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.
On our journey towards 2018, there will be opportunities for Queenslanders to be involved in the Commonwealth Games through a broad range of legacy initiatives. While some will compete in GC2018 at the highest level, others will give 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.
