At ICC Sydney, we firmly believe events of all formats – whether they are congresses, exhibitions, banquets or meetings, are made ever more extraordinary when delivered in partnership with our diverse team of talented events professionals.
As your trusted event partner, we remain committed to providing an inclusive environment for all visitors to feel welcomed, respected and safe to collaborate when planning successful events. This commitment to diversity, equality, accessibility and inclusivity recently came to the fore as we worked with Sydney WorldPride to ensure the memorable delivery of Asia Pacific’s biggest LGBQTIA+ Human Rights Conference. We are also immensely proud that our approach to sustainability as activated through our pioneering Legacy Program supported Sydney WorldPride to achieve their corporate social responsibility goals at the event.
In addition to ICC Sydney’s built-in accessibility features and services, ICC Sydney implemented bespoke changes to the venue including for instance non-gendered bathroom signage, a wellbeing lounge, sensory room and therapy room, with additional creative spaces in The Gallery. ICC Sydney’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability included removing all single-use plastic water bottles from the event, replacing them with glass and PET bottles. A focus on providing mixed recycling and organic waste bins and signage helped to divert waste from landfill and reduce the event’s overall landfill footprint.
