Inbound delegation visits

Inbound delegations can range from visits by our sister cities, to business and cultural delegations and official government visits.

Increasingly, City of Gold Coast is gaining international attention as a reputable local government authority and the Gold Coast is being recognised as a serious place to do business.

Hosting international delegations

The Office of the Mayor can assist in coordinating arrangements for international delegations prior to arrival, planning the delegation’s meeting program, hosting delegations once they arrive on the Gold Coast and providing cultural and protocol information.

Should you wish to submit a request for Council of the City of Gold Coast (Council) to host an international delegation, please complete the Inbound delegation visit request form and email to

Upon receipt of the form, the Office of the Mayor will assess the request and an officer will be in contact for further action. Due to the large number of delegations hosted by Council, requests usually need to reach Council at least one month prior to the proposed date of the visit.
