The Gold Coast is Australia's sixth largest city and a leading tourist destination.

Passionate crowds, spectacular venues and an enviable mild climate make the Gold Coast an outstanding location to host your event. Our events capture the essence of our city – they’re vibrant, diverse and energetic.

Combine that with cohesive support services and infrastructure, and it’s no wonder we are the events capital of Australia, boasting more than 600 events annually.

City of Gold Coast’s events team is a one-stop shop for event organisers, providing logistics, approvals and planning support, and in some cases, financial assistance.

We provide support for every kind of event: large and small; sports, cultural and lifestyle; international and local. We can assist you in delivering a high quality event that meets the customers' expectations.

We manage the city's events portfolio, attracting and retaining events to optimise the economic benefits to the city.
