Cairns is the largest city in Far North Queensland and is a popular destination for conference and event organisers. Cairns is home to an International Airport with regular services from all over Australia, making it a destination that is easy to access for local, interstate and international delegates.

Cairns features a variety of conference venues from the large and luxurious Pullman Reef Casino or The Sebel Cairns that can host many hundreds of delegates along with Exhibitions, Trade Displays and elaborate Gala Dinners, to the business class hotels with well respected names such as Rydges, Novotel and Holiday Inn that are well suited to smaller conferences, training programs, strategy meetings and seminars.
