Business Events News - - News -

SYD­NEY has scored a big win, hav­ing se­cured the host­ing rights for the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion’s SAP Field Kick-Off Meet­ing (SAP FKOM) in 2018 and 2019.

The event is ex­pected to at­tract 2,800 del­e­gates who will hear SAP’s busi­ness strat­egy for the year ahead.

SAP FKOM will be held at ICC Syd­ney and it will be the first time the con­fer­ence has been held in Aus­tralia.

BESyd­ney ceo Lyn LewisSmith said the event re­in­forced Syd­ney’s strengths in host­ing ma­jor int’l tech con­fer­ences.

“The in­ter­est from the tech sec­tor in Syd­ney is truly ex­cit­ing. We are thrilled to have se­cured the host­ing rights for the Asia-Pa­cific SAP FKOM in 2018 and 2019,” she said.

Syd­ney won the bid based on its rep­u­ta­tion in sup­port­ing in­no­va­tion, the city’s busi­ness events ca­pa­bil­i­ties as well as the state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy at the ICC Syd­ney, she said.

“Syd­ney has se­cured some of the world’s most im­por­tant ICT con­fer­ences and events in­clud­ing the OpenS­tack Sum­mit 2017,” said Lewis-Smith.

SAP is the third largest soft­ware man­u­fac­turer based on mar­ket cap­i­tal­i­sa­tion.
