ICC Sydney holds Exhibitions in Focus event to boost collaboration with planners

"Opportunities that drive trade, investment and innovation are made possible through exhibitions and the business connections that are sparked on the expo floor," Geoff Donaghy said.

The International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), managed by ASM Global, has held its latest Exhibitions In Focus event, designed to help event organisers understand how to get the most of exhibitions.

It covered a wide range of topics, such as employment law (including Respect@Work reforms), risk and safety in technology, logistics, customer experiences and services, sustainability, marketing and precinct updates.

“ICC Sydney’s operational and technical experts carefully curated the Exhibitions in Focus program for our valued exhibition organiser clients, sharing their in-depth guidance to collaboratively enhance their events,” ICC Sydney chief executive officer and group director – Convention Centres, ASM Global (APAC), Geoff Donaghy, said.

The running of the event highlighted the value that the ICC Sydney team places on collaboration and knowledge exchange, Matt Pearce, chief executive officer of Talk2 Media and Events – which recently hosted the Good Food and Wine Show at the ICC Sydney – said.

“The support from ICC Sydney’s entire team has consistently been exemplary and forward thinking and the latest Exhibitions in Focus initiative reaffirms their commitment to partnering with organisers to deliver the outstanding exhibitions that our vendors and visitors demand,” Pearce said.  

“We know that people are actively seeking high quality entertainment and experiences. Hearing the venue team’s advice regarding human resources and employment legislation, event services, sustainability, risk, building services, logistics, marketing and exhibitor services all in one forum at Exhibitions in Focus will no doubt prove to be integral in the planning of future successful shows delivered at ICC Sydney.”

ICC Sydney has a substantial exhibition and conference calendar booked for the months ahead, including: the Online Retailer and E-Commerce Expo, Australasian Gaming Expo, Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo, Beauty Expo, Home Show, Sydney Property Expo, Luxperience, and The International Mining and Resources Conference.

“Opportunities that drive trade, investment and innovation are made possible through exhibitions and the business connections that are sparked on the expo floor. The economic and social impacts of these shows and the audiences they attract, are enjoyed by our Sydney community as well as regional economies,” Donaghy said.
