Gold Coast 2018 makes first signing for supplier category

Queensland-based software solutions company Centium Software has signed up as the latest sponsor of the 2018 Commonwealth Games multi-sport event in Gold Coast, Australia.

Centium Software has been named the official accommodation and transfers software supplier for the Games, which will take place from April 4-15, 2018.

The company will provide software to support accommodation and transfers to and from official points of entry during the Games. Centium Software will also provide Games organisers with a reservation system to manage accommodation property information and online payments.

Gold Coast 2018 chairman Nigel Chamier said Games organisers have been buoyed by the early interest and confidence shown in the event by the Australian commercial sector. “GC2018 represents an enormous opportunity for corporate Australia to align product and services with a world renowned brand,” Chamier said. “For Centium Software, it is a chance to once again show the world what amazing products this homegrown Queensland business is capable of delivering.

“This partnership also provides Centium Software staff with an opportunity to be involved in the delivery of the biggest event that may ever occur in their home state. And to be announcing the company as an official supplier of GC2018 just days short of our Two Years to Go celebrations on Monday April 4 is an indicator that our commercial programme is very well supported and well and truly on track.”

Centium Software becomes the first official supplier of the Games. It joins official partners Jupiters, Griffith University and TAFE Queensland, and official supporters KPMG and MinterEllison on the event’s sponsorship programme.
