The casino operator has confirmed it will bid for a casino on Australia’s Gold Coast, next to nearly a dozen more companies.
Australia.- A potential casino development on Autralia’s Gold Coast has raised major interest from companies all around the globe. Hard Rock International has confirmed to be one of them, as it plans to bid for the casino licence and win the venue from the other dozen operators interested.
Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones explained that the government, which confirmed it would ask for submissions from the global market and receive them until April, would approve a global tourism development to bring entertainment venues, convention space, high-end retail and dining and luxury hotels to the area.
“We expect a Gold Coast Global Tourism Hub to create more than 6,000 local jobs and attract an extra million tourists each year,” she said and added: “This could be a game-changer for the Coast by giving the city world-class entertainment and convention facilities, events, tourism experiences and attractions.
“We’ve already had strong interest from the global market since the decision was made in August 2017 to retain a casino licence on the Gold Coast – to build a new global tourism hub for the city.”
