WESTERN SYD PLAN
THE NSW Government has announced plans to drive visitor growth in Western Sydney with the release of its Western Sydney Visitor Economy Strategy.
As part of the propsal, money will go towards driving business events to the region.
The Western Sydney Business Chamber and the Western Sydney Business Connection will receive $200,000 to deliver several activities.
These will help the govt determine the most effective model to deliver future business event initiatives to Western Syd.
Initial plans are to attract not only larger events, but also smaller gatherings that Western Sydney can accommodate at venues such as Rosehill, Rooty Hill RSL, Penrith Panthers or Sydney Olympic Park.
The Western Sydney Business Connection gm Amanda Brisot said Western Sydney was important to the NSW visitor economy as it accounted for one in five overnight visitors to the Greater Sydney region.
“We look forward to capitalising on the unique opportunities presented by this significant population growth,” Brisot said.
