G20 Leaders Summit

In November 2014, Brisbane will host the Group of Twenty (G20) Leaders Summit, the principal forum for international economic cooperation and decision-making. Over the days of the event, Brisbane will become capital city of the world, with leaders from the world’s most influential economies gathering in our city.

The G20’s permanent membership comprises of 19 of the world’s most powerful countries plus the European Union. Guest countries including Singapore and New Zealand, and international organisations are also invited to attend. As an annual event, the G20 gives world leaders the chance to share ideas and outline visions regarding key international issues.

Economic Benefits

The economic benefits to Brisbane are expected to run in excess of $100 million, with an upsurge in trade for local shops, hotels, and restaurants.
All eyes will turn to Brisbane with the G20 attracting significant national and international media coverage. This worldwide attention will bring on-going tourism benefits, as well as business interest which will generate long term investment and encourage more international business relationships.

In the lead up to the 2014 summit, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has asked Brisbane Marketing to work on a series of initiatives to ensure the city fully capitalises on the opportunities that come from the global spotlight falling on this event.
