With eight months to go until the opening ceremony, city Games bosses have already beaten milestones set by Delhi 2010 and Melbourne 2006.
Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) boss Bruce Robertson described Glasgow 2014 as "well ahead" in certain aspects.
In particular, he praised the ticketing programme, which saw more than 2.3million people apply for 1 million tickets.
And Mr Robertson, chair-man of the CGF Coordin-ation Commission, said the interest in volunteering was "staggering."
More than 50,000 people applied for 15,000 roles in a recruitment programme earlier this year.
Recruiters are currently interviewing candidates with the first roles being allocated last month.
Mr Robertson said: "It is well ahead of where Delhi was and also Melbourne in certain aspects.
"They are well positioned and the interest from the corporate community and the general populace is over and above what we saw in Melbourne, as a comparator.
"Glasgow has been creative in a number of areas - in the way they have run the volunteer progr-amme, you will see eventually there will be announcements in the New Year about the festivals and there are creative things around the opening ceremonies.
"There are a lot of interesting and different ideas that have been injected into it which are not just unique to Glasgow and the Commonwealth Games but events world-wide would do well to see what Glasgow has done."
Mr Robertson made the comments after the fifth Coordination Commission (CoCom) meeting to check progress ahead of the Games, next summer.
Over five days the CGF, along with Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee and other partners, explored four key areas - transport, security, Games-time command, control and communications and venues and overlay.
Mr Robertson added: "It is going to be very good.
"It is going to be really exciting as we get into the New Year and the Queen's Baton Relay comes back to Glasgow and Scotland, when people start to get really excited, even when it turns into January and it is 2014 and it's 'this year,' people will really start to get engaged and excited about it and they should.
"It is going to be a great event."
