ICC Sydney kick starts AV graduate program with highest number of new recruits


International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has activated its Audio Visual (AV) Graduate Program for the fifth time with the highest ever number of graduates joining the venue’s ranks.

ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy said the program provided candidates with a fast-tracked gateway into the world of events.

“ICC Sydney is committed to creating innovative events that connect with audiences of today and into the future,” he said.

“Our AV graduates play a pivotal role in this – they gain invaluable experience delivering exciting events to best practice, grow their careers as they are mentored by seasoned AV professionals – while helping us to future proof events of tomorrow.”

ICC Sydney director of AV services Brian Nash said 29 AV graduates have been through the program to date.

“We’re delighted to kick start ICC Sydney’s 2024 AV Graduate Program with our highest ever number of recruits,” he said.

“Our program is a proven pathway for candidates to experience delivering a diverse calendar of creative and complex events, developing their in-demand skills, all while working towards potential employment opportunities through the program that has retained 100 per cent of past graduates, progressing them through to casual and permanent roles.”

New recruit Alexia Testa said the ICC Sydney AV Graduate Program is well-known in the AV industry as one of the best entry-level professional development programs in the country.

“I’m looking forward to absorbing all the knowledge the team shares with me and grasping opportunities ahead as I work within each discipline of the AV department,” she said.
