New era emerging for Sydney’s most iconic meetings and events venue

The General Manager of one of Sydney’s most iconic and popular destination venues at Sydney’s Luna Park, has heralded the expansion of Sydney’s capability to attract international events through the soon to open ICC, as a giant boon to all local operators.
Coming off two record years for meetings and events business across the 13 available venues at Sydney’s Luna Park, General Manager James Granter said the growth potential in the industry would be fully realised by the diversity of offering Sydney will be able to boast with the ICC’s opening in December.

“We have taken a very collaborative approach with the ICC as they bring a massive opportunity to target large scale events that can roll out across the city – and Luna Park is in a prime position with our wide range of scale and offers in our world beating picturesque location,” he said.

He pointed out the thriving venues industry could therefore also cater for domestic and local requirements across a diversity of locations while new business was being attracted to the enlarged Darling Harbour facilities.

Granter is currently working with other attractions in Sydney as part of his role as Councillor with the NSW Tourism Industry Advisory Council.

“The members of this group offer some of the world’s most outstanding venues and destinations all here in our city – it makes perfect sense for us to work together so Sydney as a whole is seen to deliver a world class experience for the business events market,” he said.

“Visitors to Sydney and our own locals are often looking for an authentic experience of a city alongside the imperative requirements of scale and adaptable facilities. All our members can help enhance that offer in Sydney.”

Granter said his team at Luna Park Venues prided themselves on a flexible approach, which could include programming the historic and engaging aspects of the theme park as a setting for dinners and showcases or it could provide state of the art facilities, such as 100MB per second wireless connectivity in the full range of flexible meetings locations ranging from the Crystal Palace Ballroom to the waterfront Sunset Room or the enormous Big Top.

“With Sydney Harbour such a feature of the city’s attractiveness, all our collaborating attractions can put guests on the water, over the water, viewing the harbour or even under the harbour.”
