Tourism & Event Management at TAFE NSW

The tourism industry in Australia is travelling well - so new, talented employees have a great journey ahead of them. Careers in tourism have always been popular as they provide the opportunity to join an industry that is an important part of Australia's economy.

Festivals and cultural events are also a major part of Australian life, with at least one happening every day somewhere in the country and attendance rates of more than 10 million people every year. They range in size from small community celebrations to major cultural events, and embrace music, theatre, performance, art, food and wine, heritage, multicultural and indigenous events.

Back in the conference room, business events and conferences is a healthy multi-billion dollar industry in Australia, and one that is expected to more than double in size in the next decade.

At Northern Sydney Institute we pride ourselves on offering professional qualifications with the maximum possible hands-on, real world experience giving you direct pathways to university or successful industry employment.

A look at the facts...



  • Travel and tourism continues to be one of the world’s largest industries. By 2022, the Australian travel and tourism industry is forecast to support 1,443,000 jobs (11.7% of total employment).

  • Tourism industry revenue is estimated to total over $114 billion in 2014.

  • A stronger business confidence outlook over the next five years is expected to translate into higher spending on corporate events and sponsorship, resulting in strong growth in employment for conference and event organisers.

  • It is expected that there will be a shift towards higher level qualifications in both industries.

Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award





Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.

“I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said.

ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host.

“The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.”

The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure.

The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
