Science, medicine and aviation sectors dominate the conferences to be held in Brisbane
International specialists in immunology, world trauma, wound management, drug resistant infections and vertebrate palaeontology are among those who will head to Brisbane as a result of the 140 strong line-up of conference wins by BCEC and its convention partners over the last 12 months.
The scientific, medical and healthcare sectors along with education, engineering and aviation dominate the list of conventions.
Leading the list of recent international bid wins for Brisbane was Routes Asia 2018, Asia’s leading aviation route development forum.
Bringing together a range of airlines, including some of the largest carriers from the Asian region as well as airports and tourism authorities, Routes Asia 2018 is expected to impact both by showcasing Queensland’s aviation and tourism industries, and on the future growth and development of Brisbane as a destination.
Securing this influential three day event for Brisbane was a united team effort with a consortium of tourism advocates and business events leaders including BCEC, Brisbane Airport Corporation, Brisbane Marketing, Tourism and Events Queensland, Queensland Trade and Investment Queensland.
“The economic, knowledge sharing, investment and tourism benefits of hosting such events represent enormous value to Brisbane and to Queensland well into the future,” said BCEC general manager Bob O’Keeffe.
