Football Queensland has today announced it will host an inaugural Queensland Football Convention in 2024, bringing together clubs, coaches, referees and participants from the length and breadth of Queensland across three engaging and immersive days.
“Recognising that to move the game forward, we need to continue innovating and elevate the football debate, we’re excited to unite members of our football community for the first edition of the annual Queensland Football Convention,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“The Queensland Football Convention will kick off on the evening of Friday 1st November with a cocktail networking event, designed to connect football stakeholders to business and government.
“The first conference session on Saturday 2nd November will begin to unpack the strategic direction of the game with guest speakers and expert industry panels before breaking out into Part 1 of the Referee, Coaching and Club conferences, with FQ committee sessions and FQ Board and FQ member sessions closing out the day.
“Headlining the Queensland Football Convention on Saturday evening will be the 2024 Football in Queensland Awards Night at Brisbane City Hall, an event which is always a highlight of our football calendar. With well over 500 in attendance we will celebrate the achievements of the state’s most outstanding individuals, teams and clubs.
“Featuring tailored content for clubs, referees and coaches in addition to strategic and operational planning sessions, the convention will conclude on Sunday 3rd November with Part 2 of the Referee, Coaching and Club conferences.
“While major FQ events and conferences have previously been held at various times throughout the year, the innovative Queensland Football Convention will bring all facets of our game together for one unmissable weekend while connecting our football community with each other, alongside key business and government contacts to support the ongoing growth of football in Queensland.”
Further information on ticket packages will be released shortly.
