Business Events Australia

More information


There’s no better time to host your next business event in Australia.

With a new Bid Fund ready to help with event costs, Australia is more competitive than ever. Australia engages, challenges, provokes and transforms. It encourages people to discover new ideas, concepts and ways of looking at the world.

Complementing this, Australia has a distinguished track record of hosting exceptional incentive programs and large-scale international conventions. First-class convention centres lead the world in service and catering while convention bureaux facilitate access to some of Australia’s greatest minds, who will inspire and challenge your audience.

Add to this unique ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences, beautiful landscapes, spectacular venues, award winning food and wine and friendly people, and it’s easy to see why there’s nothing like Australia for business events.
