Dreamtime 2017

Brisbane successfully hosted the Tourism Australia's signature incentive product showcase, Dreamtime, in December 2017.

A total of 94 international incentive planners, 19 media including 4 domestic and 88 sellers descended on Brisbane for the two-day program. The program featured networking events and product showcases to help attendees discover Brisbane’s creative incentive products and destination experiences. A stunning riverside welcome event at Riverbar & Kitchen marked the end of the first day and offered delegates an uninterrupted view of the city’s iconic Story Bridge lit up in the official Dreamtime colours of silver and blue. The evening culminated in a spectacular fireworks display over the Brisbane River. 

To coincide with Dreamtime, the Brisbane Convention Bureau also launched a new Brisbane Signature Experiences itinerary featuring 14 new incentive experiences, many of which attendees got to trial first-hand.
