Hobart is an impressive destination for large events. More and more events of up to 1,100 delegates are discovering that Tasmania delivers events with big impact on experience, quality and value.
Not only can our beautiful city host events of over 1,000 delegates, but we do it really well.

Hobart’s accommodation capacity is expanding – new hotels soon to open include the ‘The Tasman’ Marriott Luxury Collection, Crowne Plaza, Mövenpick Hotel and Vibe Hotel, adding over 700 rooms to Hobart’s accommodation capacity.

With a dedicated plenary hall for 1,100 delegates, 11 flexible function rooms and space for 125 trade exhibition booths, Hobart Convention & Exhibition Centre (HCEC) is the ideal venue for your next event, be it association, corporate or franchise-based. Few locations offer such extensive facilities in such a unique location.

As the largest purpose-built conference and event facility in Tasmania, HCEC acts as the default convention centre for Hobart.
In conjunction with HCEC, the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart consistently provides exceptional service to conference and business events while continually adapting our business to industry needs, including technology and sustainability practices.

Don’t take our word for it,  Lexi Duncan, Encanta’s Director of Events, East Coast CEM, agrees:

“It is probably one of the easier cities to manage a conference of this size (1,000), everything is within walking distance, we are spoilt for choice with the venues for 1,000 plus delegates and the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, where we’ve been based for the week, has been really well equipped for an event of this size.”
