The 124th LGAQ Annual Conference

The 124th LGAQ Annual Conference

The LGAQ Annual Conference is the Association's landmark event and will take place over three days in October.

Date: 19th October 2020 - 21st October 2020 Every day

Location: Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCEC) 2684-2690 Gold Coast Hwy, Broadbeach QLD 4218

Cost: Contact Us

This will be the 124th holding of the event and our host council this year is City of Gold Coast.

Annual Conference incorporates the LGAQ’s annual general meeting, drawing delegates from all 77 Queensland councils, while representatives of Federal and State governments, business and other sectors always ensure they are among the first to register.

Trade exhibitors at Annual Conference relish the chance to meet and do business with so many members of Queensland’s local government sector, from mayors, councillors and CEOs through to the officers who make councils’ big procurement calls. 

The event also brings together businesses owned by Queensland’s councils, sees the creation of a temporary electronic media facility and gives our members a golden opportunity to catch up with colleagues from across the state, take advantage of professional development sessions, and plan for the year ahead.

COVID-19 precautions 

Considerable planning has taken place – and daily monitoring continues – to ensure our 124th Annual Conference is safe for delegates and exhibitors, as well as LGAQ and venue staff.

LGAQ’s Events Team has completed Infection Control Training for COVID-19 and is fully briefed and up to date on the mass gathering restrictions. They are also working very closely with the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCEC) to ensure all COVID-Safe guidelines are met.

In line with GCEC’s COVID-Safe plan we will ensure that all attendees adhere to the below:

  • enforcing the 1.5m social distancing rule
  • limiting numbers on trade exhibition stands
  • provision of hand sanitiser and hand washing stations throughout the venue
  •   meals will come individually, pre-packed (no buffets).

We have also capped the total number of attendees able to attend.
