Academics urged to apply for GCCEC’s Linkage Grant Program
The annual program awards five grants valued at $5000 each to successful applicants, giving them the opportunity to attend major conferences in their respective industries, with the intention to showcase the GCCEC for future events.
GCCEC director of sales Michelle Mann said with each year the program strengthens the centre’s relationships with local and international academics, generating more international conference bookings at the GCCEC.
“We continue to build on strong relationships showcasing not only our outstanding facilities, but also the attraction of the Gold Coast as a preferred destination for both business and pleasure,” she said.
“Each year we receive a number of outstanding submissions with inspiration from across the board. Our applicants are highly motivational and truly showcase the city pride and a love for the Gold Coast and we are always excited to work with the winner to develop mutual benefits.”
Academics across every field of study are encouraged to apply online. Applications close March 31 2018.
