IT leaders will converge upon ICC Sydney over five days in 2017 for cloud computing’s single largest gathering, OpenStack Summit. It will be the first international ICT event to be held at ICC Sydney following a successful collaborative bid win with Business Events Sydney (BESydney).

ICC Sydney’s CEO, Geoff Donaghy, said “OpenStack will allow us to showcase our state-of-the-art technology within our venue, cementing ICC Sydney as the future global Information and Communication Technology hub. Our team look forward to opening our doors to 5,000 delegates from more than 50 countries including IT leaders and developers, Telco operators and users, app developers and administrators of OpenStack Cloud Software”.

NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Stuart Ayres, said “OpenStack has found a great partner in Sydney, we have a global reputation for supporting innovation, the biggest start-up ecosystem in Australia and a strong open source community”.
