Regions Rising - Queensland

Regions Rising - Queensland


The Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is proud to present our Queensland Regions Rising event in Toowoomba on Thursday, 3 November.

Regions Rising is RAI’s flagship national event series where we take our research around the country to each State and share the RAI’s insights and data on the matters most critical to regional Australians.

RAI CEO, Liz Ritchie and the Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing and Minister for Water, the Hon. Glenn Butcher will both deliver keynote addresses and will be joined by panellists to discuss issues focussed on housing, education, productivity and innovation, as well as jobs and skills in Queensland. 

The furure of regional Australia is bright, with more people than ever before looking to make the move. While this brings many opportunities to regional communities, it also presents some challenges.

We invite you to take a seat at the table in Toowoomba as we work towards our Regionalisation Ambition 2032 in Australia, with attendees and our Regional Activator Alliance (RAA) members – Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE), Heritage Bank and Western Downs Regional Council.

The Tooowoomba event is hybrid, with in-person and online tickets.
