Sydney, Australia Meeting Planning Overview

Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales, is a dynamic business hub that boasts stunning natural landscapes, a cosmopolitan culture and a year-round temperate climate. This 220-year old city offers world-class MICE infrastructure, making it a favourite destination for event planners and tourists alike. They can choose from over 1,000 unique venues, ranging from boardrooms and exclusive dining rooms to social venues. Aside from the ease of doing business, Sydney offers extensive accommodation options and a comprehensive public transport network. The accommodation types include over 33,000 hotel/motel rooms and serviced apartments across the city and its outskirts.

One of the city's most renowned event venues is the Sydney Olympic Park, which is an all-encompassing business precinct that includes 22,000 square metres of exhibition space and over 100 different function spaces. The Star hotel in Sydney is a luxury venue that offers new premium dining, shopping, entertainment and accommodation options, and its dedicated events space, The Event Centre, boasts 2,200 square metres and the capacity to host up to 3,000 people. Hyatt Regency Sydney is another popular Sydney hotel with 892 guest rooms and 3,700 square meters of event space, including two ballrooms and 21 meeting rooms. Those looking for a custom-designed event venue can opt for Dockside Pavilion Darling Harbour that offers an event space of 1,470 square metres and can accommodate up to 2,000 guests.

The bustling city also has an abundance of cultural attractions, such as the grandiose Sydney Sandstone heritage buildings that include the Town Hall and the Queen Victoria Building. Other famous attractions include the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Observatory. Visitors to the city can also wander through Paddington or Surry Hills at night to see the amazing range of international restaurants, colourful locals, and pumping night clubs, such as Selina's Nightclub at the historic Coogee Bay Hotel. Or, if they're looking for a more low-key venue, they can enjoy serene waterfront dining at one of the many restaurants lining the harbour such as the Catalina in Rose Bay.
