Supporting Queensland Business

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) provides a significant opportunity for businesses across Queensland.

With events happening across the state, GC2018 will inject billions of dollars into the economy. There will be 6,600 athletes and team officials, 15,000 volunteers and more than 100,000 visitors, plus a television audience greater than 1.5 billion worldwide.  

To support businesses to take advantage of the opportunities arising before, during and after GC2018, a number of programs to build capability and capacity are being developed, including the Be Games Ready program, tourism initiatives, support for Indigenous businesses, and major event capability development.

In addition, the Trade 2018 program is an extensive Trade and Investment Program developed to run in the lead-up to and during GC2018. Through a number of international and inbound trade activations, Trade 2018 will showcase investment opportunities for businesses.
