Online advertising

Advertising on the City of Gold Coast website was introduced in April 2015 as a feasibility study to explore potential new sources of revenue for City initiatives.

After an initial pilot phase of 12 months using the advertising spaces for the promotion of City services, events and initiatives, it was decided to continue with this approach. City-funded entities are also able to promote their services and events using these ad spaces.
