Sibos conference a great win for Sydney

Release Date: 15/07/2014
The Sydney Business Chamber has congratulated the NSW Government and Business Events Sydney for securing the Sibos Conference in 2018.
“Sibos is the premier conference in the world for the financial services industry and will be a great boost for the local economy, injecting around $50 million,” said Patricia Forsythe, Executive Director of the Sydney Business Chamber.
“Globally, it is currently a very competitive bidding market and this decision endorses the decision of the NSW Government to make the re-development of the International Convention Centre a priority when it came to power.
“There’s no doubt that Sydney was losing out to other cities because the old convention centre was simply too small and had not kept pace with technological advancements.
“2018 will be a perfect time to showcase Barangaroo as our new banking and finance hub to the world’s key finance executives, and I expect a lot of business will be done around the conference itself.
“Winning the bid involved a strong partnership between a number of government agencies and the private sector to showcase the best of Sydney and its offering as a key business centre and convention city.
“The Sydney Business Chamber is working very closely with Business Events Sydney on our bid to host the World Chambers Congress in Sydney in 2017 – an announcement on that host city will be made later this year.
