2,000 delegates from 90 countries attended the Congress at the ASM Global managed venue. The event has not been held in Australia for 20 years.
The team at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) worked with the Queensland Government, through Tourism & Events Queensland (TEQ) and were supported by Brisbane Economic Development Agency (BEDA), on securing this high-profile sector congress which is expected to deliver more than $7 million into the local Queensland economy.
BCEC General Manager, Kym Guesdon stated: “At BCEC we have a strong focus both on sustainability and the medical and health care sectors. The Centre’s collaborative partnerships with the local scientific community as part of our Convention Advocates Partnership, play an important role in attracting these key sector conferences to Brisbane.”
