International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) and Australia’s flagship construction event Sydney Build Expo showcased just how well growth is fostered and supported with Sydney Build Expo 2024. The super-sized construction industry event, held in May 2024, featured more than 50,000 registered attendees engaged with 600+ exhibitors across six exhibition halls.

ICC Sydney met the unique requirements of this important event, supporting its growth in both exhibitor numbers and attendees with flexibility, exceptional service and support. This pivotal industry event continues to grow and is expected to exclusively utilise ICC Sydney’s seven exhibition halls in 2025.

“Sydney Build Expo plays a critical role in bringing together construction professionals of diverse disciplines all under one roof. As the premier construction industry event driving productivity, we engage partners that align with our values, are committed to maximising the impact of our event and take pride in servicing our rapidly expanding audiences. Our success was due in large part to the exceptional service we received from our venue partner ICC Sydney, and we look forward to continuing to innovate our event alongside them.”

James McKenzie, Managing Director APAC, Sydney Build Expo

Supporting Wider Growth

As a key focus for the Australian Federal Government’s renewed focus on advancing manufacturing, construction and clean energy projects through the ‘Future Made in Australia Act’ major events like the Sydney Build Expo assist in elevating these industries, encouraging investment and creating nationwide economic impact.

Expansion at ICC Sydney

With both increased attendance and a larger event footprint, Sydney Build has enjoyed year-on-year growth in exhibitor, speaker and attendee numbers as well as its physical footprint. Utilising six exhibition halls in 2024, the 2025 expo is expected to require exclusive use of ICC Sydney’s Exhibition Centre.

Aligning Values

Bringing together some of the most influential construction and building experts, this event is designed to also create a vibrant community of professionals who are passionate about industry issues.Organisers created a program addressing key areas surrounding sustainability, diversity, mental health and women in construction. They required a venue that aligned with their values and community vision.

With sustainability at the core of ICC Sydney’s business practices and an event Legacy Program that fosters diversity, inclusion and the local community, organisers found ICC Sydney’s ethos an ideal match. The venue team assisted Sydney Build with diverting 71% of waste from landfill, further supporting their collective sustainability initiatives.
