Brought to you by The Cairns Convention Centre

The Cairns Convention Centre is set to open its doors to the new 10,500-square-metre expansion. The new spaces will include a 400-seat plenary that can be divided into two, an exhibition space for 30 booths, three large meeting rooms that can be configured into multiple options, a new third level with a banquet room that can host 500 people, and an outdoor terrace with stunning views over the Trinity Outlet.

The new façade is inspired by the Wet Tropics Rainforest, and the contemporary light interiors highlight the region’s beauty. The Centre has also been fitted with state-of-the-art technology throughout.

The expansion will allow the Centre to comfortably host up to 2,500 delegates and multiple events at the same time, but this isn’t the only noteworthy change happening at this world class facility. With the additional meeting space also comes upgrades to the Centre’s audiovisual capabilities.

All meeting spaces are now outfitted with cameras offering pan tilt zoom control features perfect for hybrid events, while presenters will find digital lecterns with AV controls and built-in preview monitors for easy reference to presentation notes. State-of-the-art laser projectors in all meeting spaces also ensure that any visual aids are shown in sharp, high resolution. The level of AV integration within the venue rooms is outstanding and provides a high level of flexibility to meet the most demanding technology needs.

Overall, the Cairns Convention Centre is set to offer a brand-new experience for delegates, with its stunning expansion, high-tech equipment, and seamless integration between new and existing spaces.

Eco-conscious meeting planners will also find that Cairns & Great Barrier Reef’s new Reforest program makes carbon offsetting easy. The tool calculates the high-level carbon footprint of an event then determines how event organizers can offset this through local tree planting and revegetation programs, like the endangered Mabi rainforest which is the home of the Lumholtz tree kangaroo on the Atherton Tablelands.

Managed by global venue management company, ASM Global, the Cairns Convention Centre is everything you would expect from an international-standard convention venue located in one of the world’s most desirable destinations.
