BRIS­BANE’S econ­omy will re­ceive a $96 mil­lion boost fol­low­ing a record year of events from Bris­bane Con­ven­tion Bureau.

Lord Mayor Gra­ham Quirk said Bris­bane had se­cured 78 con­fer­ences, in­clud­ing 34 in­ter­na­tional events in the last fi­nan­cial year, cre­at­ing “valu­able, pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, net­work­ing and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties within lo­cal growth sec­tors” which de­liv­ered flow-on eco­nomic benefits for tourism and hospi­tal­ity busi­nesses.

The ma­jor­ity of wins were sup­ported by a growth in the city’s “world-class in­fras­truc­ture & di­verse leisure ac­tiv­i­ties” said Juliet Al­abaster, gm at Bris­bane Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.
