Vivid Sydney has been recognised as a world leading event, taking out one of the top honours at the 2015 Pacific Asia Travel Association Grand and Gold Awards.

 Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said Vivid Sydney won the Gold Award in the Marketing – State Government Destination category, recognising State or city tourism organisations.

“This is great news for NSW and this win highlights how important the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas is for our great State,” Mr Ayres said.

“The win reinforces the professionalism of Destination NSW’s marketing promotional activities and the success of how they work with partners to develop travel packages and other activities to increase awareness of and visitation to Vivid Sydney.

“The popularity of Vivid Sydney continues to increase with 1.7 million people visiting the festival this year on the back of this campaign. This included the sale of over 26,000 international Vivid Sydney travel packages with more than 11,000 packages sold to China.”   Source: Destination NSW

Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers are very active during the Vivid Festival as at this time of year there are many more tourists in the city looking to do trips.  The festival is remarkable and often we discuss the attraction on tours such as our Home and Away tour to Palm Beach, Summer Bay.
