The former Regional Architecture Awards events have been revamped to form the Queensland Architecture Awards Regional Roadshow.

These events will continue to acknowledge the local entries that year as well as celebrate their successes at both the Regional & State level. This will also be the platform for the Regional Project of the Year & Regional People's Choice to be announced.

In addition, there will be a Design Talk from two Awards winning projects (from the same year). Intended to run in a similar format to the Out There Speaker series in Brisbane and will include either two (2) State Named Awards recipients or the local Building and House of the Year (of a combination of both).
