International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney)has unveiled a new multi-faceted legacy programme to squeeze the most lasting benefit out of the meetings it hosts.

Starting in January, the venue will offer its clients the chance to engage with the destination across four streams: Innovators, Generation Next, Aboriginal Australia, and Sustainability.

The programme will allow associations to connect with Sydney’s entrepreneurs and start-ups, its most talented students and local Aboriginal businesses. The sustainability option, meanwhile, will allow clients to reduce and then measure the ecologically impact of their meetings.

Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, said: “We have already been working collaboratively with a network of partners across the four streams and are thrilled to formalise a program which will invigorate our clients’ event programs, strengthen Sydney’s knowledge economy and support local businesses with tangible commercial benefit.”

Each stream will be delivered in partnership with private enterprise, government and education providers, including New South Wales (NSW) Indigenous Chamber of Commerce (NICC), TAFE NSW, Sydney Water, the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) and 11 NSW universities, among others.

“We’re proud to be attracting some of the world’s most-highly regarded conferences and events to Sydney, including the likes of CeBIT Australia, Sibos 2018, COSPAR 2020 - dubbed the space Olympics - and the 18th World Congress on Medical and Health Informatics (MedInfo 2021). With our new Legacy Program in place, ICC Sydney will be even better placed to support clients and build the city’s reputation as one of the world’s leading event destinations,” said Donaghy.
