Sydney tops Cvent’s meeting destination list in Australia & Oceania

Sydney has taken the number one spot on Cvent’s list of the Top 10 Meeting Destinations for meetings and events in Australia and Oceania.

Australian cities were previously featured in one Asia Pacific list, but due to increased sourcing volume to the region, Cvent unveiled Asia and Australia & Oceania as two standalone lists this year.

Cairns and Nadi were new to the list which is based on meeting and event booking activity across Cvent’s venue sourcing sites, including the Cvent Supplier Network.

“It’s fantastic to know that Sydney has received the accolade of Top Meeting Destination,” said Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of Business Events Sydney.

“We have an undeniable appetite for innovation, a high degree of professionalism and the infrastructure to support productivity and business – particularly within the Asia Pacific. Combined with our positive historical track record, this title as the number one meetings destination in Australia and Oceania will be a boon for the interest we already receive across our strength sectors such as professional services, technology, and health and science.”

Cairns is new to Cvent’s Top 10 list at number 9.

Cvent’s Top 10 Meeting Destinations in Australia & Oceania are:

  1. Sydney
  2. Melbourne
  3. Brisbane
  4. Gold Coast
  5. Perth
  6. Auckland
  7. Adelaide
  8. Queenstown
  9. Cairns
  10. Nadi

“Meeting and event activity in the region is booming and it is exciting to highlight new cities that have been successful in positioning themselves as top destinations to host meetings and events,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent Hospitality Cloud.
