The second edition of the My Events The World is Coming Events guide, filled with key information on upcoming major events to be held on the Coast over the next few months, has been launched by Sunshine Coast Council in partnership with My Weekly Preview.

A total of 90,000 copies of the publication will be delivered to businesses and households across the region and will be available at events listed in the guide.

In conjunction with Visit Sunshine Coast, a further 100,000 copies will be distributed in the Courier Mail this weekend, with the aim of targeting the Brisbane/South-East Queensland drive tourist market.

Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said Sunshine Coast has already hosted a range of national and international sporting, lifestyle and cultural events last year – but we have so much more to come.

“It’s been an action-packed year already for major events on the Sunshine Coast, with the region hosting ‘the best ever Aussies’, the ‘most successful World Outrigging Championships’ and the biggest ever Queensland Garden Expo,” Cr OPray said.

“Yet in the next few months, we’ll be gearing up for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, Horizon Festival, Caloundra Music Festival, Australasian Police and Emergency Services Games and Wanderlust just to name a few.

“This second edition of My Events is your invitation to join in.

“The special 48-page events magazine features the exciting upcoming events and showcases our beautiful part of the world to our guests.

“It’s packed with information on attractions, activities, accommodation, dining and entertainment options.

“We encourage everyone to grab a copy of to find out more about the few months ahead for major events on the Sunshine Coast.”

Wayne Poole, Sale Manager of Travel, Tourism and Groups at Aussie World, who are a key advertiser in the publication, said major events in the region played an important part in drawing visitors to their attraction.

“Participants and spectators come for the world class events, but once they’re here they stay and play at our many tourist attractions including Aussie World,” Mr Poole said.  

“We value the opportunity to tempt these visitors to come back again and experience our attraction as tourists.”
