International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) presented a deep dive into recent events with the launch of ‘Events in Focus – a conversational webinar series’, showcasing planning and delivery insights from three clients who hosted hybrid and virtual events at ICC Sydney.
The three episodes focussed on digital events through short, sharp 30 minute conversations with event organisers and our in house event delivery experts. The episodes covered hybrid events, the ICC Sydney Connect platform and the venue’s leading audio visual product suite which supports clients with an expansive range of technology requirements.
Episode 1: Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia
Pathology Update was transformed from a hybrid format to 100% virtual in a matter of days due to heightened COVID-19 restrictions. In the comprehensive webinar episode, it was revealed that the ICC Sydney Connect platform allowed more than 180 speakers, 1,200 medical professionals and 43 exhibitors to convene and advance their professional development and education discussing Australia’s healthcare system and response to managing the medical requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eve Propper, Events, Sponsorship and Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Foundation Manager at The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia and organiser of Pathology Update 2021 said, “Communication was central for me, as I needed to understand the new technology and how it was going to work on the day. It was critically important to have the right team behind me and working with ICC Sydney ensured a polished, accessible and high quality result for the members of the College.”
Episode 2: Informa Connect
The second episode showcased Informa Connect’s General Manager, Keith Barks and Conference Producer, Margaret Young, who shared their extensive experience from the 18 virtual and hybrid events at ICC Sydney in the last 12 months.
ICC Sydney’s Director of Audio Visual Services, Brian Nash said, “We kicked off the Informa session by introducing events delivered with a digital component. Through the webinar, our team talked with Keith and Margaret, not only about the methods and strategies that they found useful in planning the digital execution, but also the typical pitfalls to avoid.”
