Photo of the day: Fitting finale for 50 years of incentives celebration

A spectacular fireworks display over Sydney Harbour’s Goat Island was the culmination of a five-day familiarisation visit, from May 26 to 30, for 21 corporate clients, travel agents and media from China, India, Japan and Taiwan, as part of Business Events Sydney’s (BESydney) 50th anniversary year.

According to BESydney CEO, Lyn Lewis-Smith, incentive gatherings and corporate meetings from Asia now make up half of the bureau’s business event wins each year, more than doubling over the past decade.

“We were one of the first Australian convention bureaus to commit to the Asian market, and those longstanding ties have given us a great foundation to continue to grow,” said Lewis-Smith.
