The venue will be the Southern Cross University's new building at the Gold Coast campus in Coolangatta at the southern end of the Gold Coast. It is 400 metres from North Kirra Beach and adjacent to the Gold Coast Airport. Following the Commonwealth Games earlier in the year, this conference and the new facilities on the Gold Coast make this conference a tempting destination.
