Venue

International Convention Centre, Sydney

Opened in December 2016, ICC Sydney is Australia’s first fully-integrated convention, events, exhibition and entertainment centre. Featuring a striking contemporary design, leading technology and world-class meeting and exhibition spaces; ICC Sydney has been specifically designed to respond to future demands of the industry with the capability and flexibility to meet a comprehensive range of event requirements.

ICC Exhibition Centre
ICC Sydney Convention Centre

ICC Sydney is at the heart of its very own Sydney harbour waterfront precinct, set amongst restaurants, retail and a vibrant public domain on Darling Harbour yet only a moment’s walk to Australia’s largest Central Business District (CBD), Barangaroo, local universities, Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Sydney Opera House.

The venue is an easy walking distance from a range of accommodation options which will be available to delegates to book at the time of registering for the Conference.
