Phil King has landed one of the best gigs in the city following his appointment by International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) to the role of Director of Live Entertainment – a position that will help shape the future of show business in Sydney.
With more than 14 years’ experience across venues such as Allphones Arena and Suncorp Stadium, King will be responsible for managing the live entertainment operations within the integrated ICC Sydney precinct, which comprises three theatres, a 5,000sqm open air event deck and 2,400sqm of multipurpose event space.
King said he is excited to be working with leading promoters and artists to deliver a year-round calendar of vibrant events for Sydney, including international and local music acts, theatrical performances and comedy shows.
“Entertainment at ICC Sydney will set a new standard for performers and deliver a world class experience for visitors. The venues are equipped with state of the art equipment, superior staging and technical facilities. Stellar sound and visuals will be brought to life through high definition screens, large scale projection and the highest quality audio equipment.
“When ICC Sydney opens in December, it will represent a new era in the live entertainment scene in our city. That is something very special, and I can’t wait to share the experience with locals and visitors alike,” said Mr King.
