AIMC LOCKS IN 2015 DATES TO CELEBRATE 70TH BIRTHDAY
The Australian International Movie Convention (AIMC) 2015 will take place from October 11-15, with a supplementary symposium program on October 16.
2015 marks the 70th movie industry convention to be held in Queensland, with the event’s early roots back in the old Chevron Hotel on the Gold Coast.
Fittingly, the 70th birthday celebrations will take place on the Gold Coast, with AIMC 2015 to be held at the transformed, new-look Jupiters Hotel & Casino.
Jupiters is currently undertaking a $345 million transformation which, when complete, will deliver a new six-star hotel tower, a range of contemporary restaurants and bars and a transformation of all existing facilities, including a new poolside experience.
The AIMC is hosted annually by NACO (National Association of Cinema Operators-Australasia) and has become a valuable annual industry event for the Australian, NZ and Pacific region, as it offers those in production, distribution, cinema exhibition and allied trades an unparalleled opportunity to come together once a year.
NACO Executive Director, Michael Hawkins says: “We were delighted to welcome a record 985 delegates to AIMC 2014, 10% of whom were from overseas. I would hope to equal or better that when we celebrate the 70th convention in 2015, for which planning is already underway.”
Michael Hawkins added that any organisation or individual interested in loaning or donating AIMC memorabilia from the past 69 years should contact Freya Tienan – [email protected]
