The AHRI National Convention and Exhibition is excited to return to Brisbane after a hugely successful event in 2016. Queensland is known as Australia's playground and Brisbane as its capital has so many experiences to discover.

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) is located in South Bank, Queensland, adjacent to Brisbane's CBD. There are two entrances to the BCEC: Grey Street and Merivale Street.

Located in the heart of the South Bank precinct, the centre is accessible to hotels, restaurants and public transport and is surrounded by leading arts institutions. Visit the BCEC website for maps, public transport (click here for a travel alert), parking options and more.
