Business events booming in Sydney

It’s full steam ahead for business events in the Harbour City, with BESydney releasing its pipeline of upcoming events until 2030.

Announcing the results from IMEX in Frankfurt, Germany, BESydney says the full schedule of business events in the next six years and beyond demonstrates the lure of the NSW capital as a host city.

“This week, our forward pipeline ticked over to 103 business events choosing Sydney that will generate more than $507 million in direct expenditure for the local economy between now and 2030,” says BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith.

“As well as attracting 128,000 delegates to boost the local visitor economy, the conference programming at these events will give more Australians access to the world’s best practice and thinking on AI, biodiversity, education, engineering, defence and aerospace, critical minerals and all aspects of human and animal health, as well as significant social issues of concern to us all, such as gender-based violence and ageing.

“We have also seen some fantastic market turnaround from the corporate meetings and incentives side of our business, where global corporations are choosing Sydney to rebuild corporate culture and drive innovation, educate, incentivise and inspire their top talent.” 

BESydney works closely with International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), forming a powerful bidding duo to attract business events to Sydney.

“At ICC Sydney, we take pride in delivering our trusted event services for clients while driving important social and economic legacies through extraordinary events,” says ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy.

“Alongside our partner, BESydney, we look forward to welcoming delegates to the spectrum of events that are sure to spark solutions to the universal issues of today and tomorrow.”
