With Federal Government measures in place restricting public gatherings and social distancing requirements in order to protect the Australian public, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) has made the decision to temporarily close the Centre.

BCEC will close for the period commencing COB 3 April, Easter and school holiday break.

During this time, emails and phone calls will be monitored and urgent business matters will be actioned.

From 27th April, a small Business Continuity Team including some members of the Sales, Events and Operational Departments will return to work.

The safety and welfare of our guests, clients and all our team members and their families is of paramount importance to us and remains our top priority.


Events currently listed on our website’s What’s On page are being updated as information is confirmed.

Olio and Merivales will reopen when the Centre resumes trading.
