International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is driving economic development and delivering societal health and environmental benefits, according to a study from University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
Launched in December 2016, Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct has already established a network of more than 60 local farmers, directly and via co-op and boutique providores – just one part of its unique Feeding Your Performance philosophy.
Through a new research partnership with UTS, ICC Sydney will measure the economic and social impacts of its New South Wales-focused food and beverage supply chain over time, and deliver annual updates.
UTS Business School Associate Professor, Carmel Foley, said: “Through its creation of a local supply chain, ICC Sydney is fostering significant employment opportunities and business growth across New South Wales. Its unique partnerships see the precinct working with suppliers from planting to plate, providing assured income and financial security. ICC Sydney is committing to supporting regional communities and their economic development.”
