In 2016 Queensland Touring Showcase was hosted at the sunny Gold Coast alongside Bleach* Festival and the NARPACA Managers conference. Showcase was followed by three Roadcase events in Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Hughenden.

In response to feedback from previous events Showcase was structured to meet the specific programming needs of Managed Venues and Roadcase was designed for community presenters, regional councils, arts councils and regional festivals.
