The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre has won the World Travel Award for Australasias Leading Conference Centre for the third consecutive year. The World Travel Awards are voted on by travel professionals around the globe.

The Centre was chosen from a field of six finalists, including conference centres in Auckland, Cairns, Melbourne and Wellington, as well as the luxurious Langham Hotel Auckland.

Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said, I am very proud to head a team of dedicated and professional people, who are committed to achieving quality in everything they do. This award recognises the quality of their work as they continually exceed clients expectations and set new benchmarks for our industry.

Mr van Amerongen said the award also underlined Sydneys leadership in the business events arena as confirmed by the recent 2007 International Congress & Convention Association rankings, which place Sydney as Australias number one city for conventions.

The centre plays a major role in Sydneys meeting calendar, hosting a string of large events such as the 2007 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum. It will also be the venue for Sydneys latest event win, the 2013 World Conference on Lung Cancer, which will attract up to 8000 delegates.

Sydney is an exceptionally appealing city, but it is also an exceptionally professional city and, in an increasingly competitive environment, we continue to work hard to win our business and please our clients, Mr van Amerongen said.
