Sydney came alive as Vivid Sydney lit up the city in a spectacular show of light, music and ideas that coloured the city with creativity and inspiration. We took the opportunity to host international famils, the annual What is the bureau? seminar and cocktail networking event, and undertook targeted media activity to profile the potential that events such as Vivid Sydney have as anchor points for business events programming. Major events that dot the New South Wales calendar each year provide great opportunities for savvy planners to maximise budgets through co-operative marketing, boost attendance and add that crucial element of excitement. Make sure you check out what's happening in town before you lock in the dates for your next event!
Savvy is a great way to describe the business event industry in NSW at the moment. New venues that will shape the business event landscape continue to be planned, and the industry is collaborating more than ever with a firm focus on innovation and best practice. This is really an exciting time of change, which is presenting real opportunities for business event organisers.
Until next time
CEO, Business Events Sydney
The team at Business Events Sydney (BESydney) was impressed with the 5-star luxury of the newly renovated Park Hyatt Sydney.
All guest rooms have been redesigned and reconfigured to feel more like apartments and a contemporary colour palette of chocolate, beige and white contributes to the relaxed and sophisticated feel.
As many event planners would know, high-quality private dining areas are often a sought after rarity in many cities. But as more and more organisers are seeking private dining spaces for VIP dinners, media events, or business lunches, Sydney's restaurants and venues are really coming to the table.
Following the success of our past Separate Tables publication, here is a guide to just some of Sydney's best private dining spaces.
