The countdown has commenced
Meeting with buyers from around the world at Dreamtime, Tourism Australia’s largest national trade marketing event, International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) announced its official countdown to opening had begun.
ICC Sydney reconfirmed with buyers from key markets including Greater China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, New Zealand, USA and the United Kingdom that it would officially unveil its world class business and entertainment events precinct in Darling Harbour in December 2016.
ICC Sydney’s contemporary design celebrates Sydney’s temperate weather and natural environment with sweeping views of the harbour and city skyline through glass facades and from balconies throughout the venue.
Its smart design in the heart of Sydney provides 70 event spaces and allows for three conventions to run consecutively, each with their own plenary, break out space and catering areas. Australia’s largest ballroom sits proudly above the convention centre. It will seat up to 2,000 guests and its balcony provides spectacular harbour views.
As the physical venue looks more and more like its architectural renders each day, the operational preparations of venue manager AEG Ogden are also on track.
ICC Sydney Chief Executive Officer and AEG Ogden Group Convention Centres Director, Geoff Donaghy said the team was in the final planning stages of the test events that will commission every centimetre of the building.
“As the ICC Sydney team continues to build, the operations team is implementing plans to launch world leading technology as well as exceptional culinary and professional business services that will deliver the ultimate in business event experiences,” he said.
