Event Programming & Facilitation

Planning Events in Albury

Albury's reputation as a quality event host and venue provider extends from major regional, state and national sporting, music and cultural events, to boutique and community activities. Event hosts and organisers across the board rate AlburyCity's event support services as second to none.

Located on the New South Wales and Victorian border, Albury is well situated for access from all areas of New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and everywhere in between.  The city is the first choice for many national regional conferences for this very reason.

It's a breeze to get around - Albury's compact CBD has everything a successful event needs within a few minutes walk, from riverside parks, theaters and museums to accommodation and a buzzing retail, entertainment and cafe precinct - all located within 5km from Albury Airport.
