Business Events News - - News -

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.
