We Are Back Open For Business


It is with great pleasure that we are in a position to advise that we are back open for business!

The Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre (TECC) has received approval from the Townsville Public Health Unit to operate under its Site Specific COVID Safe Plan. Developed in consultation with the TECC COVID Safe Task Force, industry bodies, government and health authorities, the plan covers all essential areas of operation including cleaning and hygiene, social distancing – with new floor plans, food and beverage service, training and record keeping. We are confident in our plan and the processes that we have implemented to ensure the safety of all visitors to the TECC.

The venue could potentially host events up to 2,400 visitors per day based on the social distance floor plans.  The arena that could normally hold up to 5,500 now has a COVID safe capacity of between 500 and 2,400 people depending upon the type of event. Also, meetings and business events that can no longer take place in smaller venues can now look to the Centre. We are all looking forward to welcoming events and business back to the Centre and we are in a unique position in Townsville to be able to accommodate larger events such as graduations, speech nights, conferences, meetings and dinners adhering to current distancing regulations.

The Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre are committed to the health and safety of our guests and team members. Our COVID Safe Plan integrates best practice protocols across all areas of the business to ensure the ultimate event experience in a COVID safe venue. Approved by the Townsville Public Health Unit, the plan covers

  • Social Distancing floor plans
  • Heightened hygiene practices
  • Installation of hand sanitizer stations
  • Increased regularity of cleaning and disinfecting
  • COVID-19 Team training and Education
