International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has bolstered its technology infrastructure following a $1m investment that has added new high definition screens, projectors, wireless microphone kits, cameras, and processors.
The Darling Harbour venue has also a new AV and Technology guide for clients, in conjunction with the upgrade. The guide details the venue’s complete audio visual and technical specifications across more than 70 meeting and events spaces, including the surrounding public domain, Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre and ICC Sydney Theatre.
Geoff Donaghy, CEO, ICC Sydney, said: “The latest venue enhancements will support our ongoing quest for excellence, providing access to an exceptional suite of technical solutions, equipment and services, backed by unmatched in-house expertise.
“We have worked hard to future-proof the venue, which has the ability to further flex and adapt as new technology is introduced. This ensures we can meet the needs of every event type today and into the future.”
ICC Sydney’s Director of Audio Visual Services, Brian Nash, revealed that ICC Sydney is also investing in the development of future technical professionals with a range of education and training.
Nash added: “ICC Sydney’s most important asset is its people. Their skills and work ethic make real differences for our clients and as such, we look to hire the best talent available.
“Adding to the learning and development opportunities available to the team through ICC Sydney’s Academy of Extraordinary, we are proud to have recently launched an industry-first, paid AV Graduate program.
“Now underway, our program has accepted an initial five extraordinary candidates to gain exposure to all areas of AV services including rigging, audio, lighting and vision over the next year.”
