Sydney’s partners help the city to shine for Dreamtime

Tuesday 8 December 2015

Collaboration is key to the awe-inspiring Sydney educational Business Events Sydney (BESydney) has curated for 15 international corporate incentive agents and 3 journalists arriving in Sydney tomorrow as part of Tourism Australia’s Dreamtime 2015.

In Sydney for four days (9-12 December), delegates from India, Korea and Hong Kong will experience a bespoke program designed and delivered by BESydney, in partnership with the New South Wales (NSW) Government and the convention bureau’s world-class event service supplier, attraction and venue partners.

Delighting and exciting both first-time and repeat visitors alike, BESydney’s educational program will shine a light on the diverse regions on Sydney’s doorstep and the best team-building activities the state has to offer. The harbour city’s leading incentive products will be on show, along with some of Sydney’s best-kept secrets to give Dreamtime guests a taste of what makes Sydney one of the world’s most exciting business event destinations.

"We wouldn’t have been able to deliver such a stimulating program for these top incentive agents without the support of our partners,” said Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of BESydney.

“They have pulled together in typical Sydney style to ensure our guests feel right at home, sampling first-hand how rewarding, motivating and inspiring this city is for corporate incentive programs.”

InterContinental Sydney, for example, will host all of the delegates and media representatives in Sydney. Guests will be treated to VIP service – including a dedicated, alternate entrance and reception desk to assist with the smooth delivery of the program, and uninterrupted views overlooking Sydney's Eastern Harbour and suburbs from their luxury hotel rooms – all in a convenient Circular Quay location.  

"InterContinental Sydney creates memorable, ‘in the know’ incentive experiences for our delegates,” said Annabel Mendelson, Director of Meetings and Events of InterContinental Sydney. “Our hotel is located within the beautiful, historical Treasury Building and our proximity to Sydney's iconic landmarks, such as the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Botanical Garden, makes us the perfect venue for our international visitors to explore Sydney."

Other major contributors to the program include Verve Creative Events, Luna Park Sydney, This Space + Events, MV Epicure, BridgeClimb Sydney, Merlin Entertainments Group and the Sydney Cricket Ground.
