March CEO Update

31 Mar 2019

Asia is a significant market for the business events industry and during March, ICC Sydney travelled to multiple countries within the region as we held our second, and now annual, CEO Asia Roadshow. Taking in Tokyo, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Singapore, the mission saw us further strengthen our ties and relationships in these cities with business event agents, corporate firms, associations and media.

Asia presents opportunities that require much more than what many may see as a ‘single brush strategy’. Each country, and region within the country, can have their own diverse economies and cultures, which require a unique approach. My recent blog explores this view and provides further insights on our approach to this market.

Since ICC Sydney opened in December 2016, we have been immensely fortunate to have been surrounded by such a supportive and diverse network of stakeholders – from regional producers to First Nation community members, universities and business leaders. To honour their contribution and further expand our Legacy Program, we recently thanked our supporters with a celebration and acknowledgement through our Advocates Club. This club will serve as a platform to continue to bring opportunities to clients, visitors and the community, with the passionate members being outstanding performers in their fields.
I encourage you to speak to us today to find out how you and your event can connect with our ever-growing broadspectum of touchpoints in the community.

Warm regards
Geoff Donaghy
