Business as usual for SCEC

In partnership with:

The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (pictured) and Sydney Entertainment Centre have welcomed the NSW Government’s announcement of a timeline for the creation of the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct at Darling Harbour.


The Centres’ chief executive Ton van Amerongen said the creation of the Precinct was evidence of the overwhelming success of both venues since they opened in the 1980s.


 “Over the past 25 years we have been responsible for attracting about 20 million people through Darling Harbour, during major international conferences and forums like APEC and World Youth Day, through to world-class sporting events such as the 2000 Olympics,” van Amerongen said.


 “In addition to that, the Sydney Entertainment Centre has staged some of the world’s greatest acts and accommodated 26 million very happy fans over its 30-year life.


 “Throughout that time we have maintained our position as the leading venues in Australia and one of the best convention centres in the Asia Pacific region, contributing well over 10 billion dollars to the economy and continuing to attract new business.”


 With demand for the Centres’ facilities now outstripping capacity, van Amerongan says the redevelopment should be considered “a mark of our success”.


 He also said that it would be business as usual for clients booked at the venues through to November 30, 2013.
