Brisbane Economic Development Agency (BEDA)’s business events team attended the Associations National Forum Conference (ANFC) 2022 in Melbourne this week, showcasing Brisbane as an events, conferences and exhibitions destination.

Brisbane has much to offer the association industry with access to global talent, robust university partnerships, a $15 billion infrastructure pipeline for connectivity and a slew of premium new hotels and world class venues on the horizon.

Brisbane’s strong track record hosting major association conferences includes recent wins such as the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects 2022 Festival of Landscape Architects and the Seafood Industry Australia’s Seafood Directions Conference 2022.

“Brisbane seized the opportunity during the pandemic to ensure the business events industry was in a position to exceed expectations when face to face events returned, uniting as a city across government and industry to deliver impactful events and to create lasting legacies,” said Lorelle Chittick, BEDA’s general manager for tourism, business & major events.

“Looking towards 2032, Brisbane will continue along the green and gold runway towards our turn in the global arena as an Olympic-level city and deliver an unparalleled offering for local, national and international associations.”

The Brisbane Business Events team will also take Brisbane to the world stage at IMEX Frankfurt.
