At the core of GTM’s philosophy is bringing people together as one big community. Or as we like
to call it, comooooonity.
Our community program in each region has grown year on year and we are thrilled to develop
relationships and get to know our newest friends, creatives and local businesses on the Sunshine

visit and here’s what we have in store for the Sunshine Coast.
