Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison said IJCNN 2023 is another international event which has been secured for Australia with the support of the Business Events Bid Fund programme: "Business events are such an important part of our visitor economy and, with the support of the Bid Fund, it is great to see we are continuing to build a strong pipeline of future events for Australia."

"The Bid Fund helps to secure these events in the critical bidding phase and to date has played a role in Australia, winning 89 events with a combined value of about $688 million, including this upcoming event on the Gold Coast."

Adrienne Readings, general manager, GCCEC, and chair of Destination Gold Coast said, "as a leading centre for technology, engineering and science, with our world-class hospitals, three universities, the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge precinct, the Gold Coast attracts valuable business events in these fields."
