For the third consecutive year, International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), managed by ASM Global, has successfully nominated a senior team member to participate in the International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC) Future Shapers leadership program. Gabriella Alberici, ICC Sydney’s Senior Manager, Business Development – Corporate, Government and Events has been selected to represent the venue.
ICC Sydney CEO and Group Director – Convention Centres, ASM Global (APAC), Geoff Donaghy said that he was proud to have another team member among the nine global candidates enrolled into AIPC’s intense leadership program that has previously fostered industry innovation while nurturing candidates’ growth and development.
“In the world of convention centre management, having one of our most respected, high performing senior business development team members invited to undertake the course will help our international community address the challenges and leverage the opportunities most relevant to our industry, and ultimately better support our venue’s clients to deliver extraordinary events.
“After two consecutive years of participation in the AIPC Future Shapers program where four senior leaders in our organisation developed solutions for our industry through the AIPC Future Shapers program, we have no doubt Gabriella’s passion and experience will drive further industry innovations. Having joined ICC Sydney in our pre-opening, Gabriella’s wealth of knowledge will be invaluable to the latest Future Shapers cohort,” Mr Donaghy said. The AIPC Future Shapers program is led by AIPC CEO, Sven Bossu and several international convention centre leaders including founding taskforce member, ICC Sydney Director of Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability, Samantha Glass.
“The AIPC Future Shapers program was developed to supercharge the skills and contribution of our industry’s high performing talent and provide them with the opportunity to step out of their day-to-day operations, to address the challenges our industry faces.
