Sydney Writers’ Festival 2017

Sydney Writers’ Festival returns to Walsh Bay from May 22-28 and as always there is much to do, see and get amongst in the precinct. Below is a taster of just a few local highlights.

Marking the Festival’s opening night (May 22) guests will be treated to a special event hosted by literary giants; Brit Bennet, Anne Enright and George Saunders - each delivering an address on the Festival’s theme of ‘refuge’ at the Roslyn Packer Theatre. If escapism is high on the list why not try to catch a performance (May 22 and 23rd) of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography at Wharf 2? Or for a more casual vibe, on May 25, join the Sydney Morning Herald editors and journalists, along with special guest Norman Ohler, at the Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf to hear what’s making headlines and learn about what stories to follow.

GTR: Australia Trade Forum

Returning to Sydney for its fourth year, Global Trade Review’s (GTR) key annual gathering has evolved into the Australia Trade Forum for 2017 and will take place at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth on Monday 29 May.

A corporate-focused occasion bringing together all sectors involved in international trade, the event will report on developments in global markets and their impact on Australian trade, and explore what the future may hold for Australia’s corporates and exporters. With organisers touting this year’s conference as an “ideal opportunity to establish new relationships with those currently doing business in the country, bypassing the need to set up countless meetings over several days, saving time and money.”
