Queensland Alumni Event – London – Friday 14 September 2012

The Trade and Investment Qld Europe Office is hosting an all Queensland Alumni Cocktail reception in London on Friday 14 September 2012.

This is a complimentary event for alumni but RSVP is essential to secure your spot due to limited spaces available and allocations to the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, University of Southern Queensland, James Cook University, Central Queensland University, and Bond University.

Key Note Speaker: John Barrow, Senior Principal – Populous

John is responsible for the planning and design of major sports, entertainment and leisure facilities, as well as preparing bids for international events including London’s winning 2012 Olympic bid, Glasgow’s successful 2014 Commonwealth Games bid, Sochi’s successful 2014 Winter Olympics bid and Dubai’s World Expo bid for 2020.

Beach Volleyball at Horseguards? Archery at Lords? John’s ‘Team Populous’ were responsible for these and other unique temporary Olympic venues enjoyed by thousands of Londoners and visitors from around the world!

Join us to hear how these amazing ideas come alive and what is next for this renowned Queensland-born, London-based Architect and Master Planner.
