Displaced Sydney Events Head for Alternative Venues

February 26, 2013

A series of trade events will look to alternative venues as the closure of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre nears for the redevelopment of the Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct (SICEEP).

Major shows including the Australian Fitness & Health Expo will relocate to Melbourne until the new facilities in Sydney come online. Other events including the 2014 edition Rotary International Convention and Australian International Motor Show will relocate to alternative venues such as Sydney Olympic Park, Moore Park, the Australian Technology Park and the temporary Glebe Island Expo.

IT event, Vforum, is currently looking for an alternative venue in another state, while the New South Wales government is searching for a temporary home in Sydney for the annual IT trade fair, CeBIT Australia, expected to attract more than 32,000 visitors and 500 exhibitors.
