International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), managed by ASM Global, has been crowned ‘Best Convention & Exhibition Centre’ at the 31st Annual TTG Travel Awards 2022, reaffirming its reputation as one of the premier convention, exhibition and entertainment venues in the Asia-Pacific region.
Situated at the heart of a vibrant inner-Sydney precinct on the water’s edge, ICC Sydney was recognised as a driving force in the Asia Pacific events industry, consistently providing world-class visitor experiences.
Chief Executive Officer of ICC Sydney and Group Director — Convention Centres ASM Global (APAC), Geoff Donaghy said the venue’s achievements were a testament to its innovative approach and exceptionally talented in-house team.
“The ICC Sydney team is proud to have been voted a winner in the TTG Travel Awards. Our gratitude goes to our network of travel agents for the support and recognition. This award reaffirms our positioning as being ‘More than a Venue’ for our clients, stakeholders and community.
“Our team of caring and passionate professionals is proud to deliver enhanced world-class services to meet client demand for face-to-face events that drive economic benefits, provide opportunities for knowledge exchange and add to the cultural capital of our vibrant city while delivering positive social impacts through our elevated approach to corporate social responsibility,” Geoff Donaghy said.
ICC Sydney has continued to enhance its in-house audio visual, event planning, sustainability and culinary services. The venue’s new services include Connect Hub, its one-stop destination for speaker preparation and digital event solutions, and Connect Outdoors, its styled open-air networking service, and its expanded industry-leading Legacy Program enriches client and delegate experiences. Last year, ICC Sydney’s clients and delegates both awarded the venue near-perfect scores ranking their satisfaction as 99 per cent.
The venue has worked to make a difference in its community as it released its second Reconciliation Action Plan and built on its ‘employer of choice’ position through an active diversity and inclusion program across its workforce.
“At our core, ICC Sydney’s team remains focused on our mission: to make a difference to our clients, delegates, stakeholders, team members and community as we win, run and support extraordinary events. To achieve this outstanding accolade is a great source of pride for ICC Sydney,” said Geoff Donaghy.
Held in Bangkok, Thailand last night, the prestigious travel industry event recognised the exemplary properties and suppliers in the Asia Pacific region that raise the bar of excellence across all aspects of travel, meetings and event management as voted by TTG readers this year.
