As the hoardings go up for the construction of the new International Convention Centre Sydney at Darling Harbour (ICC Sydney), Acting Premier Andrew Stoner announced that Business Events Sydney has secured seven international events for the venue worth almost $50 million to the state economy.

“The success we have had so far in securing events for ICC Sydney, three years from its opening in late 2016, is phenomenal,” Mr Stoner said.

“Securing these events, in addition to the ones already booked for the interim Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, is a vote of confidence in the NSW Government’s plans for the state’s conventions and exhibitions industry."
