International Convention Sydney (ICC Sydney) has taken home the highly coveted Best Venue Team at the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia’s (EEAA) Awards for Excellence for the team’s delivery of the Australian Woodworking Industry Suppliers Association (AWISA) Exhibition in July this year.
Held at the venue last night, the awards recognise the exceptional work of organisers, association organisers, venues and suppliers in the exhibition and events industry.
Hosted at ICC Sydney for the very first time, the delivery of AWISA required building the equivalent of five woodworking factories, including highly sensitive, robotic, large-scale and potentially dangerous equipment, under one roof and within eight days. The complex event delivery involved a vast number of ICC Sydney team members from across a range of departments.
The 2018 event saw a 16% increase in attendance from 2016, with 34% of visitors returning for a second or third time.
CEO of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy said the highly successful execution of AWISA showcased the skills of the venue’s experienced, talented and solutions-focused team, all backed by a ‘can-do’ culture.
