“We are further delighted to see that the $345 million expansion and refurbishment at Jupiters has now commenced, reinforcing their enthusiasm to be a key part in the changing face of the Gold Coast,” Mr Chamier said.
Echo Entertainment Chairman, John O’Neill AO, said Jupiters is proud to partner with the event.
“The timing is perfect on so many levels,” said Mr O’Neill. “The legacy of the Games will be to again position the Gold Coast as an Australian destination of choice for tourists and investors, for decades to come.
“As a long-standing member of the Gold Coast community, Jupiters is proud to partner with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games to help take advantage of this once-in-a-generation opportunity to propel the Gold Coast forward.
“The Gold Coast is renowned for its bold, optimistic and enthusiastic character. It was built on a spirit of creativity, unbounded potential and inventiveness.
“Jupiters embodies that spirit, as does the Commonwealth Games, so the fit is really compelling.
Just like the Games, Jupiters and the Gold Coast are truly places where anything is possible.”
Commonwealth Games minister Kate Jones MP said Jupiters’ sponsorship signalled a strong vote of confidence in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games’ success.
“It’s great for the Games to have such a significant sponsor come on board so far out from the event. I congratulate GOLDOC on securing the Games first commercial sponsor and I’m sure Jupiters will play a key role in shaping its success.”
