Growing Queensland Business Roadshow

During October and November 2022, Queensland Government Procurement hosted a series of state-wide free supplier and government buyer events which provided practical information, tools and tips to help local businesses supply to the Queensland Government and local council, along with opportunities to find out about a range of other related programs. In addition, local suppliers had the opportunity to meet directly with government procurement experts and local council representatives.

The roadshow format included 'drop-in' sessions where suppliers could hear from speakers covering the topics listed below as well as meeting and networking with government and council staff at the 'continuous engagement' stations.

Drop-in session topics

  • General Goods and Services and ICT categories – how supply arrangements work, finding opportunities and what to do when you are on an arrangement.
  • Recognising social value – the Buy Queensland approach and how government is recognising social value and enhancing the lives of Queenslanders.
  • Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games – tips and information.
  • Greening your business – the free EcoBiz program which can help businesses reduce running costs.
  • Local supplier story – local suppliers discuss their tendering journey and provide their top three tips on tendering to the Queensland Government.
  • Tendering tips – tips to help you improve your approach to tendering.
  • Working with your local council – where to find upcoming council opportunities and where to go to for assistance.
  • Regional manufacturing – what the Industry 4.0 transition means for business (sessions only run in regional manufacturing hub locations).
