The Sunshine Coast, Australia is not just another pretty face – it’s a region that has invested heavily in its digital infrastructure. The emerging CBD is a smart city and is equipped with WiFi 6, the latest standard for wireless networks, offering speeds up to three times faster than its predecessor.

This stunning piece of sub-tropical coastline will host seven Olympic and two Paralympic events during the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, offering an exciting moment for athletes and sports enthusiasts, but also a tremendous opportunity for tech entrepreneurs in the sports technology sector.

This makes it an ideal location for tech companies to test and trial their new technologies. Whether it’s IoT devices, sports-tech applications, or next-gen consumer electronics, the robust digital backbone ensures that businesses can test their technology in a real-world environment.

The Sunshine Coast, is an unbeatable location for businesses looking to establish, relocate or expand.
