This month, we announced an exciting initiative that we have implemented at ICC Sydney to enhance your event experience and ensure accessibility and inclusivity for all attendees. Our newest resource, the Accessible and Inclusive Events Guide is a comprehensive resource that outlines our best practice advice on creating experiences that cater to individuals of all abilities. We believe that every attendee should have equal access to the events we host, and this guide serves as an invaluable tool in helping you to achieve that goal.
From an inventory of physical accessibility features at the venue, to advice on creating a welcoming experience for people of all abilities, the guide delivers on ICC Sydney’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy and exemplifies our broader mission to provide accessible, equitable and inclusive events, delivered by our diverse and experienced workforce.
Critically, the new guide for event organisers complements the information and services provided to venue delegates and patrons via an accessible format on ICC Sydney’s website. Our aspiration to create the most accessible and inclusive environment for events means that every visitor feels welcome and can participate — and our new Accessible and Inclusive Events Guide, corporate culture and state of the art amenities support event organisers to deliver this. You can access the guide here and read our Director of Corporate Affairs, Communication, and Sustainability, Samantha Glass’ insights on how our venue strategy cultivates an accessible, equitable and inclusive future here.
Exemplifying our commitment to sustainability and inclusivity was our recent delivery of Ozwater’23, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest water conference and exhibition. Through the activation of ICC Sydney’s Legacy Program, we successfully supported the Australian Water Association to deliver their program that celebrated First Nations culture and included sustainability and volunteering initiatives and created an event experience that left a lasting positive impact.
