Parramatta to host 2023 LGNSW conference

The City of Parramatta has been named as the host city for the 2023 Local Government NSW Annual Conference.

The Annual Conference is the local government sector’s flagship event that brings hundreds of councillors, general managers and council staff from across NSW together to set the advocacy agenda for the coming year.

The 2023 Annual Conference will take place at Rosehill Gardens from Sunday 12 to Tuesday 14 November 2023.

Making the announcement on the final day of this year’s annual conference today, LGNSW President, Darriea Turley, congratulated the City of Parramatta Council on its high-quality bid to host the 2023 Conference.

“For a hosting city, the LGNSW Annual Conference is a magnificent chance to highlight everything the area has to offer,” President Turley said.

“I am delighted that next year’s Conference will be held in the City of Paramatta. They proposed an outstanding bid that couldn’t be overlooked.

“It is an ideal location for the Annual Conference, and I am certain that Rosehill Gardens will not disappoint as a venue, especially with an impressive ability to host up to 1,000 delegates.”

City of Parramatta Lord Mayor, Donna Davis said she was thrilled the ever-growing city would be hosting next year’s event and looked forward to showcasing the area.

“We are proud to host next year’s LGNSW Annual Conference in Paramatta, the geographical centre and heart of global Sydney,” Lord Mayor Davis said.

“Parramatta is one of Australia’s fastest-growing local government areas and a thriving hub of great food, arts, recognised heritage sites and award-winning, green open spaces. Our vibrant, diverse community is a fascinating mosaic of diverse cultures from around the world.

“We are a premier destination for experiences from culture to sport and major events. Our city is excited about the opportunity to showcase the best of our wonderful region to conference participants in 2023.”

President Turley said the 2023 Conference would be more important than ever with local government facing another extremely challenging period.

“The Conference is always an excellent opportunity to share ideas, seek inspiration and debate and resolve council-submitted motions that shape the sector’s policy direction for the following year,” she said.

“The tradeshow and educational workshops also help support delegates in their efforts to effectively represent their communities.

“I look forward to continuing to work with councils in the coming year on our advocacy priorities and coming together again in November 2023.”
