Marketing

Brisbane Economic Development Agency (BEDA) is the custodian of the Brisbane brand and leads destination marketing activity for the greater Brisbane region. BEDA is responsible for building Brisbane’s destination profile through campaigns, activations and strategic partnerships.


Current Marketing Activity 

BEDA delivers marketing activity throughout the year. 

Marketing at BEDA is divided into three distinct areas:

Tourism, Business and Major Events (TBME) 

Across Tourism, Business and Major Events (TBME), marketing activity inspires out-of-town visitors and stakeholders to visit Brisbane and explore its unique surrounding regions and attractions. The team focus their efforts in tourism, business events and major events. 

Brisbane boasts diverse experiences – from snorkelling the sunken wrecks of Moreton Island, to hiking around the scenic rim, through to fine dining and boutique accommodation in the heart of the city. 

Australia’s sub-tropical paradise has it all. The marketing team believes that Brisbane, and its diverse experiences, should be at the top of every out-of-town traveller and business event organiser’s bucket list, and aims to achieve this through creative marketing approaches. 

Business Growth, Trade and Talent (BGTT) 

The Brisbane Economic Development Agency’s Business Growth, Trade & Talent and Brisbane Business Hub Marketing team plays a crucial role in securing investment that will maximise Brisbane’s long-term economic growth and create opportunities for local businesses.
