Business Events Sydney’s (BESydney) 2012/13 edition of the Sydney and New South Wales Event Planner’s Guide (EPG) was launched last week at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo 2012 (AIME) on 21 February.
A comprehensive resource featuring the most up to date event and meeting planning information, the annual Sydney and New South Wales EPG is an extensive 90-plus page free ‘one-stop-shop’ for event planners around the world.
The latest Sydney and New South Wales Event Planner’s Guide has recently been launched by Business Events Sydney.
This year’s EPG profiles how the Sydney event experience is unique, innovative and cost effective, and provides capacities, details and contacts for over 200 Sydney and New South Wales event suppliers.
“Event planners have long been attracted to Sydney’s glittering harbour, ease of access, cutting-edge venues and accommodation, and no doubt its ‘bright lights, big city feel’. And this year we really wanted to reinforce the breadth and depth of the city’s offer,” said Lyn Lewis-Smith, chief executive officer of BESydney.
“There’s certainly no grounds for any ‘been there, done that’ sentiment. Sydney is a dynamic, diverse and vibrant city. The Sydney and New South Wales Event Planner’s Guide is the perfect vehicle to showcase what really draws events back to the harbour city time and time again,” she added.
“In this year’s EPG we highlight the many billions of dollars’ worth of new developments underway in the city, we quiz some famous locals about their ‘secret Sydney’, reveal some of the city’s event jewels and also provide an insight into the diverse options that exist throughout regional NSW.”
This year will also be the second year that BESydney has taken its popular EPG online. A digital edition will offer event planners a heightened level of interactivity and the ability to access the resource on the go.
“Many of our clients that use our free event planning service, AccessNSW, are glued to their iPads! This year’s digital guide has been developed for iPads and traditional desktop and laptop computers, and includes hundreds of direct links through to suppliers and video content to bring the city to life,” adds Lyn Lewis-Smith.
Both the digital and print editions of the 2012/13 Sydney and New South Wales Event Planner’s Guide are available now. The digital edition will accessible via the Business Events Sydney Website.
The guide includes information on venues to cater for events for 2 to 20,000, or more as well as extensive accommodation options and industry suppliers. Also included are insights into the best ‘Culinary Tourism’ options for groups, private dining for business events, some of the city’s lesser known and much lopved attractions and more.
