So many things have changed in the past year. We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of living, new ways of doing business, and new ways of making connections. Throughout all of this, the city you love has been changing while you’ve been away, so it’s looking its sparkling best for your return. We can’t wait for you to see it – new hotels, new venues with views, new tastes and new experiences everywhere you turn.

You’ll still find the same energy, that same Sydney vibe. And of course, that inspirational harbour and natural beauty you know and love.

Sydney has such a unique combination of culture, creativity and commercial strengths. This is what keeps business humming here. There are always new opportunities in a city with entrepreneurship, creative spirit, big business and academic excellence in equal measure.

This is why it’s got to be Sydney for your next business event.

Sydney’s expert venues have got COVID Safe meetings mastered, so you can focus on the program and participant experience. 

When it’s time to leave the comfort of your meeting space, there’s so much to do in Sydney for you and your members to re-engage and reconnect.

Book your 2021 business event in Greater Sydney, Newcastle or Wollongong by 5 pm (AEST) Monday, 31 May 2021 to take advantage of the Kickstart 2021 offer.
