It’s been 25 years to the week that Sydney was announced as host for the 2000 Olympic Games, and now the harbour-side city has snatched another event win. This time, it’s the 2023 UN Work Safety Congress. The event, which will take place at the ICC Sydney, will see up to 4000 work health and safety experts coalesce to discuss different approaches. The win comes off the back of 10 years of government campaigning, and will inject approximately $10 million into the state economy.
I bet CEO of BESydney Lyn Lewis-Smith jumped as high as John Fahey circa 1993 upon hearing the announcement.
