Sydney number one for business events | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) has ranked Sydney 1st in Australia and 25th in the world for business events. This is the first year that ICCA has reported on business events held in Sydney without an operating international convention centre - due for completion in December, 2016. Sydney's closest Australian competitor is ranked 37th in the world according to ICCA's rankings, 12 places lower than Sydney. The strong reputation of the university and research sectors in New South Wales have supported international decision makers to choose Sydney for many leading conferences. BESydney has delivered more than A$1 billion economic impact for New South Wales over the past five years by securing big international business events. Looking ahead, BESydney has secured over 20 events for ICC Sydney and close to 100 additional events across the State. Find out more.
