Major Events Roll into Brisbane – Set to Inject Millions into Economy

Hundreds of thousands of visitors are set to visit our great city and surrounds in the space of a few months with six major events scheduled, reports


The events are predicted to provide a huge boost to the Brisbane economy. The events include; The World Science Festival, “Nasa – A Human Adventure” exhibition at the Queensland Museum, Curiocity Brisbane, the Brisbane Cycling Festival, QODE technology festival and CMC Rocks.


Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said events such as the above are putting Brisbane on the map as world destination for major events. 


“Brisbane is the only place outside of New York where you can experience the World Science Festival, and this month we will open an Australian-exclusive at the Queensland Museum – NASA – A Human Adventure,” Ms Palaszczuk said.


“Curiocity,” is a brand-new event which also incorporates the World Science Festival Brisbane and new innovation conference QODE. 


Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said echoes Ms Palaszczuk’s sentiment that Brisbane is positioning itself as a key city for large events.


“Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to Brisbane for this event, contributing to a $150 million annual boost to the local economy as well as the local tourism, hospitality, retail and service industries.”


The Brisbane Cycling Festival is another first for the city, which will offer amateur and professional events over a three week period and will draw both national and international participants. The event, set to draw 20,000, will call Brisbane home for at least three years, and will boost the economy by a predicted $8 million per year.
