Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson

The Events Centre, Caloundra (TEC) is proud to be celebrating 40 years of providing
the Sunshine Coast with entertainment and community events, as well as business
events, gala dinners and many other events.

Initially named the Civic Cultural Centre, The Events Centre was built and
officially opened in 1980 by the former Landsborough Shire Council. In March 2005
the Centre undertook a re-branding program, creating The
Events Centre, Caloundra brand.

Over the past 40 years TEC has welcomed headline acts such as Billy Connolly, Lee
Kernaghan, America, Chris Isaak, Air Supply, INXS Michael Hutchence, Don McLean,
Paul Kelly, Suzi Quatro, Olivia Newton John, Little River Band/John Farnham, Midnight
Oil and many other great names, including emerging and local artists. TEC has
welcomed hundreds of thousands of patrons over the years, and provided millions of
dollars in economic benefit for Caloundra and the region.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said The Events Centre continued to be
industry leaders as the Sunshine Coast’s premier performing arts centre.

“Congratulations on 40-years of providing first-class entertainment to our region and a
rich array of opportunities for locals in the performing arts industry,” Mayor Jamieson

“Council was proud to invest $5.18 million in the most recent upgrade, which included
new state-of-the-art technology, catering facilities, a lift and the latest sound equipment
to ensure a superb visitor experience.

“If you haven’t visited The Events Centre lately, I highly recommend you check out their
great calendar of events and enjoy a show soon.”
