IT'S going to be the biggest party since Expo 88, according to Queensland Premier Campbell Newman.

The State Government is planning a huge party in the three weeks leading up to the G20 Summit in November.

"We're putting on the biggest party since Expo to showcase our amazing state not only to the world's media, CEOs and leaders, but to the very people who call this great state home as well," Mr Newman said.

"The Commonwealth Games in 1982 and World Expo 88 have both shaped Brisbane and the G20 this year will be another defining moment of our history.

"It's an investment that will boost our state's economy through full hotels, bars and restaurants and most importantly the positive word of mouth spread right around the globe.

"This is our chance to say we live in a place where we know how to have fun, we're embracing cutting edge technology and we're genuinely a new world city."
