Forum cancelled due to low numbers
THE first day of the Bundaberg Economic Development Forum to be held yesterday was canned because not enough people registered interest in the event.
Economic Development Australia’s Queensland branch was the main organiser of the first day’s activities and deputy chairman Cameron Bisley said, once the RSVP had closed, there were not enough people coming to the day’s activities to “break even”.
“The program was an excellent program,” he said.
“People said it was difficult and costly to get to Bundaberg in comparison to getting to Brisbane, but a lot of people were simply so busy they couldn’t make it at this time of year.”
But today’s second half of the forum, organised by Bundaberg Regional Council, will go ahead as planned.
Council’s economic development manager Naomi Searle said the second day’s events included a breakfast, with key speakers, and about 100 people expected.
