International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is backing its commitment to unforgettable experiences for visitors, investing $250,000 into professional development for its operational workforce. Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct is partnering with TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute to deliver nationally recognised qualifications to staff and foster a new generation of business events and hospitality professionals.
The innovative approach to talent attraction and retention will shine a spotlight on part-time and casual workers, and facilitate firm career progression opportunities for both staff and selected TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute students, who will now be trained to ICC Sydney’s world class standards. Over the next 24 months, up to 2,000 ICC Sydney team members will receive training through this initiative.
Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, said the investment in training and partnership with TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute reflects ICC Sydney’s belief that its people are the venue’s number one asset.

“Our work with TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute will see tailored education programs developed for students across hospitality, commercial cookery, audio visual, business administration and security. The result will be a raft of talented individuals, trained to our world leading benchmarks in both capabilities and mindset. This will ensure they are primed for stellar careers with qualifications that are recognised nationally.”
