The annual Event Summit will return to Sydney this October and will be free for event stakeholders for the first time in its 3 year history, in a show of support for the event industry.

Recognising that the Summit is an important opportunity for the industry to come together, organisers have worked with their amazing partners to reschedule the 2020 Event Summit in October, to support the events community to bounce back crisis.

Full line-up of speakers and partners announced: Tuesday 18 August.

Held across two iconic Sydney venues on one day - The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Yallamundi Rooms – Sydney Opera House, and supported with catering from Trippas White Group, the Event Summit will bring together the events industry and help it get back on its feet.

Registrations to the event normally start at $990.00, however in 2020, registrations are free to any professional that has a touch-point in their business with Events. On registration, attendees will have the option to make a non-compulsory donation of $50 - $150 to Support Act.


While the full 2020 line-up of speakers is yet to be announced, tech heavyweights NEC Australia have been confirmed to host a session about their innovative facial recognition technology.

Hardware and Onelove, the producers of Festival X, will join the Summit to talk about the complexities of launching a new event brand to market, in addition to Johnny Little, VP of Tough Mudder who will join live from New York.

Past speakers include The Australian Open, The Glastonbury Festival, The Amazing Race, Splendour In The Grass, The NFL, Sail GP, The Melbourne Cup, Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council, Destination NSW, Department of Premier and Cabinet, NSW and Victorian Police. 

As in previous years, the sold-out Summit will showcase both international and Australia events, with event professionals discussing and dissecting the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the Event industry.

Now more than ever, the event industry is in need of a helping hand and the Summit, together with the generous support of its amazing partners, are there to lend a hand during this unprecedented time.

The Event Summit will comply with social distancing requirements as per the time of the event.
