WESTERN SYD PLAN

Business Events News - - News -

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.
