This industry breakfast will look at the SEQ People Mass Movement Study and the opportunities this presents for attracting and retaining talent through greater physical connectivity. The SEQ People Mass Movement Study aspires to create greaterlocal and regional connectivity helping to transform South East Queensland (SEQ) into a world class region over the next 25 years.

South East Queensland has played host to some major events, it is no stranger to the world stage. Brisbane hosted the commonwealth games in 1982, and in 1988 The World Expo reshaped and redefined Brisbane leaving a legacy of a city oriented to culture and leisure. In 2014 we welcomed world leaders to the G20 summit, the summit brought accommodation and capacity challenges, policing and security concerns and ensuring our airports were ‘jet ready’.

In 2018 Gold Coast put on a show with the Commonwealth Games selling 1.2 million tickets, combining parasports in the 2-week long program and leaving community legacies such as Carrara and Coomera sports stadiums. Importantly GC2018 also highlighted the necessity for improvements in infrastructure, and the planning and delivery of integrated transport systems for the long-term benefit of our state.

The Council of Mayors South East Queensland SEQ People Mass Movement Study states that

"The shared Vision for SEQ is to "grow sustainably, compete globally and offer high-quality living". By 2031 the combination of population and employment growth is anticipated to increase transport demand across the region by 30%. The population growth of over 1 million by 2031 will continue adding another 820,000 residents by 2041 with an associated transport demand increase of 18%. This continued growth is expected to impose significant pressure on the transport network across SEQ and threaten the liveability vision."

If you consider the legacies SEQ has gained from hosting previous world events imagine the catalyst a successful 2032 Olympic Bid could provide for bringing about a positive and sustained change to our infrastructure planning and delivery.
