He said the percentage increase in meetings-related business across its properties in Western Sydney grew 19 per cent in 2010 compared to 2009, and double-digit growth was anticipated in 2011. “No major new supply (hotels) is expected in Western Sydney at least in the short-term, but there has been a continuation in the relocation of businesses to Western Sydney, so we anticipate growth in both occupancy and rate during 2011.
