As part of BESydney’s business events financial support, a new program the Ignite Sydney Business Event Fund has been launched in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam for corporate meetings, incentives and conferences held in Greater Sydney in 2023. Lyn Lewis-Smith, BESydney CEO, said, “It is an exciting initiative, to stimulate a return to hosting incredible corporate events and incentives in our harbour city.” She further added, “We want to support our important meeting planners and encourage the return of our Asian incentive and corporate market to Sydney to experience the vibrancy and energy of the city, as well as our new products, attractions and venues.” The BESydney funding will offset costs for events with 200-400 delegates, whereby the client will receive support to the value of AU$40 per person and for events with a group size over 401 delegates, it will be deferred to a customised funding offer. Applications will be assessed on a first-come first-served basis.
