The configuration of the spaces lends itself to the possibility of exclusive hire providing an indulgent and memorable experience for clients and delegates.


The Royal ICC is a multipurpose venue capable of holding numerous catered events at any one time.

Location

Situated inside the historic Brisbane Showgrounds, the Royal ICC is ideally located just 1.5 kms from the CBD, close to 3-5 star hotels, and just 15 minutes from Brisbane’s domestic and international airports. Situated close to Brisbane’s popular café, entertainment, music and dining precincts of James Street, New Farm, Teneriffe, Newstead and Fortitude Valley where there is something to suit all tastes in entertainment and cuisine.

A range of public transport options are easily accessible.

Accommodation

The new 4.5 star Rydges hotel is located directly across from the Royal ICC, along with what will be Brisbane's newest and most vibrant café strip - King Street.

The contemporary 208 room Rydges hotel adds another dimension to events within the Brisbane Showgrounds precinct, offering the new Paddock Bar and Six Acres restaurant along with a gym and swimming pool. The addition of the new Rydges hotel means Royal ICC guests will now have the option of onsite accommodation.

Additionally, there is a variety of 2-5 star alternative accommodation options located within close proximity to the Royal ICC.

Catering Information

Royal ICC is the only centre in Australia that can offer clients award-winning food and wine carefully selected from some of the nation’s most prestigious competitions. Nowhere else can you enjoy produce awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in our Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show (RQFWS) and the iconic Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).

With an abundance of award-winning Queensland and Australian produce on our doorstep and world-class chefs in our kitchens, the Royal ICC offers beautifully crafted menus showcasing the best of the best.

The Royal ICC develops relationships with farmers, winemakers and small producers to ensure we have access to the finest from paddock to palate. Seasonality, locality and quality are the driving forces behind the Royal ICC’s culinary philosophy.

Technical Facilities

Meetings and events function most effectively when they are supported by the highest level of audio visual technology. Microhire, operating as an independent contractor within Royal ICC, provide a number of specialist services to assist in keeping your audience informed and entertained.

A unique structural feature within Royal ICC is the operable ceiling grid system. The first in Australia, the system offers key features that benefit our clients and their events. Comprising 36 operable grids, each featuring 3 phase and 15amp power, capable of carrying a sizeable weight load. Grids are lowered by remote control, the system enables timely installation of technical equipment from a safe floor level work height, and allows for faster and easier hanging of banners and key event signage.

Accolades

Des Houghton, one of Queensland’s most respected food critics, described his 2014 Royal ICC dining experience as:

“Those of us fortunate enough… were treated to what may have been one of the best meals ever served in this state in ages. It was a celebration of outstanding Australian produce which won the gold medals at the Ekka food and wine judging. And most of it was from Queensland. There was hot smoked barramundi and painted crayfish, avocados, rainforest fingerlimes and Gatton spuds. There was JBS grass-fed eye fillet from the Darling Downs and a Kingaroy peanut butter and milk chocolate mousse served with Jaffa ice-cream. The chefs excelled themselves.”
