AT THE HEART
As Australia’s premier
convention, exhibition and
ICC Sydney represents a
pivotal connection point
between clients, delegates and
the local Sydney community.
ICC Sydney has built a reputation globally for
revitalising the way business events are
delivered. The team works hand-in-hand with
clients to ensure the events it hosts create a
lasting legacy, giving back to the
communities in which it operates and
placing people first.
Acknowledging and celebrating First
Through its First Australians Legacy Program
stream, the world class venue is promoting
First Nations businesses and simultaneously
offering authentic delegate experiences. This
is underpinned by a commitment to building
greater acknowledgement for the original
custodians of the land on which it stands,
the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.
Already, there are a number of ways event
organisers can engage First Nations
communities and businesses at ICC Sydney
– from inviting a Gadgil elder to perform a
Welcome to Country via the Metropolitan
Local Aboriginal Land Council, to organising
a cultural tour with Dreamtime Southern X
as part of delegate registration onsite.
In further recognition of the importance
of First Nations cultures and heritage, ICC
Sydney is preparing to launch its inaugural
Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) later this
year. The plan will see the introduction of a
number of new initiatives moving forward.
Aunty Margret Campbell, Director of
Dreamtime Southern X, Chairperson of the
NSW Aboriginal Tourism Operators Council
and member of the ICC Sydney RAP
Working Group, said that the venue’s
support of Australia’s First Nations people
will open up a myriad of opportunities.
“With more than a million people
welcomed through its doors every year, ICC
Sydney is in a unique position to facilitate
connections between international and
interstate visitors and local First Nations
businesses via employment and economic
development. This is helping to strengthen
and celebrate our diverse cultures in an
innovative and purposeful way.”
Supporting Sydney’s students and
ICC Sydney is an important contributor to
innovation in Sydney – actively strengthening
its local knowledge economy by providing a
platform to share ideas and information.
Through its network of partners and
Legacy Program, the venue is also fostering
the next generation of talent via student
and startup engagement, helping these
important groups reach their potential,
while enriching event programs.
In practical terms, clients have the
opportunity to engage students through
volunteering opportunities and participation in
conference workshops, networking and more.
ICC Sydney is also setting the industry
benchmark for entrepreneurial collaboration
by providing event organisers with direct
exposure to Sydney’s network of startups.
Clients may choose to invite entrepreneurs
or students to pitch and present their ideas
to delegates, giving them the opportunity to
support the commercialisation of local
business. Young bright minds can be
invited to networking sessions where they
can connect with those who have the
potential to bring their idea to life.
A gateway to regional communities
Taking its people-first approach beyond the
city borders, ICC Sydney is proudly driving
business growth and economic development
in regional communities through its Feeding
Your Performance (FYP) program and local
Beginning with the venue’s in-house
culinary team, ICC Sydney is
committed to providing
delegates with a world class culinary
experience that caters to all event
requirements. The culinary approach focuses
on sourcing highly nutritious, seasonal
ingredients which have been produced locally
and sustainably. The resulting menus served
at ICC Sydney showcase the best of
Sydney’s surrounding areas to an
international audience while providing
financial security for farmers and producers,
supporting improvements to infrastructure,
boosting production and creating
opportunities for new and speciality produce.
Heralded as a blueprint for innovation in
the sector, this approach has generated
A$4.3M in direct expenditure for a network
of more than 85 NSW farmers, with
investment in local producers generating
A$8.3 million in total benefits in ICC
Sydney’s first year of operation.
