Brisbane looking for new leaders to win global conventions
Opening the second round of the Lord Mayor’s Convention Trailblazer Grant, Quirk said recipients would be funded to attend an international association conference in their field to help pave the way for Brisbane to host the conference in the future.
“The Lord Mayor’s Convention Trailblazer Grant was a recommendation of the Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan, which outlined our commitment to winning more conferences and business events,” he said.
“The benefits of this grant are two-fold. Recipients will be funded to attend a conference that will benefit them professionally while also advocating for Brisbane to host a future rotation of the conference.”
The Lord Mayor’s Convention Trailblazer Grant is run by the Brisbane Convention Bureau.
“We’re looking for applicants who demonstrate passion and leadership in their field, and who can shine a spotlight on Brisbane’s expertise and make valuable connections to help our city secure conferences for the future,” said Convention Bureau general manager Juliet Alabaster.
Applications have opened and close on January 30, 2019.
