, adhering to social distancing regulations. There was an interactive livestream of the event to a virtual audience of 1,500.
BCEC has 140 event bookings through to the end of the year with a number of conferences and exhibitions on the agenda, as well as local events including corporate meetings. BCEC is working closely with clients to successfully deliver these events according to Covid Safe guidelines.
