SYDNEY: THE MAJOR EVENTS CAPITAL OF AUSTRALIA
Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “With our unique destination appeal and ‘only in Sydney’ events, there is no denying that Sydney is strongly positioned to welcome visitors from across Australia and the globe.”
"Upcoming highlights include the English Premier League football giants Arsenal FC playing two Sydney-exclusive matches against Sydney FC and the Western Sydney Wanderers, the Australian premiere of Beautiful – the Carol King Musical, the 2017 NRL Grand Final, and of course Vivid Sydney from 26 May to 17 June.
"A significant part to attracting major events and growing the tourism economy is ensuring the right infrastructure is in place.
“Sydney has entered a new era of event capability with the opening of ICC Sydney, which has cemented the city’s reputation as the one of the world’s most desirable event destinations, as shown at this year’s Australia Tourism Exchange,” Ms Chipchase said.
Other major infrastructure and transport projects include rebuilding the city’s major stadia network, the new Sydney Metro, CBD & South East Light Rail, Barangaroo Ferry Wharf and Western Sydney Airport.
