Brisbane Marketing provides meeting planners and event organisers with a free one-stop-shop of support services. Here’s a few ideas on the ways we can help in the planning stage of your event.
Upon request, Brisbane Marketing can negotiate reduced fares on Brisbane’s Airtrain. Delegates travelling to Brisbane for a conference can quickly and easily transfer from the Brisbane Airport to five inner-city stations on the Airtrain for a reduced return ticket rate.
Contact the Convention Bureau Team to discuss this option for your conference.
Complimentary tour planning and booking assistance
The Brisbane Visitor Information and Booking Centre offers specialist services in the design and management of pre and post touring and partner program itineraries. The Centre can work with you to tailor a mix of tours for your delegates and/or partners. The Centre can then create a flyer (featuring hyperlinks that give delegates the opportunity to make immediate online tour bookings) for placement on your conference website.

With a year-long program of familiarisations, we’re committed to connecting meeting planners and event organisers with local operators through the first-hand Brisbane experience. Typically conducted over two days, our familiarisations allow confirmed clients and qualified meeting planners to see and experience Brisbane and its business events industry on-the-ground and in real-time.

Pre and post touring and partner program options
To help get delegates well on their way to experiencing all that Brisbane and its surrounds has to offer, we’ve compiled a few five-day sample itineraries.
