International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has become the first venue of its kind in Australia to pilot a mobile airline check-in and baggage drop service, offering conference delegates from around the world the ultimate in flexibility and convenience.
Delivered in partnership with Off Airport Check In Solutions (OACIS), the trial took place at the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) conference – the largest pension fund event in the world, which saw nearly 2,000 delegates descend on ICC Sydney last week.
The service enabled international and interstate visitors to check-in and drop off their luggage at an OACIS counter within ICC Sydney on the final day of the conference, travelling to Sydney Airport luggage-free, and conveniently collecting it at their final destination.
Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, said the successful pilot marks another moment of innovation for the venue as it continues to deliver a world class experience for business travellers.
“Since opening in December 2016, ICC Sydney has already received numerous accolades for its unique offering, and we are excited to be leading the charge here in terms of optimising the visitor experience.
“Our pilot with OACIS was a success on all fronts and with more than 1,000 events secured until 2026, it could be a game changer for our clients, delegates and visitors,” he said
