The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre may be closing in December to allow for the creation of the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct, but this hasn’t stopped this vital and much utilised facility from celebrating their 25th anniversary with a special logo.
The logo’s tag line “25 Remarkable Years”, is interpreted in the colours of the existing Centre symbol to present a vibrant reminder of the venue’s leadership and achievements since 1988.
Opened by Queen Elizabeth 11 on May 4, 1988 as part of Australia’s Bicentenary celebrations, the Centre’s chief executive Ton van Amerongen said the logo would celebrate a milestone, not just for the Centre but for the entire Australian business events industry.
“The opening of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre put Australia on the world meetings stage and paved the way for the development of the nation’s events industry,” van Amerongen.
“Over the past 25 years, the Centre has made an outstanding economic contribution to the community, both directly through the events we have hosted and indirectly via the industries that have flourished as a result of the events that have been held here.
“Our anniversary is cause for celebration for many different industries as well as the national event sector.”
The new logo, he continued, would be used in a range of internal and external communications.
“It truly has been 25 remarkable years.
“We have a lot to celebrate and it’s particularly fitting that this landmark year is also one of our busiest years on record,” van Amerongen said.
