Strengthening the Home Front with Business Procurement Opportunities

With the upcoming Olympic Games coming down under to Brisbane in 2032 and the Queensland Procurement Policy (QPP) increasing their spend on local businesses, an extraordinary amount of job opportunities, contracts and partnerships are currently – and will to become – available for local businesses.


Delivering on the Queensland Small Business Procurement Commitment – Action Statement, as of the new Financial Year, QPP has increased its procurement quota for supporting the recovery of local small to medium enterprises from 25% to 30% of the state’s procurement. This initiative is targeted at increasing government spending on local businesses to build confidence, stimulate business growth and innovation, create new job opportunities and drive capability.


To be successful in obtaining a current QPP or an upcoming Brisbane Olympic Games opportunity will require extensive planning, strategy and foresight. This is why Forward Festival is offering informative Ted-Talk inspired presentations, Q&A sessions and panel discussions that will explore what this means for Australian businesses, how to position for success, and what you can start doing now in preparation.

Therefore, remaining strategic and informed will provide you with a competitive edge over peers.
