ICC Sydney is on track to open in December on Cockle Bay in Darling Harbour. Eye-catching contemporary architecture; more than 375,000 square feet of exhibition space; three tiered theaters, seating 8,000, 2,500, and 1,000 delegates; a grand ballroom for up to 2,000 guests, and 53,000-square-foot event deck are just some of the features that will be drawing groups down under in 2017.
Not to be outdone, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre announced its expansion plans in May. The addition, expected to open in early 2018, will add 215,000 square feet to the venue, bringing the total to more than 753,000 square feet.
And north in Brisbane they’ve got something to crow about as well. In July, the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Center beat out 15 finalists to take home the award for “Highest Client Rating Received by a Convention Center” at the annual conference AIPC, the International Association of Convention Centres, not IACC.
