Confidence returns to brisbane events


ConFIdenCe is returning to Brisbane’s events industry, according to the city’s Economic Developmen­t Agency.

The success of the recent annual Brisbane Pop-Up (pictured) indicated the return of confidence, with more than 170 event planners and buyers, and 55 exhibitors from the city’s hotels, venues and service providers converging on Fortitude Music Hall for this year’s event, which connected businesses and showcased the best of the city’s events industry.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said industry interest in this year’s Brisbane Pop-Up indicated the city’s multimilli­on-dollar event market was poised to thrive after more than a year of uncertaint­y.

“There’s a rising feeling of optimism in Brisbane, and we’re on our way to being well and truly open for business in the events space,” he said.

“Brisbane Pop-Up was the perfect opportunit­y to bring the industry back together and provide the local events industry with a much-needed boost.”
