ICC Sydney welcomes Covid restrictions easing in NSW

The International Convention Centre Sydney has welcomed further easing of Covid-19 restrictions in New South Wales.

The capacity limit at event venues is now one person per two square metres, with no upper limit – as is currently the case in Victoria.

The ICC Sydney has welcomed the news, and says it is “promptly reviewing the implications of the proposed public health order changes to its operational capacity and upcoming events schedule, including the number of attendees permitted in its Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre and Aware Super Theatre.”

ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy said: “The changes will move us much closer to freeing up the national market and bolster our ability to promote Sydney as a safe business events destination with confidence. We are awaiting the finer details of the public health order and will be documenting it with our clients to support their event execution.”

Donaghy continued, “We still have some way to go with the resurrection of international business which is vital to our full recovery. We remain focused on continuing to work with industry representative bodies to progress a long term recovery strategy for business events to ensure this remains on the agenda with decisions makers.”

ICC Sydney is currently open and running a range of in-person and hybrid events in line with the venue’s EventSafe Operating Guide which integrates parent group ASM Global’s Venue Shield program, while meeting NSW Government regulations.
