Visitors to International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) are set to experience world class audio visual (AV) technologies backed by unparalleled technical expertise with industry veteran, Brian Nash, now on board as Director of Audio Visual Services for Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct.
Tasked with sourcing, testing and delivering creative AV solutions to a raft of venues within ICC Sydney, Nash and his team will support a year-round calendar of events, exhibitions and conventions and work to futureproof the AU $1.5 billion venue.
Nash said his mission is to deliver seamless and flexible systems and processes that will ensure both visitors’ and business partners’ expectations are exceeded from day one.
“ICC Sydney will set a new benchmark for venue technology with leading technical and production facilities including high definition screens, large-scale projection capabilities and first rate audio technology and equipment. Launching this December, it represents a paradigm shift in the way events will be delivered in our city. This role is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m thrilled to be part of such a landmark opening.”
Chief Executive Officer of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy, said Nash has more than thirty years’ experience and will bring passion and dedication to the highly technical role.
“Brian is a highly experienced operator and the ideal candidate for this challenging audio visual role which will see him working across multiple spaces within the integrated precinct. He will support our vision for delivering extraordinary sound, visuals and technology, and help create events and meetings that inspire the imagination and boost professional development,” he said.
Nash will be responsible for implementing effective and efficient AV systems and processes, ensuring installation, testing, commissioning and operational readiness of all systems and equipment alongside a seamless transition between the testing and operating phases.
Nash brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the role having worked on numerous touring productions, festivals and venues including Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
