Q2032 – Ready, set, go! 

Helping Queensland businesses get match-fit for Brisbane 2032

The Queensland Government today released a three-step ‘Ready, set, go!’ game plan to help Queensland businesses get ‘match fit’ to supply to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Q2032 Procurement Strategy (Q2032) aims to help businesses win contracts to supply to the Queensland Government, other suppliers and the world market before, during and after the Games.

Brisbane 2032 is Queensland’s greatest single economic event with an estimated $180 billion in procurement opportunities to 2032. The successful Buy Queensland approach will ensure the economic benefits of hosting the Games are maximised and shared among Queenslanders.

By getting your business match-fit, you can not only bid for Brisbane 2032 contracts but also for broader Queensland Government and local, interstate and overseas contracts.
