Growing Queensland Business Roadshow
Our exciting and revamped 2022 Growing Queensland Business Roadshow program gives you the opportunity to:
- connect with representatives from your local council and state government
- get practical tips and information about:
- government tendering
- 'greening' your business

Whether you're a government buyer or supplier, or you're looking to supply to government, this year's program allows you to choose your own journey and attendance approach.
You can choose to:
