Alongside the G20 Summit, Brisbane hosted the inaugural Global Cafe – an international centre of thought leadership. Seventy-five of the world’s brightest minds gathered to discuss important issues around improving human life, future cities, powering the economy, unlocking the opportunities of the digital age and exploring the emerging frontiers of tourism.
The forum, held on November 12 and 13 2014, comprised five key themes pivotal to our future – Improving Human Life; Powering Future Economies; The Digital Age – Entrepreneurship & Innovation; Tourism’s New Frontiers and Cities of the Future.
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.
