A recent investigation into the current supply of, and future demand for, commercial visitor accommodation on the Sunshine Coast estimates that 1800 new internationally-branded and operated hotel rooms are required to service the needs of the region’s growing overnight visitor economy.
The combination of a rapidly growing local population, strong economic growth and investment in region-shaping projects provides a solid platform for a prosperous and exciting future for the region.
The region’s role as an important host region to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games adds another reason why the Sunshine Coast needs more hotel rooms.
Rooms are needed to support the visitor economy across a range of market segments including leisure, business, major events, MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions), sport, health, education and VFR travellers.
The opportunity exists for potential hotel investors, developers and owners to share in a prosperous future by investing in new, internationally-branded upscale hotels.
Sunshine Coast Council is actively seeking to attract up to 1800 new-build internationally-branded and operated hotel rooms over the next decade.
