IBECC will be held in Cairns, which has access to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics, which includes the iconic Daintree Rainforest.


Cairns is the gateway to the only place on the planet where two UNESCO World Heritage Areas listed for their natural values sit side by side: the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics, which includes the Daintree rainforest. 

Cairns is the heart of Tropical North Queensland, a vibrant city that blends a laid-back tropical sensibility with a buzzing multicultural lifestyle. From the utterly relaxing to the downright breathtaking, Cairns offers diverse activity options for delegates to mix business with pleasure. Over 600 tours depart daily for visits to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforest, palm fringed tropical islands and the alluring outback, all offering outstanding opportunities for lasting memories.
