Showcase and share expertise

Our research shows that conferences immediately expose delegates to new and innovative ideas, knowledge, techniques and technologies. It also shows that conferences enable local experts to showcase their work to global peers; develop the capability of early career delegates; and create opportunities for international research and collaboration.

Raise awareness

Conferences are an ideal opportunity to draw attention to your sector, to raise public awareness about your work, highlight key issues, propose solutions and effect positive change for your sector and wider communities.

Create outcomes

Beyond the event itself, your conference can create significant economic and social impact for Sydney, NSW and Australia. Our research shows that conferences raise Sydney’s profile and attract visitors that would otherwise not come here. It also shows that they attract talent for your sector, with 58% of conference attendees subsequently wanting to live and work or study here; and they contribute enormously to the economy, with annual direct expenditure from the sector in Australia valued at AUD$35.7 billion, pre-2020.
