Brisbane is turning heads

Positioning Brisbane front and centre for consumer and business travel

When BEDA asked Aruga to promote Brisbane to interstate and drive market travellers, we pulled out our little black book and began sharing the Brisbane ‘sizzle’ with influential travel, lifestyle and business writers.

Covering Brisbane from its humming inner-city, along the coast to Moreton Bay and Redlands, over the water to Bribie Island, Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and Moreton Island and inland to Somerset, Scenic Rim, Ipswich and Logan, there was no limit to the incredible stories we unearthed.

We took travel writers on a yoga workshop on Minjerribah, unveiled a stunt at Brisbane Airport to celebrate international borders reopening and hosted media on a jam-packed three-day business showcase of the latest and greatest in conferences, expos and corporate travel.

We used each opportunity to shine a light on Brisbane’s infrastructure and development plans, sparkling new precincts and venues and roadmap to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Watch this space – there’s still so much more to come!
