The NEXt Big Thing

Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Centre – an events and entertainment destination in the heart of a dynamic harbour city.

NEX is currently being developed into an unrivalled exhibition, convention and entertainment destination for world-class events. Contemporary design, flexible spaces and cutting-edge technology will combine to make NEX the obvious choice for touring superstars, event organisers, corporate or wedding planners.


Newcastle is a cosmopolitan harbour city located just 2 hours north of Sydney, right on the doorstep of the beautiful vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Here you’ll find spectacular beaches, hip bars, quirky boutiques, world-class restaurants and a booming arts scene. And that’s not all. As Australia’s second oldest city, there’s plenty of fascinating historical sites and stories to discover, and surprises around every corner.


NEX is located in the harbour city precinct just 2.4km from many spectacular Newcastle beaches and 8 minutes walk from the Port of Newcastle foreshore. NEX is close to funky cafes, hipster bars, parks and boutique shops.
