Producers, Managers
and Convenors

Three exciting regional famil options are among the highlights for professional conference organisers and incentive operators who attend a major business events expo at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) on 18 July.

Convene Queensland (Convene Q) will showcase more than 100 venues, accommodation choices, attractions, activities, theme and audio visual companies, speakers and other suppliers in the state. It is ideal for association executives, professional conference organisers, executive administrators and others who organise meetings, functions, trade shows and others who organise business events in Queensland.

Convene Q general manager Allyssa Eastaugh says that while delegates are welcome to attend the show only, they can get extra value out of exploring further through the event’s highly regarded famil programme – open to hosted buyers from around Australia and New Zealand.

An exciting new addition to the programme is a chance for delegates to join Mackay locals celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the MacKay Festival of Arts. Participants will catch the ‘tail end’ of the 10 day programme covering a variety of visual arts, music, theatre, family events, food, wine and more.

Another option is the Gold Coast famil – promoted as a ‘touch of Gold’ in the lead up to Commonwealth Games action.
And yet another exciting choice is a dual city famil – combining Brisbane with the Sunshine Coast so that delegates can experience the best of what these two centres have to offer.

All famil programmes will conclude in Brisbane, where participants will attend Convene Q and take part in pre-scheduled appointments with exhibitors. Register here

Convene Q is also open to local Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast based PCOs who decide to attend the expo only. They can attend on a ‘free-flow’ basis or make appointments to suit their time of attendance and maximise their time accordingly. Register here
