Event cancelled: QUT Business Leaders’ Forum on 31 March 2020

You’ll be aware that on Friday 13 March, the Australian Government advised that gatherings of 500 or more people should not be staged. QUT's priority is the health and safety of staff, students and our community, and with this in mind we have decided to cancel the QUT Business Leaders’ Forum on 31 March 2020.

We'll be providing a full refund for all tickets purchased via the same way that you purchased your tickets, for example, if you paid by Visa, your refund will be made back onto that same card. The refunds will be processed over the next two weeks.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause. We'll continue to monitor and respond to advice from Australian Government authorities and global health organisations with respect to future QUT Business Leaders’ Forum events this year. Join our mailing list to stay up to date regarding future events.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
