BCEC is the only convention centre in Australia with a dedicated boutique event hub. A unique collection of event spaces, designed for smaller and medium sized special occasions, such as the centre’s very popular Sky Room with private terrace and bar and spectacular city skyline views and Boulevard Room with its LED canopy and a kaleidoscope of lights for that ‘wow’ factor.

BCEC’s Plaza Gallery (the gold standard for VIP functions) is another option for those small- to medium-sized events. The Plaza Gallery, known as Brisbane’s best private dining room, is one of a kind – a unique and intimate event space surrounded by a priceless collection of Indigenous Art. The space can seat between 20 to 160 guests.
