Vivid Sydney is a bright star on Sydney’s events calendar supporting the entire ecosystem of the state’s visitor economy during winter, from our creative industries to live entertainment and hospitality venues, accommodation providers and retailers.
Our aim is to be the premier events destination of the Asia Pacific and this internationally renowned, and celebrated, event is vital in realising this vision.Ben Franklin, New South Wales Minister For Tourism & The Arts
Vivid Sydney was also nominated for ‘Best Cultural, Arts or Music Event (National)’ (but lost to BASS IN THE GRASS Music Festival) and ‘Australian Event Of The Year’ (but lost to AIME).
The Technical Direction Company & Destination New South Wales were both nominated but separately entered for ‘Best Achievement In Marketing Or Communication’ for their work on Vivid Sydney but lost out to the Northern Territory MAJOR EVENTS Company for their work on Parrtjima – A Festival in Light.
