Within the walls of ICC Sydney, Australia’s largest ballroom and 35,000sqm of internal exhibition space can be found amongst 70 world class event spaces. The 740 capacity Cockle Bay Room, 1000 capacity Pyrmont Theatre, and 2500 capacity Darling Harbour Theatre can each host three fully separated self-sufficient conventions concurrently, featuring their own break out and catering areas without any disturbance to other events. Mostly booked for events linked to exhibitions but used for a variety of meetings, 20 of those meeting spaces are located on mezzanine levels three and five at the adjacent ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre.
ICC Sydney’s 2880sqm Grand Ballroom is equipped with seven high-definition projectors, ensuring every seat in the room can have a great view, and nine-metre high ceilings. It can host gala dinners for up to 2000 guests, or a cocktail function for almost 3000 people, and features pre-function areas with stunning views of Darling Harbour and the Sydney skyline.
When it comes to planning and delivering events, the venue’s professional in-house teams are on hand to provide support
for clients across the integrated venue, ensuring a successful event experience from the first engagement.
ICC Sydney sits at the centre of the city’s thriving business and entertainment precinct, Darling Harbour, which already attracts approximately 25 million visitors a year and is within walking distance of a variety of dining options, hotels, and tourist attractions.
Nestled in this newly rejuvenated centre of Sydney, Darling Harbour boasts both beauty and brains. When visiting ICC Sydney, delegates are on the doorstep of the city’s business, research, scientific, and technology communities, giving them the opportunity to engage with range of creative talent, from the local start-up sector to the region’s universities and established industries.
ICC Sydney enhances clients’ performance and outcomes through the facilities available at the venue. The venue’s industry-leading technology, such as robust wireless connectivity that allows delegates to use the venue’s free wi-fi via almost 1000 access points, sophisticated loading dock management systems, and high-definition digital signage, make both the event planner and delegate experience seamless.
ICC Sydney’s Feeding Your Performance philosophy fuels both the body and mind of delegates by sourcing local produce to create nutritious dishes. This focus of combining fresh and local ingredients in healthy meals highlights the importance of nutrition to aid delegate concentration, stamina and performance, and the positive socio-economic impact business events can have on local supply chains.
