Steve Keating, Executive Director - Special Project Unit, Department of State Development will be speaking to the timber industry about Global Tourism Hubs (GTH) and Queen’s Wharf Brisbane on Tuesday 13 February 2018.

The Special Projects Unit (SPU) is a specialised work unit within the State Government that achieves economic development outcomes by facilitating and delivering complex joint venture Global Tourism Hub (GTH) projects.

GTHs are an integrated strategy for Queensland that delivers world-class tourism infrastructure, including integrated resorts.

GTHs are significant tourism infrastructure encompassing entertainment and leisure facilities (which may include a casino), luxury hotel accommodation, extensive food and beverage offering and commonly the delivery of public realm for the benefit of the community.

SPU will provide an update on Queen’s Wharf Brisbane as it completes its first year on the ground and moves into the next stage of this transformational project. The $3 billion catalytic project will provide around 2,000 jobs during peak construction, 8,000 jobs once operational in around 2022 and deliver an estimated 1.39 million additional tourists to Queensland.

In addition to Queen’s Wharf Brisbane, in October 2017 the government announced the commencement of an Registration of Interest (RoI) process to build a GTH in the Tropical North (Cairns).  This project will bring a dynamic new tourism opportunity to the Tropical North.

The presentation will go for 30 to 40 minutes, with additional time at the end for questions.

Please join us to learn more about the opportunities on offer from these once-in-a-generation projects.

Timber Queensland will also provide an update on the Accredited Queensland Timber Network and how your business can get involved and take advantage of this promotion channel.
