Brisbane Marketing has trumpeted that in 2016 Brisbane attracted an all-time record of 1.2 million international tourists, and their expenditure topped more than $2 Billion. This is an increase of 25% since 2012.

Of the top 25 Things To Do in Brisbane listed on Trip Advisor, 80% are civic places near the CBD that feature an urban park, and two thirds have a strong proximity to the Brisbane River near the CBD ( …. and none of these mention South Bank specifically!)

Do we need any other proof of the importance of our public realm to the current and future life and prosperity of our City?

Should business be placing a much higher priority on the number and quality of our outdoor spaces? What are the challenges and opportunities to do this? How do urban developers and builders see the return on investment of urban spaces and parks?

Join Emeritus Professor Dr Catherin Bull AM, State Government Architect Malcolm Middleton OAM, and a selected panel of specialists in this area for a robust and insightful investigation into these essential components of the way we – and our guests – experience Brisbane.

The BDA would like to acknowledge our Event Sponsor Cox Architecture and Venue Partner Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
