Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

Calling all conferences

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre has five interconnecting halls each of 5,000m² capable of providing column freespace of 25,000m². The world’s largest hyperbolic paraboloid roofs span over 100m and provides ceiling heights ranging from 14m to 22m. There are 15 meeting rooms from 30m² to 1,000m² and a ballroom of 2,200m² that are serviced by bars, restaurants, lounges and state-of-the-art service facilities. Parking for 1,600 cars is provided.

Innovative ideas

To satisfy the column free space requirement and loads to be suspended on the roof structure, Leighton Contractors’ team designed the world’s largest hyperbolic paraboloid roof. The Leighton Contractors management system enabled timely decision making regarding the functional design and procurement of the latest generation technology possible. The success of the centre is supported by the significant number of both national and international design awards it has received.
