Australia's premier helicopter exhibition and conference RotorTech will find a new home on the Gold Coast.

The next scheduled event in 2024 will be held at the RACV Royal Pines resort, relocating from the current site at the Royal International Conference Centre in Brisbane.

Justin Giddings, CEO of organiser AMDA Foundation yesterday said the move to Royal Pines will enable RotorTech to expand and provide easier access for landing and displaying helicopters and uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) on site.

RotorTech 2022, currently underway in Brisbane, features no aircraft at all.

“RotorTech 2024 will take place at the five-star RACV Royal Pines Resort on the beautiful Gold Coast, in a region with the highest density of helicopters and operators in the nation,” Giddings said.

“Royal Pines will provide both the relaxed social atmosphere for which this event is renowned, and the professional conference and exhibition amenities needed to stage a world-class industry exposition.

“The Gold Coast location will enable visitors to land and display helicopters without the issues of operating in and out of a capital city centre. It will also allow space for RotorTech to include uncrewed aerial systems demonstration flights.”

RotorTech combines an industry exhibition with conference programs from both the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA) and the Australian Association for Uncrewed Systems (AAUS). The 2024 event is expected to diversify by adding new technologies and industry segments.

RotorTech is on in Brisbane until Thursday.
