AUSTRALIA - The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre recently hosted a thousand music industry delegates at the three-day Song Summit 2010 and Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) Music Awards.

Staged together for the first time, the two annual events saw the centre filled with song as acclaimed song writers and musicians from around the globe gathered to exchange ideas and information.

As a business development and networking expo for the music industry, Song Summit included presentations by songwriters such as Stephen Schwartz, responsible for the music of Godspell and Wicked, and Mike Chapman, whose many hits include Tina Turner’s Simply the Best, as well as speeches by the federal arts minister and APRA member Peter Garrett and state arts minister Virginia Judge.

APRA corporate events manager, Jana Gibson, praised the venue’s ability to “incorporate sustainable elements within our event”
