As Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment venue, International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) sits at the heart of Sydney, one of the world’s most diverse global cities.

It boasts a prime waterfront location within a dynamic dining, leisure and business precinct, providing a truly unique stage for the world’s leaders and thinkers to meet, collaborate and innovate.
A City That Inspires
Since opening in December 2016, the venue has cemented Sydney’s reputation as one of the world’s most desirable meeting destinations on the doorstep of financial, creative, start up and education hubs.
To date, ICC Sydney has successfully hosted more than 1.6 million visitors at 1,000 events, bringing people together in an inspiring destination.

Looking ahead, ICC Sydney is counting down the months to welcome more than 7,000 business leaders through its doors in October as it hosts Sibos 2018, the world’s premier financial services event. Returning to Sydney after 12 years, the prestigious event will celebrate its 40th birthday with the world’s financial community coming together to debate, network and discuss how the digital economy, technology and the growing fintech community will shape the future of the financial industry.
Forging Meaningful Connections
Underpinning ICC Sydney’s success has been its commitment to forging new ways of delivering for its clients. This includes its industry-first Feeding Your Performance culinary philosophy which sees the ICC Sydney team source the best, peak-of-season produce from local farmers to fuel the bodies and minds of delegates.
It is also forging connections in other ways includingits unique multi-streamed Legacy Program. Now underway, it has been designed to connect clients with a diverse cross-section of the local community through four diverse streams – Innovators & Entrepreneurs, Generation Next, Aboriginal Australia and Sustainable Business.
Each stream provides clients with an opportunity to connect with locals through dedicated initiatives – from direct exposure to Sydney’s network of entrepreneurs and startups and fostering the next generation of thought leaders via student engagement, to working with local Aboriginal businesses, and measuring the ecological impact of events.
