Building Regional Australia Summit is back in 2015!

23rd October 2014

The new Building Regional Australia Summit through infrastructure partnerships

When high profile corporate executives, regional development government leaders and large businesses get together to talk about building the profile of regional Australia, decisions are made and wheels begin to turn. What do they all have in common? A drive for building regional Australia through infrastructure partnerships, which is the theme of the second biennial Building Regional Australia Summit to be held in Queanbeyan 10-12 February 2015.

Building Regional Australia Summit is a chance to get the decision makers of regional development together to learn, discuss, debate and create a platform for opportunities to potentially amass for regional infrastructure. BRA 2015 will point a spotlight on the sponsors and delegates of the summit as leaders of regional development and to be acknowledged among an outstanding selection of local government leaders and key decision makers.

For the second time the Foundation for Regional Development has begun putting together this great initiative to be held in the regional centre Queanbeyan, adjacent to the country’s capital city. While plans are still being finalised, CEO of the Foundation Peter Bailey is happy to announce the three-day summit looks to be promising. “We have the support of the Deputy Premier and will be holding a breakfast at Parliament House. This will hopefully highlight the federal governments willingness to support regional development.”

Invitations to keynote speakers are being sent out, with positive feedback from many leading founders of regional development and infrastructure partners such as Jane Cay, founder of Birdsnest.com.au, Jim Betts, CEO of Infrastructure NSW and Cr Darryn Lyon, Mayor of Geelong. Every keynote speaker is a specialist in their area in building infrastructure partnerships and promoting regional development. They are speaking to share their knowledge of success and engage in discussions with the delegates for the benefit of regional Australia.

We are accepting admissions of interest for sponsors who want to be recognised as a key facilitator of regional development through directly engaging with leaders and decision makers and wish to participate in workshops and summit proceedings. The Foundation will be happy to work to any budget and is always looking to gain support from companies and individuals who are passionate about building the profile of regional Australia with direct help from a trusted not-for-profit organisation.

If you would like to enquire about sponsorship or wish to receive information about how to attend the summit as a delegate, please contact Brooke Maisey on brooke.maisey@frdl.org.au or phone 02 6771 5633. All enquiries are welcome.
