In 2020, the APGA Convention and Exhibition is being held in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. Brisbane experiences warm weather all-year round, with a subtropical climate that ranges from dry, mild winters to hot, humid summers making it a perfect destination for both international and national visitors.
There is plenty to see and do in Brisbane. You can visit one of the city’s numerous museums and art galleries such as the Museum of Brisbane, Queensland Maritime Museum, Gallery of Modern Art and QUT Art Gallery. The best views can be found from the top of the Wheel of Brisbane, a 60-metre tall Ferris wheel found in the heart of the city. For a different experience you can climb the Story Bridge, one of only three bridges in the world that you can climb to the very top of. For a more relaxed option, explore the many dining options along the river from Eagle Street Pier to Kangaroo Point.
Queen Street Mall is the main shopping hub in Brisbane. You can find just about anything along here from high street stores to small boutiques and historic arcades. There are also many weekend markets around the city and the surrounding areas such as Sunday Discovery Markets in Rocklea, the Collective Markets South Bank in the South Bank Parklands, Riverside Markets in the city and plenty of farmers markets.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre for the 2020 APGA Convention.
The APGA Annual Convention will have a comprehensive social program to promote networking within the industry, including dinners, the traditional golf competition, tours and other special events. Partners are encouraged to attend outings which will be covered by their registration. Children up to and including 15 years of age are welcome to attend the day outings free of charge. Traditionally, four dinners are held throughout the Convention, each with its own distinct theme — Saturday’s relaxed Welcome Dinner, Sunday’s official Opening Dinner, the famous APGA Monday night Fancy Dress Dinner and Tuesday’s Black Tie APGA Annual Dinner.
