The calendar of activities of Queensland showcases events of all genres, starting right from professional to mass participation sport, to arts and culture, music festivals and business events, everywhere in the Australian state. Like Glasgow in 2014, the Gold Coast region of Queensland organized a highly successful Commonwealth Games in 2018.
As Gold Partner, TEQ will send a delegation to Host City 2019 headed by CEO Leanne Coddington, who is giving a keynote Destination Showcase address.
She said: “We are very excited to partner with Host City and look forward to reconnecting with old and establishing new relationships with a range of entities across the conference and exhibition.”
“Host City will provide us a great opportunity to share experiences, thoughts and learnings with industry leaders from around the world, while also showcasing what makes Queensland a great destination for successful major events, whether sporting, cultural or business events.”
To quote Ben Avison, Editorial and Conference Director at Host City, “We are delighted to welcome Tourism and Events Queensland as a Gold Partner of Host City 2019, and particularly pleased to welcome Leanne Coddington as a keynote speaker. Tourism and Event Queensland’s focus on all kinds of events – sports, business and cultural – is an ideal match for Host City’s network.”
TEQ is a member of the International Association of Event Hosts (IAEH), with which Host City enjoys a Strategic Partnership.
Host City is delivered in joint venture with EventScotland, its primary Supporting Partner.
