ICC Sydney: More Than a Venue

Bursting onto the meetings and events scene just three years ago, International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has exceeded all expectations, welcoming more than 1.4 million delegates during the 2018/19 financial year, and generating almost £500m economic impact for the State in 2019. It has a further 1520 major events secured to 2030.

But for ICC Sydney, staging events is about more than the numbers. A champion of change and community, their pledge is to provide ‘More than a Venue’, delivering a world class Sydney experience for you and your delegates. And here’s five reasons why you should host your next event with them…


1. Inspiring spaces
ICC Sydney comprises a Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre and Theatre – all state-of-the-art structures designed to house everything from rock concerts to global summits. The Convention Centre is the business end of the venue. This is where you’ll find the world’s best minds exploring bold, new ideas. With sweeping views of the city, 2400sqm of multipurpose event space, Australia’s largest ballroom accommodating 2,000 for a banquet, plus world class technology and support services – this is a venue built to host the most ambitious of conferences. They have already hosted over 70 major international events including Sibos, the world’s largest financial services conference.

2. Culinary excellence
ICC Sydney knows that food is one of the most important aspects of any event. Guided by their culinary philosophy, Feeding Your Performance, ICC Sydney’s in-house food and beverage team prepares cuisine that allows your delegates to get the most out of themselves, and your events. Chefs create sumptuous dishes to suit all tastes and requirements that showcase the very best of New South Wales produce. They are connected with more than 130 farmers and producers plus a raft of talented winemakers to source some of Australia’s finest meats, fruit and vegetables, dairy products and wine, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to quality.

3. Lasting legacy
An Australian first, the ICC Sydney Legacy Program was designed to help clients create a lasting impact – contributing to the intellectual and cultural capital of Sydney, long after the conclusion of an event, all while providing delegates with enriching experiences. The dedicated CSR team works with clients to identify how they can advance the social and sustainability goals of their event, forge a new partnership with a local organisation, or simply give back to the community via five streams – First Australians, Creative Industries, Innovators and Entrepreneurs, Generation Next and Sustainable Events.

4. Creative connections
Australia is home to an abundance of talented performers, artists and designers and offers an array of world-renowned galleries and museums. ICC Sydney is able to provide creative connections for clients, from featuring emerging or established performers at an event to facilitating bespoke cultural tours and assisting in organising gifts for delegates from authentic Australian designers. The city is also home to a vibrant start-up and student community and ICC Sydney can introduce you to the best innovators and entrepreneurs, or provide students with access to your event, facilitate networking with them, and even track their engagement.


5. Satisfaction guaranteed
Delivering success for clients is embedded in ICC Sydney’s DNA and the team will work closely with you to guarantee your event delivers on your objectives. A recent delegate satisfaction survey revealed an extraordinary 99% rating, while client satisfaction rating increased from 97% to a near-perfect 99% in 2018/19. Over the past year, they achieved 16 awards and accolades, which combine to a total of 47 since opening. These include Australia’s Best Conference Venue for the second year in the QANTAS Business Travel Awards, Sydney Metropolitan Caterer of the Year and Events Association Australasia - Best Venue Team.
