Australian tourism hopes more tourism business during Commonwealth Games

Published on : Monday, January 8, 2018

Australian tourism hopes more tourism business during Commonwealth GamesAustralian tourism officials keep an eye on the upliftment of the travel and tourism business and for this they are capitalizing on the Commonwealth Games.

 

 

The officials are expecting the Commonwealth Games April 4-15, 2018 to draw more than 100,000 visitors to the Gold Coast tourist strip, injecting more than $1.54 billion into the local economy.

 

 

 

It is calculated as Gold Coast portrays as a holiday destination, with the latest government statistics showing the “glitter strip” setting a record for overnight domestic visits, which have risen 14.3 per cent from last year at this time.

 

 

 

The tourism remains a major cornerstone of the region’s economy, generating more than 17 per cent of the Gold Coast’s gross regional product.

 

 

But it took a big hit in October 2016, when an accident at a popular Dreamworld theme park killed four visitors. At the time, Gold Coast Tourism CEO Martin Winter predicted the dip would be temporary and the latest stats indicate he was correct.

 

 

 

Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan sees the Commonwealth Games as the biggest international sporting event staged in Australia for a decade and the largest ever hosted by the Gold Coast.
