Penrith to host 2025 LGNSW conference

The City of Penrith has been announced as the host city for the 2025 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. 

LGNSW President, Broken Hill Councillor Darriea Turley congratulated the City of Penrith on its high-quality bid to host the 2025 Conference which will run from Sunday 23 November until Tuesday 25 November.

“I am delighted that next year’s Conference will be held in the City of Penrith at the Panthers Penrith Event Centre. They proposed an outstanding bid that couldn’t be overlooked,” President Turley said.

“It is an ideal location for the Annual Conference, and I am certain that Panthers Penrith will not disappoint as a venue, especially with an impressive ability to host up to 1,500 delegates.”

Penrith Mayor, Todd Carney said he was delighted the City would be hosting the 2025 event and was excited to have the chance to highlight what the local government area has to offer.  

“We are honoured to host the 2025 LGNSW Annual Conference in Penrith, the best community in the West,” Mayor Carney said.  

“Penrith is growing at an exponential rate, with the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport rail line and a huge array of projects that focus on creating a greener, more liveable city. 

“It’s an exciting time for our community. We are proud of our excellent sporting and recreation facilities which see champion individuals and teams call Penrith home, our green open spaces, vibrant local events, and the many local opportunities for families to learn, work, grow and exercise within our city. 

“We welcome the opportunity to show off our wonderful city to conference delegates in 2025.” 

President Turley said the 2025 Conference will 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.”

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