City of Gold Coast together with Gold Coast Tourism Corporation have worked together to develop a Destination Tourism Management Plan (DTMP) for the Gold Coast. 

Residents, visitors and stakeholders were invited to have their say between 18 October and 1 November 2013 on how the Gold Coast can continue to evolve as a world class tourism destination.

Feedback and responses were used to develop the Destination Tourism Management Plan that was completed in May 2014.

The DTMP aims to set the future direction for tourism on the Gold Coast to 2023, define its key themes and work out the necessary strategies in an effort to improve and grow the city’s tourism economy.

It identifies short and long term actions to ensure tourism remains compelling, competitive and sustainable. The plan also includes priority projects centring on the beach, our events, entertainment and the hinterland. It also leverages opportunities arising from the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™.
