Event description

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 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 second 2018 Inside Scoop event, Mandy Keegan, Manager of Press Operations for GC2018 gives us the inside scoop on how the world's media will be accommodated and supported during the Games.

With an expected cumulative global broadcast audience of 1.5 billion, the eyes of the world will be firmly on the Gold Coast next April. Join Mandy Keegan as she shares how her team is gearing up for the world’s media to descend on our city. Mandy has managed media operations for major sports events including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, three Cricket World Cups, two Rugby World Cups and an Asian Games.


Joining Mandy will be City of Gold Coast's Executive Coordinator - GC2018 City Media Operations, Mark Howell, to talk about how the City’s Gold Coast Media Centre will be promoting the city across all sectors using the Games as the catalyst. Mark has delivered city media operations for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the London 2012 Olympics on behalf of the city councils as well as working in event PR for a number of years on Olympics, Tour de France, Commonwealth Games and Volvo Ocean Races.

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.
