Sydney's Industry Sectors

Thanks to its state-of-the-art facilities, strengths in key industry sectors, and flexible accommodation options, Sydney has a growing reputation for attracting and delivering large-scale business events. 


Sydney has a highly skilled and educated workforce, and is globally recognised as having competitive strengths in key industry sectors like financial and professional services, information technology, health, education and research. More than 600 multinational companies run their Asia Pacific operations from Sydney.

These industries are supported by Cooperative Research Centres, centres of excellence, specialised research centres and medical health institutes.

Further adding to its business event capabilities, Sydney recently welcomed the new International Convention Centre Sydney, which can hold three concurrent events and has a total capacity of 12,000 people.
