ICC Sydney looks to national market as restrictions ease

International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has welcomed the NSW Government’s easing of Covid-19 restrictions from next week.

Starting December 7, corporate and live entertainment events with maximum capacity limits will be determined by the new one person per two square metres rule.

ICC Sydney is now reviewing the implications of the proposed public health order changes to its operational capacity and upcoming events schedule, including the number of attendees permitted in its Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre and Aware Super Theatre.

“The changes will move us much closer to freeing up the national market and bolster our ability to promote Sydney as a safe business events destination with confidence,” said ICC Sydney CEO, Geoff Donaghy.

“We are awaiting the finer details of the public health order and will be documenting it with our clients to support their event execution.

“We still have some way to go with the resurrection of international business which is vital to our full recovery. We remain focused on continuing to work with industry representative bodies to progress a long-term recovery strategy for business events to ensure this remains on the agenda with decisions makers.”
