WSBC is delighted to welcome back the Premier of New South Wales, The Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP, who will deliver her second State of the Region Address on September 13 at the recently opened 5-star William Inglis Hotel, Warwick Farm.

It is often said that elections are won and lost in Western Sydney. In the run up to the 2019 state election, the Premier will share her Government’s plans to foster economic prosperity within the region.

What policies will the Berejiklian Government set in place to attract further investment and maximise the economic potential of Western Sydney’s big ticket items such as health, education, transport and the aerotropolis?

WSBC’s annual State of the Region address is Western Sydney’s key business leader luncheon. With 550 attendees at last year’s sold out event, the 2018 State of the Region Address is set to provide a great opportunity for you to engage with influential business leaders, generate leads and promote your business profile amongst the decision makers of Western Sydney.
