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 fourth 2018 Inside Scoop event, Professor Paul Burton - Director, Cities Research Institute, Griffith University and Professor Susanne Becken - Director, Griffith Institute of Tourism, will share their insight into why the Gold Coast is an ideal location for this international event and how it will benefit the city into the future.

With teams from 70 nations and territories taking part in GC2018, and more than 100, 000 visitors expected to our city, Griffth University's Professor Paul Burton will explore what makes the Gold Coast a city of the future, and therefore a city fit to host Australia's biggest sporting event this decade. His Griffith colleague Professor Susanne Becken will discuss how being a host city will shape the Gold Coast as a tourist destination into the future.

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.
