Welcome to the Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro 2012 – another exciting international event for Queensland’s iconic Gold Coast.
The Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro 2012 is a major event on the surfing calendar, attracting more than 52,000 spectators last year.
This year’s action in the water will be augmentted by the glamour of the Association of Surfing Professionals World Surfing Awards at the Gold Coast Exhibition Centre.
The Gold Coast is cementing its status as a premier sporting events destination, with a growing calendar of attractions supported by Events Queensland. With its world-class beaches, climate and hospitality, the Gold Coast is also known as being famous for fun – whether it’s the surfing, theme parks or fine dining, there is so much to see and do.As Chairman of Tourism Australia and Events Queensland, I understand the importance of events in driving visitation, showcasing the region and providing vital support to the local tourism industry.
Support for the Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro is part of a strong commitment by Events Queensland to bring major events to the region. These events include the Australian Surf Lifesaving Championships, Kellogg’s Nutrigrain IronMan Series and IronWoman Series, Coolangatta Gold, Gold Coast Airport Marathon, Pan Pacific Masters Games, BMW Magic Millions, the NRL Indigenous All Stars match, Armor All Gold Coast 600, HSBC Sevens World Series and more.
