New ‘future proof’ convention centre for Sydney

Crown Group will start construction early next year on a new purpose-built convention centre in Sydney.

Located at Green Square, the Infinity Convention Centre will have capacity for up to 425 people.

The centre will form part of the $575 million Infinity by Crown Group, a 20-storey building designed by world-renowned Koichi Takada Architects that includes a new hotel and retail and dining precinct.

“We envision this as becoming a centre for knowledge and for sharing ideas, a place to inspire, ignite and transform people, bringing alive the sense of giving within people,” Crown Group chairman and group CEO Iwan Sunito said.

“Our sophisticated audio-visual and recording equipment will create a future-proof conference centre – one that is purpose-built for tomorrow’s events and conferences. It will host events in which sharing ideas on the big screen to many hundreds, thousands, if not millions of people around the world is as important as the live audience you have in the auditorium, just like in a TedTalk or an Anthony Robbins webinar.

“The convenience factor is already attracting groups who are interested in booking far ahead of opening time, because it is door to door to the airport and the city, with the train station directly below.”

Event space configurations on offer include classroom-style for up to 65 people, conference for up to 315, sit-down dinners for 385 people, auditorium style for 425 people and cocktail events for 450 people.

“The combination of world-class architecture and interiors as well as its unbeatable location will make this the most sought-after new event space in Sydney,” said SKYE Suites director of hotels David Bowen.

“This will be a world-class multifunctional venue with the best equipment on the market, so it will attract the best events from around the world.

“Delegates will have the option of staying at the 90-room SKYE Suites Green Square apartment hotel on site as well as access to an exciting new dining precinct that forms the new social hub for Green Square.”
