Australia’s new world city, Brisbane is a cultural and economic powerhouse with a young, skilled workforce and culturally-diverse population of more than two million.
Its thriving cultural scene, natural attractions and globally-connected businesses and industries have put it well on track to becoming one of world’s most prosperous new world cities.
Brisbane offers an open, enterprising and progressive business environment with a strong culture of confidence and innovation, providing the perfect location for your most successful conference ever.
According to the World Winning Cities 2012 Report produced by international property specialist Jones Lang Lasalle, Brisbane will rank first out of the top 20 fastest growing economies of the world by 2020.
Brisbane’s prosperity has seen the city develop a world-class cultural precinct that’s home to Australia’s most visited gallery GOMA - The Gallery of Modern Art. The nearby South Bank parklands is home to vast subtropical gardens, an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants and other cultural attractions which are making an increasing mark on the international stage.
The city’s growing profile will reach an even wider international audience in November 2014 when Brisbane hosts the G20 Leaders Summit. The event will bring thousands of delegates and international media to the city’s multi-award winning Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, a facility that sets the standard for conference venues in the Asia Pacific region.
Brisbane’s 50 CBD hotels, ranging from budget to boutique, cater for hundreds of thousands of business visitors and tourists each year, with thousands more international students enriching the city’s cultural life at its three major universities.
With an award-winning international airport located within 20 minutes of the CBD and world class transport links, Brisbane is the ideal location for conference organisers looking to maximise opportunities with East Asia’s tiger economies.
