Regional Economic Development Growth Forum

Sep 1, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

The North Burnett, as part of the Wide Bay Burnett region, will see its achievements on display during the fourth annual Wide Bay Burnett Regional Economic Development Growth Forum to be held in Maryborough this November.

The conference, jointly hosted by the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils (WBBROC), Queensland Department of State Development and Regional Development Australia Wide Bay Burnett, will be held at the Brolga Theatre on Thursday, 9 November.

North Burnett Regional Council Mayor, Cr Rachel Chambers is looking forward to the forum. “This will be the fourth forum I’ve attended and only the second as mayor. Each year I’ve learnt valuable information from business and industry peers and it has also been an event where previously unannounced emerging opportunities have been shared with the audience. This year innovation is expected to play a big part in discussions with the ability to think differently now required more than ever for business and industry success.”

“The event is a fantastic opportunity for local business owners to gain insight and network with other business and community leaders across the region, to promote their businesses not only within Queensland and Australia as a whole, but to the international market as well,” Mayor Chambers said.

“I encourage all North Burnett business owners to attend this free event, where, in addition to receiving updates on government funding opportunities and information on proposed investment and infrastructure planned for the region, projects of regional significance will be featured, along with a panel discussion from WBBROC Mayors, and expansion and innovation achievements from local businesses will be highlighted.”

The free forum, to be held on Thursday, 9 November from 9:30am to 3pm includes a free networking lunch. For further information or to book a ticket for this event see the Eventbrite website.
