Brisbane’s newest convention centre set to celebrate a successful first year of business

The Royal ICC welcomed a number of high profile events in 2013.

BRISBANE – Brisbane’s new kid on the block, the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC), is pleased with its first 12 months of business and will celebrate its first anniversary on 2 March.

“We gauge the success not just on profitability, but repeat business and feedback from our customers, which has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Sue Hocking, General Manager, Venue Sales & Marketing.

The Royal ICC welcomed a number of high profile events in 2013 including the Queensland Tourism Awards, DUG International, National Radio Conference and Australian Commercial Radio Awards, Brisbane Boat Show, Brisbane Maserati Launch and the nationally televised 58th Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.

“We worked hard to provide our customers with a different level of service, flexibility, creativity and care and I believe this is what has really set us apart from the competition this year – as well as the stunning heritage design of the facility,” said Ms Hocking.

“The Royal ICC was well and truly tested in 2013 with so many diverse events in all categories and it has performed exceptionally.

“The space works well with the adjoining unique outdoor Plaza; and our kitchens (and chefs) managed back-to-back large scale events with ease and grace.

“Our investment in Australia’s only operable ceiling grid system was appreciated by our customers who were able to produce creative options, and at the same time save on budget and time in the set-up and pull down of event theming and lighting,” she said.

The Royal ICC is also looking forward to welcoming a number of new international and national clients in 2014 including the MOTO Expo, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, General Practice Education and Training (GPET), QLD Education Resources Expo and the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth (RASC) Conference.
