This congress begins in:










A Truly Cosmopolitan City

Sydney is Australia's largest and most famous city, it is also is one of the world’s most loved cities and it has a sunny and vibrant buzz. Sydney is home to beautiful beaches, iconic buildings, historic landmarks, award-winning restaurants, and a vibrant culture. From the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour to the serene tranquillity of Hyde Park, Sydney is truly a cosmopolitan City.


Sydney International Convention Centre

ICC Sydney is at the heart of its very own Sydney Harbour waterfront precinct, set amongst restaurants, retail and a vibrant public domain on Darling Harbour yet is only a short walk to Australia’s largest CBD and surrounding university and cultural quarters.

Featuring a striking contemporary design, leading technology and multipurpose spaces, ICC Sydney will cater for the needs of conventions, exhibitions and events well into the future.

ICC Sydney is a development that sits at the heart of a broader revitalisation of the Darling Harbour precinct.  The development will see the introduction of a new, adjacent hotel with circa 600 rooms, a new residential and commercial development, a new pedestrian boulevard that will connect the waterfront back to Central Station and laneways to further activate this iconic Sydney destination.
