This year Sydney Olympic Park celebrates 20 years since it played host to the “world’s best games ever”. Now, it is one of the Australia’s leading destinations for business events.
The good news is that the park is now able to confirm bookings with arrival dates from July 2020 for up to 5,000 guests indoors and up to 10,000 guests outdoors. The remaining restrictions are expected to be lifted in the coming months.
Perfect Location for Events
Boasting 12 venues with more than 100 indoor and outdoor function spaces and a growing community hub of residents and businesses, Sydney Olympic Park, surrounded by 430 hectares of picturesque parklands, is today the centrepiece of Australia’s largest city.
Renowned for its flexibility, Sydney Olympic Park offers organisers the largest selection of conferencing facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. It is known for its ability to use multiple venues in one location, the convenience of a central point of contact for event enquiries, plus a reputation for delivering exceptional events.
With the new M4 motorway tunnel, the park is now just 18 minutes’ drive from the city. The Park continues to evolve and prosper with new attractions and opportunities for event planners ranging from intimate corporate meetings to large-scale incentive rewards, exhibitions and team-building activities.
The Precinct currently houses five onsite hotels with another due for completion in 2022, offering event organisers over 1,100 rooms and all levels of accommodation options ranging from the luxurious five-star Pullman, the four-and-a-half star Novotel, the four-star Quest Serviced Apartments, the three-and-a-half-star Hotel Ibis and the two-star Ibis Budget Hotel. All hotels are conveniently located in the centre of the park, within walking distance to all venues and the train station.
