BRIS­BANE Con­ven­tion Bureau to­gether with The Univer­sity of Queens­land have se­cured a tri­fecta of con­fer­ences worth over $2.1 mil­lion for the lo­cal econ­omy.

Bris­bane will host the 9th In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on In­ter­cul­tural Prag­mat­ics and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion in Jun 2020, the 6th Bi­en­nial Col­lo­quium of the Lan­guages and Cul­tures Net­work for Aus­tralian Uni­ver­si­ties in Nov 2021, and the 6th In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Con­ver­sa­tion Anal­y­sis in Jul 2022.

The con­fer­ences are ex­pected to at­tract over 800 na­tional and in­ter­na­tional del­e­gates.

“The sig­nif­i­cance of the three bid wins with The Univer­sity of Queens­land is that one of the univer­sity’s schools has worked with the Bureau to suc­cess­fully bid for three con­fer­ences,” Bris­bane Con­ven­tion Bureau gen­eral man­ager Juliet Alabaster (pic­tured) told BEN.

“This re­flects their be­lief in the power of busi­ness events as a driver for achiev­ing their goal of show­cas­ing lo­cal tal­ent and in­dus­try ex­per­tise to a global au­di­ence,” Alabaster said.

She also said that the 2017/18 fi­nan­cial year has been the big­gest for the Con­ven­tion Bureau, with the team see­ing a “record of over $96 mil­lion in busi­ness won”.
