2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games
Attended by 650,000 visitors, 6,600 athletes and team officials from 70 member nations and territories, the Commonwealth Games event spanned 11 days across 17 sporting venues.

Numerous portable barrier systems were deployed as part of an integrated perimeter security plan with temporary checkpoints operated by Australian Defence Force personnel, police and event security.
