The show takes place every year at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre and can attract crowds of up to 75,000 people.

People using Sydney hotels; can look forward to a number of special attractions at this summer’s event, including an apperance from Australia’s teenage sailing star Jessica Watson.

Watson will appear in the Better Boating Lounge and her speech is likely to be one of the most popular events at the show.
