EEAA provides latest update on Sydney’s Darling Harbour
March 19, 2012

The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) is hosting its second project update on the redevelopment of Darling Harbour in partnership with Infrastructure NSW on Friday 23rd March.

The project update will cover the latest news about the redevelopment, keys issues related to the timetable, impacts during the build phase and strategies for business continuity.
EEAA General Manager, Joyce DiMascio says that the association has continued to work with Infrastructure NSW and other arms of Government over the past month on critical issues related to business continuity.

DiMascio explains "we have undertaken an audit of the events that will be affected by the proposed closure and are working with the Government to assess the options being proposed as alternative sites for holding events during the proposed closure period of Darling Harbour.

"Numerous high level meetings and workshops have been held between the NSW Government and those who will be impacted by the proposed closure of Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, exploring the options and trying to find workable solutions.

"Infrastructure NSW, Destination NSW and Business Events Sydney are all keen to keep business in Sydney and working with exhibition and event organisers to find suitable alternative sites that will work and deliver clients a quality experience and organisers a financially viable outcome."

The EEAA Consultative Committee which was formed to provide advice to Infrastructure NSW on the logistics and operational viability of the proposed interim facility, have visited the site and provided detailed feedback.

Presenters at the second project update will include: Tim Parker, Project Director of Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct, Infrastructure NSW and Peter Thorpe, General Manager of Sydney Showground.

The EEAA is the peak association for the exhibition and event industry, representing organisers, venues and suppliers. As a not-for-profit organisation, EEAA's primary objective is to maintain high industry standards and ensure industry growth by promoting the professionalism of EEAA members and unique benefits offered by exhibitions.
