Australia's newest roof top venue revealed at ICC Sydney
28 September 2016
Sydney has unveiled its latest iconic outdoor venue with International Convention Centre Sydney’s (ICC Sydney) Event Deck expected to be a major drawcard to the revamped Darling Harbour precinct.
The Event Deck forms part of the benchmark-setting ICC Sydney, Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment venue, with its 5,000sqm open air space and 1,000sqm outdoor lounge and bar area, creating a unique outdoor space in Sydney. It can cater to large-scale events that will be visible from Tumbalong Park and even parts of the CBD.
NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Andrew Constance said: “This world class outdoor space will be a spectacular place to hold showcase events. It is the size of a football field and has magnificent views of the city skyline and harbour, overlooking Tumbalong Park.
“The Event Deck is pivotal to the revitalisation of Darling Harbour’s exhibition and convention space and provides the facilities and functionality to draw international meetings and business events. It will be a true icon of activation and entertainment in the heart of Sydney.”
The expansive Event Deck provides additional flexibility to the venue, opening from the Exhibition Centre, and can be used in a variety of ways, including the erection of large-scale marquee facilities.
ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy said the deck was yet another feature that allows the venue to stand out from more traditional convention and exhibition centres.
“The Event Deck is a wonderful extension of the upper exhibition halls, and both exhibition and convention clients are already expressing great interest in,” he said.
