SCEC calls for memorabilia to mark 25 years


The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre is calling on the events industry to share images from its past as it prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Centre director of marketing and sales Amanda Anker said the venue was compiling a collection of memorabilia to mark the milestone.


The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre was opened by the Queen on May 4, 1988 as part of Australia’s Bicentenary celebrations.

“Over the past 25 years, there have been many exciting and colourful events held at the Centre. We’re hoping that some of our industry colleagues will have photos, videos or DVDs of those great events, which they can share with us for our trip down memory lane,” Anker said.

Anyone with suitable items can email jpeg images to [email protected] or call 02 9282 5051 to discuss postage and handling of items.

Anker said the Centre would be acknowledging the most impressive contribution made before April 30, with a prize of lunch for two in the Bayside Lounge.

The venue will close in December this year to allow for the creation of a new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct, scheduled to open in late 2016.
