ICC Sydney’s awards trifecta

The International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) took home three awards at the Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) NSW Awards.

Best Venue – capacity over 500, the Education and Training Award, and Event Manager of the Year – in-house; Dewi Gutierrez, were all awarded to ICC Sydney.

It was the second time for ICC Sydney to be awarded Best Venue – capacity over 500, with the venue taking home the top accolade at the NSW MEA Awards last year.

CEO of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy said the award wins were testament to the entire venue.

“To be honoured with the Best Venue award for the second year running reflects not only the quality of our infrastructure, but also the industry benchmark we have set for event delivery,” he said.

“This achievement would not be possible without our highly skilled and trained 1,700 team members, for whom we are focused on creating careers, not just jobs, and providing them with learning and development opportunities to succeed.

“Dewi’s achievement is just one example of how our team members are excelling in their own fields. She has been an integral part of the Events Services team since ICC Sydney opened in 2016 and consistently receives ringing endorsements and positive feedback resulting from the success of our clients.”

MEA CEO Robyn Johnson said the awards were a reflection of the quality of service at ICC Sydney.

“From the moment it opened in 2016, ICC Sydney has set a new level of standards for the meetings and events industry,” she said.

“The positive feedback we receive from our members is a reflection of the world class event delivery that takes place every day at ICC Sydney.”
