Cairns Convention Centre is operating under a Site Specific COVID Safe Plan approved by Queensland Health. The Plan is integrated with ASM Global – VenueShield, the highest standard hygiene protocol, rolled out across 325 venues world-wide.

In order to meet the needs of our changing environment, the Centre has also developed the Cairns Convention Centre Safe Event Guidelines prepared specifically to assist organisers in the planning of events at the Centre. This document encompasses all the necessary health and hygiene safeguards to enable events to be held in a safe and secure environment.
