BRISBANE DELIVERS TRIFECTA
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”.
