Living on the Sunshine Coast it seems there is an event on every weekend, and now we can confirm it!
We will host more than 55 major events in 2018, with 130,000 visitors.
The economic benefit for the coast is staggering - in 2017 events delivered $60 million to the local economy.
The localized spending doesn't stop at one recipient, 79 cents in every visitor dollar flows through to other sectors of the economy.
Successful events motivate participants and their guests to return for holidays, business or relocation during the rest of the year, or future years.
