Queensland Defence Futures Forum – 17 September

September 17 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Friday 17 September, the Queensland Futures Institute will be holding the Queensland Defence Futures Forum aimed at expanding awareness of Queensland Defence Industry opportunities to a targeted audience of Queensland companies.

Supported by the Queensland Government, the Forum aims to raise awareness of the current and emerging opportunities for Queensland. With a sharper focus on our sovereign capability and the importance of working closely with our Pacific neighbours and key strategic partners, the growth opportunities for Queensland across this sector are fast emerging.

The Forum aims to support the long-term expansion and economic contribution of the Defence Industry to a prosperous Queensland.
