THE Bris­bane Vis­i­tors and Con­ven­tion Bureau cel­e­brated its 40th an­niver­sary re­cently with a net­work­ing event at Howard Smith Wharves for around 200 guests and mem­bers.

Bris­bane Mayor Gra­ham Quirk said the for­ma­tion of the bureau marked the begin­ning of sig­nif­i­cant growth in the city’s busi­ness events and tourism sec­tors.

“It was recog­nised that Bris­bane needed a ded­i­cated author­ity to at­tract con­ven­tions and vis­i­tors, and to­day these sec­tors are sig­nif­i­cant driv­ers of Bris­bane’s econ­omy,” he said.
