ICC Sydney at the centre of thriving super precinct

first_imgInternational Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) was at the centre of discussions this week as a forum focused on the rejuvenation of Sydney’s western harbour took place, with private and public sector representatives debating on how best to promote an emerging super precinct.ICC Sydney chief executive officer and AEG Ogden Group conventions director Geoff Donaghy said even though the international convention centre was in its own defined area of Darling Harbour, it was also helped along by the growth of neighbouring finance, technology, media and student centres.“A world class venue that will be underpinned by sophisticated services and people, ICC Sydney delegates and guests will enjoy the benefits of attending business and leisure events at the epicentre of a growing business, finance and innovation precinct along Sydney’s western waterfront,” Mr Donaghy said.A new global financial services centre at the Barangaroo development, an expanding media and technology hub in Pyrmont, more students and start-ups originating from the University of Technology Sydney and more residents through local residential development will constitute the ICC Sydney new surroundings.“This week we have seen individual businesses and business groups, different tiers of Government, university leaders and individuals all meet to discuss how to best leverage the current rejuvenation of Sydney’s western harbour and deliver the best results for Sydney.“It feels as though the entire city is in support of the delivery of a successful western harbour revitalisation and that means a great result for ICC Sydney as well as this beautiful city,” Mr Donaghy said.ICC Sydney is due to open in December 2016.Source = ETB News: Jessica Handysidelast_img
