BRISBANE CONF FUND
BRISBANE has launched a new initiative to unearth its up-andcoming industry and research leaders while presenting the Queensland capital as an attractive destination for business events.
Launched by Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, the Lord Mayor’s Convention Trailblazer Grant program will award a share of $25,000 per year to the city’s most passionate and capable professionals or researchers and enlist their help to attract valuable industry conferences to Brisbane.
Quirk said the scheme would empower talented people in Brisbane to help attract international conferences and grow the local economy.
“Bringing major conferences to Brisbane puts a spotlight on our industries and areas of expertise while attracting the world’s brightest minds,” he said.
Brisbane Convention Bureau acting general manager Juliet Alabaster said the program would deliver up to five grants a year, up to a maximum value of $5,000 each.
Applications for the grants must be submitted by 28 Jan.
