At ICC Sydney, we have taken remarkable strides to make a lasting impact on both our local community and the industries we serve through the business events we host every day. Our commitment to innovation, meaningful partnerships, and creating extraordinary experiences lies at the heart of our progress and endeavours, and we are proud to highlight a few key initiatives that support event organisers to amplify positive social impact through events.
For the seventh consecutive year, ICC Sydney welcomed over 6,000 high school students, teachers, and volunteers to the Stand Tall event – a powerful initiative that aims to build hope into the lives of Australia’s young people. Together, we united to champion youth mental health, fostering an environment where inspirational speakers sparked open conversations by sharing their own stories, highlighting the benefits of resilience in the face of life’s challenges. I invite you to read the full event case study to explore the impact of this remarkable event.
Our dedication to connecting you with the local First Nations, next generation, creative and startup communities are important streams in our industry leading Legacy Program. Through this program, we strive to enrich events while we cultivate opportunities for Aboriginal people, professionals and emerging artists and entrepreneurs by providing them with invaluable opportunities and experiences through the events we host.
In a true demonstration of our commitment to community support, ICC Sydney’s record-breaking number of 20 runners raised over A$6,000 for our Legacy Program partner KARI Foundation, during this year’s City2Surf event – the world’s largest fun run held in Sydney. Beyond being a dynamic opportunity for our team to volunteer their time, energy and enjoy Sydney’s picturesque views, the funds will directly contribute to KARI’s programs and services for First Nations families, children and communities, and reflect our dedication to giving back in a meaningful and sustainable manner.
