Penrith Panthers, CEO, Brian Fletcher said, “The thriving business community of Western Sydney has long been in need of a modern, multi-purpose conference centre and Panthers is proud to be delivering exactly that.”
The WSCCC has been made possible thanks to combined Federal and State Government grants of $24m. Member for Penrith the Hon. Stuart Ayres, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney said the development was part of Panthers ongoing commitment to providing world-class facilities for the people of Penrith and the greater community.
“Panthers are a cornerstone of the Western Sydney community, and this new development will be a game-changer for western Sydney community groups and the people of Penrith.
“Many outstanding community programs and initiatives in the Penrith region will benefit from the community centre. While the conference centre will enhance Penrith’s reputation as a world-class event and tourism destination.
The Member for Lindsay, Melissa McIntosh, welcomed the start of main construction and the significant boost it gives the local economy.
“This new centre will make Penrith the place to bring trade shows, conferences and conventions in Western Sydney, bringing with them plenty of jobs too.”
300 jobs will be created during construction with a further 100 ongoing roles upon completion of the project, which reaffirms Panthers as an employer of choice in the local community,” said Mrs McIntosh.
An estimated completion date of late 2021 has been set, with Panthers accepting bookings in early 2020.
