World-class venue in the heart of the North West Coast
The paranaple convention centre is a contemporary, purpose built conferencing centre in the heart of the North-West Coast.
Whether you are planning a half day seminar or a week-long conference, we can make sure your event is successful and memorable for all involved.
The jewel of our venue is the large, 800 square metre auditorium with spectacular north facing floor to ceiling windows taking in view of the Mersey river out to Bass Strait.
The main auditorium can be configured into three separate rooms, and we have a number of break-out rooms throughout the centre and neighbouring arts centre, including a 400 seat proscenium arch theatre for keynote or panel presentations.
An events manager room is onsite, with live-stream video, kitchenette and toilet facilities.
Audio-visual equipment includes a 270 inch LED presentation screen with multi-panel configuration options, concert quality PA and multiple in-floor power and data traps.
A 4-tonne freight elevator takes bulky items, including vehicles, direct from the outside, undercover loading bay, directly on to the conference centre floor for easy access.
Excellent catering, reflecting the diversity and quality of the local produce is provided in-house by Elevate Catering.
Adjacent to the centre, is a 500-space multilevel car park, taxi rank and bus zone, connecting people to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal and Devonport Airport.
