Welcome to the National Convention Centre, Canberra, ‘Where the Nation Meets’.
Please note the National Convention will be closed from Friday 19 December, reopening on Monday 12 January 2015. We wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to working with you in 2015.
From its familiar symbols of Australian nationhood to its regional wineries and historic townships, the Canberra region has something special to offer every visitor.
Located in the Australian Capital Territory, the city offers access to influential national bodies, government contacts and it has a wealth of national monuments and attractions which give gala events that extra something.
The National Convention Centre is Canberra’s largest, purpose-built functions, meetings and events venue. Unrivalled in facilities, size and scope, the convention centre provides a collection of more than 15 spaces over two floors.
The National Convention Centre is conveniently located just 7km from airport and just minutes walk from a range of accommodation options and the city centre, with simple access to the very best Canberra attractions.
One of Australia’s few planned cities, Canberra is a place where architectural style complements the beauty of the surrounding Australian bush. Located on the ancient lands of the traditional owners, the Ngunnawal people, Canberra is thought to derive its name from the Aboriginal word Kamberra or ‘meeting place’.
Delegates will be at ease with the welcoming nature of the people who live and work in the national capital. Find out how truly hospitable Canberrans are—book your next event at the National Convention Centre and see why it’s ‘Where the nation meets’.
