BRISBANE will host the official launch of beef's biggest celebration next month.
With 12 months left until Beef Australia 2015 draws crowds and cattle to Rockhampton, organisers will gather in Brisbane on May 22 to officially open the event.
The Bombay Polo Club at the city's Pig N Whistle bar and grill has been chosen as the venue.
Another launch event has been scheduled for the host city - Australia's beef capital - on May 29.
Beef Australia CEO Dennis Cox said the countdown has begun to Australia’s national beef exposition.
"This is the industry’s chance once every three years to eat, play and learn about all things beef," he said.
