M anaging director of Business Events Sydney (formerly the SCVB), Jon Hutchison, says the new arrangement will see NSW Government support for the bureau more than double from its 2006-07 level, enabling it to substantially increase the number of business events it targets. “Thanks to our new partnership with Events NSW, we are able to boost our activities, both here and overseas, so we will have the ability to bid for many more meetings,” Mr Hutchison said. “More bids will mean more events, which ultimately translates to a greater economic impact not just for the business events industry but also for the wider community of NSW.” Both organisations have jointly finalised their 2008-09 partnership agreement, creating an alliance that will bring additional strength to NSW’s campaign to win more major events and business events. Events NSW CEO Geoff Parmenter said his organisation would be working closely with Business Events Sydney in a pioneering model for industry-government cooperation, enabling the two bodies to share resources and information and oversee a united approach to winning events. “This new relationship gives us the means to unlock the true potential of the NSW business events industry as identified by the O’Neill report into the events sector, and drive more business to NSW,” Mr Parmenter said. Mr Hutchison said the agreement was a strategic partnership that would draw on the support of the BES’s member base. Mr Hutchison said BES had increased its staff in the UK and Hong Kong and would be lifting its sales, research and marketing efforts in Australia. The formalisation of the BES and Events NSW relationship follows a string of major bid wins for Sydney in recent times including the 8000-delegate Asia Pacific Life Insurance Council (APLIC) Congress in 2011, the 8000-delegate World Conference on Lung Cancer in 2013 and the XXXII International Congress of Audiology for 1600 delegates in 2014. Together these events are worth an estimated $43.6 million to the local economy.
