Get ready for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018

Posted by Carly Crossley - 15/04/2015

Gold Coast accommodation operators will learn about opportunities surrounding the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games at information sessions hosted by GOLDOC this week.

Minister for the Commonwealth Games, Kate Jones, said the Games present an exciting opportunity for Gold Coast accommodation providers to welcome guests from around the world.

“The Gold Coast will also accommodate people travelling to the Games to work in catering, transport, security and ceremonies, along with sponsors and the media.

“Every style of accommodation is needed and it’s particularly important for representatives from smaller properties to attend the sessions.

“1.5 million tickets will be sold so there will be huge demand for accommodation,” Ms Jones said.

“The Commonwealth Games are expected to create 30,000 jobs and leave an economic footprint of $2 billion. When the very first guest checks into their accommodation, our image as a world class host will be on display.

“We don’t want visitors to come only for the Games, we want them to return to Queensland and the Gold Coast for years to come,” Ms Jones said.

The information sessions will be hosted by Games organisers GOLDOC, which has inspected more than 180 properties over recent months to source accommodation that provides the level of services, quality and price required to support the 2018 event.
