Help shape the city’s growth as a major events destination


Have you attended a major event on the Gold Coast recently?

Do you work in the events sector, or are a local resident and have a view on the types of major events you would like to see more of on the Gold Coast?

Work is underway to develop a five-year strategy for the management and delivery of major events on the Gold Coast.

Commissioned by Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC) in partnership with Griffith University the strategy marks an exciting new chapter for our city and will provide direction for how the Gold Coast continues to build on its established reputation for hosting major events.

We are interested in hearing the views of Gold Coast residents, major event attendees and other key stakeholder groups involved with the major events sector on the economic, social and reputational value of major events to the Gold Coast.

You are invited to complete an anonymous 10-minute online survey to share your views. Your input will shape the city’s aspirations and its growth as a major events destination.

To complete the survey, click on the button below. Closes Monday 28 March.


This survey is being administered by Griffith University and has ethics approval (approval no. 2021/891).
