Laracon AU 2024 is heading to Brisbane, Queensland

Last updated on by

Laracon Australia will be bringing you more than ever before in a new city at a bigger venue; the QUT Gardens Theatre, situated at the Queensland University of Technology's Gardens Point Campus, right in the heart of the Brisbane CBD.

To make the most of your conference experience, it is suggested that you arrive in Brisbane by 5 pm on Wednesday 6th November and depart after 8 pm on Friday 8th November.

Tickets will go on sale next Tuesday 14th May, with blind and early bird pricing available in limited quantities.


To help make the most of these improved networking opportunities throughout the day, tea and coffee on arrival, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided on both days of the conference.

Watering Holes

The excitement of seeing old friends, meeting online friends for the first time, and making new friends at a conference is a really big part of the conference experience.

It can also be a bit of a headache coordinating who to meet up with, when, and where.

This year we've arranged venues and food and drink specials to bookend the conference, so catching up with friends will be a breeze!

Details to follow for those interested in taking part.

After Dark

The ever-popular evening networking event is back, bigger, and better than ever.

In addition to bowling, escape rooms, and karaoke, this year will also include pool tables, laser tag (for real!), and mini golf.

Food and drinks will be on us, so all you need to do is enjoy unwind after a day of amazing talks.

High Tide

Everybody should have the same opportunities to mingle and reflect on talks from the second day of the conference as they did the first.

To that end, we'll be hosting a post-conference networking event for the first time in Room Three Sixty on campus, immediately following the conclusion of day two this year.

Finger food and refreshments will be on us in a low key event, set against a Brisbane sunset.

Accommodation & Travel

The conference experience should be as stress-free as possible for our attendees and we've worked with a number of operators across eight properties near to the conference venue.

The preferred - and closest - property is Brisbane Skytower, which is just a 10-minute walk through the beautiful Brisbane City Botanic Gardens away.

Check out the website for more details on the location of each of these properties and discounts on best available rates.

We've also arranged discounted travel with AirTrain for return trips between Brisbane airport and CBD.

Telegram Chat

All attendees this year will have access to our official Telegram chat and announcements channels to keep up to date with all things Laracon AU.

This is something that was community-run last year, but we wanted to give everybody the same opportunity to network before and during the conference in a central way.

If you want to be notified as soon as tickets go on sale, be sure to jump on the website and sign up to the newsletter.
