World class centre for business and entertainment
Opening in December 2016, ICC Sydney will be Asia Pacific's premier business events precinct.
The showcase venue presents Australia's largest and first fully-integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment centre, underpinning Sydney's place as one of the world's most desirable meeting and event destinations.
ICC Sydney will be a beacon of innovation, learning and entertainment, connecting and celebrating leaders of invention, business, governance and the arts.
Delivering 35,500 sqm of exhibition space, ICC Sydney will be the largest exhibition space in Australia. The international convention centre will be capable of collectively hosting more than 12,000 delegates and holding multiple large conferences and exhibitions concurrently.
Attending association, corporate and private events in Sydney will never be the same again. ICC Sydney guests will soon be experiencing sweeping views from a 5,000sqm external event deck, a spectacular new ballroomthat will provide space for more than 2,000 people and a red carpet entertainment complex.
With a capacity of 9,000 in general admission mode, the theatre, which features an innovative fan-shaped layout, will enrich the live experience by bringing audiences closer to performers and hosts.
Set within a lively dining and leisure scene, the AU$1.1 billion development is being delivered by the NSW Government and Darling Harbour Live as the epicentre of a 20-hectare transformation of Darling Harbour.
Just 8km from international and domestic airports, ICC Sydney will be a vibrant hub of innovation, fully integrated with strong transport and accommodation choices and interconnected with numerous retail areas and the largest central business district in Australia.
ICC Sydney will generate $5 billion in economic benefits for NSW over 25 years. Across the 20-hectare redevelopment, the project will create about 3,700 jobs during construction and a further 4,000 jobs on completion.
