IFEA World Festival And Event City Award : IFEA World Festival And Event City Award
The NSW Events Calendar has positioned Sydney as a leader for transformative and ground- breaking events. They provide an important way to strengthen community engagement and pride, increasing local participation and advocacy for Sydney and what’s on in Sydney. The NSW Government is committed to a strong, managed events program through the NSW Events Calendar built around five same time same place “signature” events and supported by a series of feature events that are exclusive to Sydney and NSW. Event partners, industry and the community all play a part in its development and success as Sydney continues to nurture, attract and develop world- class events. The Calendar brings significant benefits to Sydney’s status as Australia’s global city and the world’s best festival and events city1. It encompasses drawcard events capable of unlocking the economic and city branding potential that our outstanding festivals and events can offer. Each year, hundreds of festivals and events provide the foundation on which Sydney continues to build its reputation as a culturally-rich and entertaining city willing to embrace new and unique ideas. Sport, arts, entertainment, cultural and business events showcase the expertise, facilities, creativity, energy and professional excellence which make Sydney a world-class location for events. Sydney’s festivals and events are recognised as integral to the city’s attractiveness as a place to live, work, invest and visit. 1Sydney won ‘Top Global City’ at the inaugural 2010 International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA) World Festival and Event City Awards Sydney was named the World’s best festival and event city in the ‘over 1 million population category’.
