Welcome to the Gold Coast


Destination Gold Coast 



AFIC is pleased to be partnering with Destination Gold Coast. Since the Gold Coast is home to an array of festivals; from music, to food, to major sporting events, it made perfect sense to hold the 2nd annual conference here.

Whether you’re looking at attending AFIC as a solo business traveller or bringing the whole family, the Gold Coast has something for everyone!  Please visit www.destinationgoldcoast.com for trip planning tips and information.
