Hosted by Brisbane Convention Bureau, the group attended the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens gala dinner at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and attended the all-New Zealand grand final at Suncorp Stadium.

Brisbane Convention Bureau general manager Rob Nelson said the famil showcased how aligning a meeting, conference or incentive program with a major event could offer delegates an unforgettable experience.

“Our New Zealand guests saw Brisbane transform into rugby heaven as the world’s best rugby players competed in the first ever Brisbane Global Rugby Tens tournament,” he said.

“This experience demonstrated how an international sporting tournament or other major event can be leveraged to add value to an incentive program, drive meeting attendance or engage with key delegates and sponsors.

“Among the colour and excitement of the rugby, our New Zealand guests also experienced the best of our city’s thriving dining scene, cultural offerings and outdoor activities under typical Brisbane blue skies.”
