Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment venue further future proofs in person events through best-in-class equipment

International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has expanded and upgraded its technology inventory with a A$1.53 million investment in new industry-leading audio visual (AV) equipment, bolstering its world class in person event delivery capabilities.

Backed by its award winning team of AV experts, the investment enhances ICC Sydney’s comprehensive, high tech event delivery solutions to meet the returned demand for in person events with state-of-the-art equipment including 32K lumens laser projectors, vision processing and control, projection screens, laptops, foldback monitors, cameras, audio and lighting consoles, radio microphones, moving light fixtures and draping. The investment builds on the venue’s recently expanded range of 2.9 millimetre pitch modular and customisable LED screens.

ICC Sydney’s CEO, Geoff Donaghy said the venue team was committed to elevating the event experience by implementing innovative solutions.

“ICC Sydney was purpose-built to cater for the changing architecture of meetings and through this investment it has evolved its event delivery capability to execute even better world class services for our diverse network of clients and visitors. Our team members take great pride in presenting customised, seamless technical solutions and the latest venue enhancements will support this ongoing quest for excellence,” Mr Donaghy said.

ICC Sydney’s Director of Audio Visual Services, Brian Nash said the team’s expertise coupled with the additional equipment ensures the venue remains at the forefront of the industry, continually setting new benchmarks for delivering events.

“Innovation is built into our DNA. With this significant advancement of our already expansive equipment inventory, managed by our extraordinary team of passionate, experienced and agile people, ICC Sydney reaffirms its commitment to support clients’ success through the events we deliver for them every day.

“We thrive on creating flawless in person event experiences that inspire the imagination and we want to ensure every visitor is impressed every time they attend an event at ICC Sydney.

Nash said ICC Sydney will also continue driving successful outcomes by supporting the next generation of technical professionals with vocational training.

“People are at the heart of our successful event operations here at ICC Sydney. We continue to bring together the best technical directors, project managers and operators to work with an unmatched range of vision, lighting, audio, studio and draping infrastructure.

“Adding to the learning and development opportunities available to the team through ICC Sydney’s Academy of Extraordinary, we are proud to have recently collaborated with vocational education providers to on-board seven AV trainees as part of our inaugural Professional Growth Traineeship Program,” Mr Nash said.

Donaghy added that ICC Sydney’s continual enhancements to AV and technology products and services reaffirms the venue’s reputation on a global stage.

“As we welcome a resurgence of local, national and international events, we are proud to further strengthen Sydney’s position as one of the world’s most desirable business events destinations. Working with the latest technology and the best people in the industry, the future possibilities for business and entertainment events are endless,” he said.

The investment in new tech infrastructure builds on the success of the venue’s International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC) Innovation Award presented to ICC Sydney in recognition of its Connect Hub service.
