Business Events Sydney (BESydney) has announced a series of international bid wins over the festive season that will bring in an additional $13 million in direct expenditure to the local economy from 2023 through to 2026.
The Global Health Security Conference 2024 is among the new health and life science events secured, which is anticipated to bring 800 delegates to the International Convention Centre Sydney from 18-21 June 2024.
The International Symposium on Pediatric Neuro-Oncology 2026 is also expected to attract 800 delegates from 10-12 June 2026.
“It is great to see a strong global interest in Sydney for health and life sciences events coming through, particularly as the NSW Government and the university and private sector are investing in the development of the Westmead Health and Innovation District which will soon be a global centre for new discoveries, commercialisation, treatment, education and training,” said BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith.
BESydney also secured five major global corporate and incentive events that will see Sydney welcoming almost 1,500 delegates from Hong Kong, India, Singapore, UAE, London and Malaysia in February, March and April including Mahindra & Mahindra Dealers Incentive and Hyundai National Dealers Conference.
