Alongside the G20 Summit, Brisbane hosted the inaugural Global Cafe – an international centre of thought leadership.

The Brisbane Global Cafe was a huge success, attracting a live audience in City Hall of more than 2000 across two days, with thousands more watching it live-streamed online.
The Global Cafe social media hashtag was the number one hashtag in Australia during the event. This represented a reach of more than one million people.
