It features a striking contemporary design, state-of-the-art technology throughout and leading event services to cater to the changing architecture of meetings and events, all situated in the heart of Sydney.

Design: A Pioneering Venue
ICC Sydney sits at the epicentre of the A$3.4 billion, 20-hectare transformation of the waterfront Darling Harbour precinct in Sydney’s bustling CBD. It brings a new dynamic quality and reputation to the city whileproviding visitors and delegates the ultimate in quality, choice and flexibility for collaboration and innovation.
A fit-for-purpose facility with a unique and innovative design, the venue boasts spectacular views of the city skyline and a range of integrated facilities that help inspire the imagination and boost professional development. Guests can experience an industry-leading convention centre, 35,000sqm of exhibition space, sweeping views from a 5,000sqm open-air event deck, a spectacular 2,000 capacity grand ballroom – the largest of its kind in Australia – and world class theatres, meeting rooms and event spaces.
Following the 10th World Chamber of Congress held at ICC Sydney in 2017, Director of the International Chamber of Commerce World Chambers Federation, Anthony Parkes, was impressed by the modernity and efficiency of the building. “For me, the technology of ICC Sydney and the layout were two key elements that facilitated the dynamics of an innovative, modern-day event,” he said.
