Mega Events

Tourism and Events Queensland is proud to collaborate with a number of other state, national and international partners in hosting a range of special projects and events that establish Queensland as a world-class destination.

We take a highly strategic approach to ensuring that Queensland continues to be acknowledged by world leaders in politics, industry, sport and the arts, and continues to be renowned as a host for global events. This recognition helps achieve our aims of industry growth and innovation, fostering collaboration and information exchange, increasing visitation, and improving Queensland’s profile.

Queensland has previously proven its ability to successfully host mega international events such as the 1982 Commonwealth Games, Expo 88 and the 2014 G20 Summit, and now Queensland will again be in the global spotlight with the Commonwealth Games to be hosted on the Gold Coast in 2018.
