There has never been a better time to do business on the Gold Coast

– Mayor Tom Tate


City of Gold Coast is proud to present Gold Coast Business Week, from 14 to 18 May 2018, providing an amazing opportunity to network and find out about emerging trends in the industry.

Business Week celebrates the legacy of Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and the way ahead for businesses in the digital age. The Gold Coast is a city brimming with confidence, opportunity and prosperity. Our economy is vibrant, investment is high and employment is strong.

This Business Week, the City has partnered with Myriad – Australia’s Leading Innovation Festival – to gather the world’s most influential entrepreneurs and tech experts to ‘Gold Coast Way Ahead’, a networking forum for local businesses.

There are over 15 different events to attend, and most are free. Register to attend and be part of the way ahead for the Gold Coast.  View the program here and get way ahead.


The City boasts a recently developed investment support program that has capacity to assist with financial assistance, itinerary development, streamlined development applications and fast-tracked approvals.

The program helps with business case preparation, workforce development, site selection and facilitating introductions with local industry contacts and government bodies and workforce development.

This forward-thinking – first of its kind in Australia – investment attraction program is an opportunity not to be missed.
