Meeting city

Reliable, experienced, welcoming and passionate about events. In Sydney, you're in safe hands.

 

Sydney is a proven event host. Known the world over as Australia’s ‘harbour city’, it’s blessed with stunning natural landscapes and a near-perfect climate. It’s also home to an established and professional event services industry, and world-class meeting infrastructure and accommodation options. Just as importantly, it offers easy accessibility between the airport, conference facilities and the city centre, and is a safe and stable destination for international visitors and locals alike.

Of course, it has a culture to match, with a dynamic dining scene, a love of the arts, a passion for sport, and a naturally exuberant spirit. All things considered, there’s simply no better place to hold your next event. Small or large, your conference or incentive program will be perfectly catered for in Australia’s global city.

Host to high-profile global events such as the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, 2007 APEC Leaders Conference, 2008 World Youth Day and 2014 G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting, Sydney offers a safe pair of hands for your event.
