Embracing 2018 overview

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) is more than a spectacular sporting event. It also provides opportunities and benefits to the Gold Coast and all of Queensland before, during and after the event. These benefits will span tourism and economic growth, trade and business, arts and culture, and sports and healthy lifestyle.

There will be opportunities before, during and after the Games for Queenslanders to be involved through a broad range of legacy initiatives. While some competed at the highest level, others gave their time and effort to make the event happen. Some people will be motivated to take up a sport themselves, others will get involved in organising sports for their community.

We can all contribute directly or indirectly to building positive and lasting benefits from hosting GC2018.

Embrace the opportunity.
