International Convention Centre Sydney’s (ICC Sydney), managed by ASM Global, has been recognised in the 2023 NSW Sommelier’s Wine List Awards for its outstanding selection of premium local wines as curated by the venue’s Food and Beverage Manager and Sommelier, William Wilson.
Presented by Mr Clayton Barr MP last night, the accolade recognised ICC Sydney’s continued commitment to showcase NSW wines and their support and knowledge of the local wine industry.
Having previously been named as the winning Sydney venue with over 40 seats, as well as the NSW Wine President’s Award for Outstanding Support of the NSW Wine Industry for William Wilson in 2022, the venue was this year selected as the winner in the latest category to have been created by NSW Wine Industry Association for best wine list by a Caterer or Function Centre.
Alongside ICC Sydney CEO and Group Director – Convention Centres, ASM Global (APAC) Geoff Donaghy and ICC Sydney Director of Culinary Services, Lynell Peck, William Wilson has been instrumental in establishing the venue’s 100% NSW wine list. His industry connections and knowledge of local wines have played a key role in the venue’s contribution to local food and beverage suppliers, which in 2018/19 resulted in A$12.2 million in direct expenditure for NSW food and beverage suppliers with ICC Sydney actively building the venue’s support of local providers since.
