ICC Sydney’s commitment to innovation recognised at AIPC Congress

07 Jul 2022

International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has taken home two prestigious accolades this week at the International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC) Congress held in Budapest, Hungary.

The AIPC Innovation Overall Award recognised ICC Sydney’s new one stop destination for digital event solutions – Connect Hub. Meanwhile, the AIPC Future Shapers ‘EventShaper’ team, including ICC Sydney’s senior team members, Mathew Haynes, Senior Manager, Live Events, who developed the original solution concept, together with Sandra Rae, Senior Manager, Public Relations, among other representatives from convention centres across the globe, was recognised for presenting a top new client portal platform — addressing a common industry challenge.

ICC Sydney’s Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Donaghy, praised the venue team’s commitment to driving innovative solutions and sharing them via AIPC’s global platform.

“Our people’s commitment to innovation, investment in upskilling and training, while consistently anticipating and prioritising our clients’ event needs has ensured ICC Sydney remains at the fore of audio visual technical delivery whether events are held in person, virtually or a hybrid of the two.

“We are immensely proud to have a culture that encourages our team of professionals to implement highly impactful innovations, such as Connect Hub, that underpin the success we deliver for our clients every day. Our congratulations also goes to VIPARIS who was selected as the People’s Choice Innovation Award.
