Description

City of Gold Coast Libraries presents 2018 Inside Scoop - seven exclusive events taking you behind the scenes of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, bringing you in the inside scoop from the people in the know.

It's a unique chance to get the lowdown on our city’s preparations to host its biggest ever international event – and Australia’s biggest since the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

In our first 2018 Inside Scoop event, Emily Biviano from the GC2018 Village Operations team takes you behind the scenes of the Commonwealth Games Village.

The numbers are staggering – 6,600 athletes and officials will be staying in 1,170 apartments and 82 townhouses. Every day, 3,300 bedrooms will be cleaned, 3,400 pillow cases and 7,000 towels changed and up to 27,000 meals will be served. The Village Operations team is responsible for the planning and operations of the GC2018 village site in Southport, as well as the regional villages in Cairns and Townsville.


2018 Inside Scoop
runs from October 2017 to March 2018 at City Libraries, ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. The series will bring you a wealth of behind the scenes insight into the operations of GC2018 straight from the key people organising the Games and academics looking at the impacts on our city. From the athletes’ preparations to what they can expect at the Games Village, to building the venues and managing the world’s media, find out how the Games will run, and its long-term benefits for our city.
