Do we need to reposition Sydney?

Wednesday 22 June 2022

Do we need to reposition Sydney? That was the question posed at the Committee for Sydney’s ‘Turn on the bright lights - reopening Sydney to international visitors’ industry briefing.

On the 15th June Kelsian Group’s General Manager Marine Business Development, Anthony Howarth, joined the Committee of Sydney and a panel of industry experts from the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Fringe, the 24-Hour Commissioner to discuss if Sydney needs to rebuild, reposition or rethink its offering to encourage people back to our biggest city and international gateway.

The industry briefing covered the need for "reforging" a stronger and better cultural and visitor economy for Sydney and examined some innovative ideas including free travel to city centres on key train lines, arts and culture concierges, more mixed use spaces in our city centres, and industry joining forces to unlock and engage much larger audiences.

Anthony reinforced Kelsian and SeaLink’s commitment to recovering the Sydney visitor economy - “At Kelsian we are focusing our efforts on building our tourism products to be the ‘places where International tourists want to visit because they are the places locals love to be’ and our investment in ‘The Jackson’, our new $15m superyacht styled bar, dining and function vessel is a world class addition to Sydney’s leisure and entertainment assets.”

Thanks Anthony for sharing your extensive knowledge and experience to those that attended the industry briefing.
