International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has demonstrated the backing of event industry associations with the announcement of a raft of major bookings for 2017.
The Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) is to host its National Conference (30 April – 2 May 2017) at the ICC Sydney, while other events set to take place at the new integrated convention precinct in 2017 include: the Associations Forum’s National Conference (17-18 July) and the Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE) Conference (11-12 May).
Following its annual conference in France, the International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC) announced ICC Sydney as the destination for its July 2017 conference.
CEO of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy, said he was delighted with the local and international response to the precinct development.
“Interest in ICC Sydney is booming, with over 100 major conventions and exhibitions confirmed. We are building a strong case for the venue as a world leader and clients are responding to our integrated offering.
“Association events are critical to the mix of a global city as they drive business relationships, knowledge transfer, and industry investment. Their active support means ICC Sydney, and the business events we host, will play a fundamental role in supporting professional development and fostering the local knowledge economy – both of which are key to ensuring Sydney remains competitive and attracts top talent,” he said.
