Lyn Lewis-Smith Announced as Chief Executive Officer

Business Events Sydney’s (BESydney) Chairman, Col Hughes, has announced that Lyn Lewis-Smith has been officially appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the convention bureau.

Lewis-Smith achieved strong results during her time as Chief Operating Officer, and most recently as Acting Chief Executive Officer.

“Lyn has extensive experience both in the business events and tourism industry. She is absolutely the right leader for the BESydney team and her appointment is both well-deserved and a key driver for BESydney’s ongoing success,” said Hughes.

Lewis-Smith said: “It’s an extremely exciting time in Sydney and with many redevelopments and revitalisation projects underway, the city is undoubtedly changing. I am extremely confident in my team’s ability to manage the opportunities presented by developments such as Barangaroo, the Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct, The Star and Royal Randwick (to name a few), and to maximise the benefits for Sydney’s business event offering. BESydney has the expertise, connections and leadership to continue delivering great results for the harbour city.”
