The Hobart Convention & Exhibition Centre (HCEC) at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart is Tasmania’s premier conference & events venue.  As the largest purpose-built conference and event facility in Tasmania, we have a space to suit and the experience you can count on to ensure the success of your event.

Located in the heart of Hobart’s historic and picturesque working waterfront, delegates can’t help but feel that they’re somewhere different and special. A short walk from HGCH are a range of offsite social function venues, attractions and overflow accommodation options.  Getting around a conference city has never been this easy.

With facilities that include a plenary for 1,100 delegates, 11 flexible function spaces and space for 125 trade exhibition booths, HCEC is the ideal venue for events, be it association, corporate or franchise based.

HCEC consistently provides exceptional service to conference and business events while continually adapting the business to industry needs, including technology and sustainability practices.

At HCEC we pride themselves on being the convention centre that does big things for its clients.  They are all about providing personable and memorable service, focused on all levels of the event from delegates to client to the event manager. Our speciality is bringing the destination into the event, using local produce and suppliers to heighten the delegate experience.
