The Organising Committee invites you to participate as a sponsor or exhibitor at the 2021 Bowen Basin Symposium.

The Symposium has been a resounding success since its inception in 1985 and we acknowledge that these successes would not have been possible without generous financial support from both the mining houses and the service industries.

In order to build on the past successes, we would like your company to consider financially supporting the 8th Bowen Basin Symposium through one of the sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available for the 2021 event.

Your financial support will ensure that the Organising Committee can:

  • Maintain the high standard of the Symposium
  • Ensure the Symposium remains revenue neutral
  • Subsidise delegate registration fees
  • Subsidise student attendance

More information on sponsorship and exhibition package inclusions is detailed in the Sponsorship and Exhibition Prospectus, which you can download here, or alternatively request via email to

The packages have been designed to enhance sponsor and exhibitor visibility across all Symposium media (e.g. print, website, mobile app, various venue vantage points) so that we can assist you to enhance the value of your brand.

*Custom packages are available on request.

The 2021 BBS has been listed on the Schedule of Approved Business Events for the Australian Government’s $50 million Business Events Grants program. This means as a sponsor or exhibitor of the 2021 BBS, you can apply to claim up to 50% of the costs of participating in the Symposium! Find out more information by clicking here.

We look forward to welcoming you as a financial supporter of the 2021 Bowen Basin Symposium and joining our existing sponsors:
