PREMIER Annastacia Palaszczuk will join industry leaders and global sporting identities to discuss the 2032 Olympics legacy priorities at next week’s Future Brisbane lunch.

Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games chief Etienne Thobois will also deliver a keynote address live from the French capital to guests at the Royal International Convention Centre in Brisbane.

An expert panel featuring Ms Palaszczuk, University of Queensland Vice-Chancellor Deborah Terry, BOQ managing director George Frazis, Olympian Cate Campbell and The Star Entertainment Group’s chief operating officer Kelvin Dodt will share their thoughts on how Queensland can maximise the Games opportunity.

It follows The CourierMail’s Future Brisbane news series this month, which raised the prospect of South East Queensland becoming the Asia Pacific’s sport high performance hub and the need to deliver a heavy rail link to Maroochydore before 2032.

Sky News Queensland editor and News Corp columnist Peter Gleeson will MC the lunch and Hancock Prospecting executive chairman Gina Rinehart will deliver a special address.
