Business Events is a collective term referring to corporate and government meetings, incentive travel reward programs, association conventions, and exhibitions.
TEQ works in collaboration with Queensland's Convention Bureaux to secure international business events, which provide economic benefits to Queensland's destinations and support the State Government’s Advancing Tourism 2016-20 plan to grow tourism and jobs.
Business events represent one of the highest yielding sectors in Australia’s visitor economy. According to the Business Events Council of Australia Report released in 2015, the business events sector was worth a record A$28 billion to Australia’s economy.
