Pre-conference Tours



Queensland Pre-Conference Program (27/28 & 30 October 2018)

The Queensland Government, as the Host State Partner of the AusBiotech National Conference 2018, warmly welcomes you to participate in a Queensland pre-conference program to discover the state’s capability in life sciences:

  • Townsville (27 & 28 October) – understanding our regional capability, supported by Life Sciences Queensland;
  • Brisbane or Gold Coast (30 October) – the day before the start of the conference, tailored to allow delegates to fly into Brisbane early morning, check into their hotel and then begin the tour from the CBD.

These programs provide a unique opportunity for business and research leaders to get first-hand knowledge about Queensland research capabilities and strengths in human health including vaccine development, oncology and clinical trials. It is also an opportunity to discuss ideas, build networks, develop relationships and explore collaborative research and commercialisation opportunities.

Some of Queensland’s most successful and innovative institutes and precincts will form part of the Queensland program, including:



 Gold Coast

Further details of the program will be emailed to those who have registered their interest.

As places for this program are strictly limited, please register your interest early by emailing your preference as follows:

Brisbane (12:30pm to 6pm, 30 October)
Gold Coast (11:30am to 5:30pm, 30 October)

Note: While there are no costs involved to participate in the Queensland program, travel to Brisbane, travel to and from Townsville and the relevant accommodation costs are the delegate’s responsibility. The Queensland Government will provide bus pick up and drop off at one central location in Brisbane City and Brisbane Southbank on 30 October for the Brisbane and Gold Coast programs.
