The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre has been given the tick of approval to begin operating again.
They’ve developed a new Site Specific COVID Safe Plan, which has got the green light from the state government.
Under the plan, as many as 4,500 visitors could come through the centre each day based on the one person per four square metres.

New floor plans, food and beverage service, training and record keeping practices will be adopted as well.
The arena area that could normally hold up to 6,000 people will now only be able to hold between 1,500 and 3,000.
The Centre is now calling for companies wanting to hold meetings and business events that can no longer do so in smaller places to consider the Centre as another option.
The General Manager Adrienne Readings says they’re looking forward to getting back to work.
“We are all looking forward to welcoming business back to the Centre after months of getting the building and business COVID safe.
“We are confident in our plan and the processes that we have implemented to ensure the safety of all visitors to GCCEC.
“We’re in a unique position on the Gold Coast to be able to accommodate larger events such as graduations, conferences, meetings and dinners adhering to current distancing regulations,” Ms Readings said.
