The Olympic Procurement Landscape

The Olympic Games are not just a sporting spectacle; they are also a massive logistical and economic undertaking that involves extensive planning and procurement. The Brisbane 2032 Olympics will see an estimated $180 billion spent on goods and services, offering a broad spectrum of opportunities for businesses of all sizes​ (Business Queensland)​.


Key Areas of Opportunity

Procurement for the Olympics covers a vast array of categories, including but not limited to:

  • Infrastructure: Building and upgrading venues, transportation networks, and lodging facilities.
  • Technology: Providing IT support, security systems, and digital infrastructure for the Games.
  • Services: Catering, logistics, waste management, and other essential services that support the day-to-day operations of the event.

The Queensland Government has emphasised the importance of local and regional businesses in the procurement process, aiming to boost local economies and support sustainable business practices. The ‘Buy Queensland’ approach prioritises local suppliers to ensure that the economic benefits of the Games spread across the state​ (Ministerial Media Statements)​.

This includes a “Ready, Set, Go” approach which helps businesses become “match-fit” for the Games—ensuring they are capable of meeting the high standards required for Olympic projects​ (Business Queensland)​.

The strategy also involves:
