International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has opened its doors in the heart of the Sydney harbor waterfront precinct. Three years in the making, the $1.09 billion project is part of a major revitalization of Darling Harbour.
“ICC Sydney is an important component of the state’s suite of infrastructure projects and will contribute at least $5 billion to the local economy in the next 25 years,” said Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney. “We open with more than 500 secured bookings and by our third year of operation, we expect to be running 1,000 events annually, enriching Sydney’s financial and knowledge economies.”
ICC Sydney features more than 375,000 square feet of exhibition space and more than 85,000 square feet of meeting space that includes 70 meeting rooms. The venue is home to Australia’s largest ballroom, which offers water and city views as well as banquet seating for up to 2,000 people and reception space for more than 3,500. Other event spaces include an open-air event deck with a lounge and bar and a theater that can accommodate groups of up to 8,000 people.
