The Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct (GCHKP) has extensive amenities that can cater to a broad range of health and medical related events – from international conferences to satellite meetings, local industry workshops and forums. Many of the Precinct’s facilities have been designed with the health and medical industry’s requirements in mind and to take advantage of the opportunity to collaborate with the precinct partners, clinical specialisations and research expertise.

There is strong commitment to invest in the future of the Precinct – with investment exceeding $5 billion including new research and university facilities, a world-class teaching hospital, private hospital, allied medical facilities, main road infrastructure and light rail.

Venues are situated across the rapidly growing precinct at Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH), Griffith University, Southport Sharks and Gold Coast Private Hospital. Venues offer state-of-the-art technology, flexible configurations, several hireable indoor rooms and outdoor locations to meet the requirement of your next event or training needs.
