The opportunity to establish a Gold Coast Cruise Ship Terminal has long been identified as having potential to grow Queensland and regional tourism.
Over the past five years the Gold Coast City Council has been investigating the economic benefits for investment into cruise ship infrastructure, with the feasibility study completed in June 2017.
Ahead of Cruise Ship Infrastructure 2018, Luke Adair, Coordinator Major Project at City of Gold Coast shares the strategies his team is using to analyse the feasibility of the development of port infrastructure and the steps they are taking to ensure effective stakeholder communication throughout the process.
In the article Luke provides advice on:
- Ensure effective stakeholder communication with the cruise liner industry and other stakeholders
- Steps taken to encourage cruise liners and passengers to choose your port as a destination for travel
- Strategies used to analyse feasibility of the development of cruise ship infrastructure
