IN­TER­NA­TIONAL Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Syd­ney (ICC Syd­ney) has staged Si­bos, the world’s fi­nan­cial ser­vices event which wel­comed more than 7,600 busi­ness lead­ers, aca­demics and en­trepreneurs from 150 coun­tries ear­lier this month.

ICC Syd­ney CEO, Ge­off Don­aghy said it took a col­lab­o­ra­tive city to win and host a high-im­pact, in­ter­na­tional event like Si­bos.

“The en­tire city worked tire­lessly to en­sure Si­bos del­e­gates en­joyed the full­spec­trum Syd­ney ex­pe­ri­ence, from the Con­ven­tion Cen­tre ferry ser­vices, the cal­i­bre of lo­cal restau­rants to the bril­liant City of Syd­ney vol­un­teer guides across the venue and the precinct,” said Don­aghy.

“We are also im­mensely proud of our team and the mul­ti­fac­eted event con­cept we de­liv­ered, which re­flects al­most five years of plan­ning and in­cludes our most com­plex ca­ter­ing ef­fort to date.”

The ca­ter­ing in­volved daily cus­tomised food and bev­er­age op­tions, the creation of a 1,800 seat, pur­pose-built Si­bos Restau­rant housed within one of the ICC Ex­hi­bi­tion Halls, a menu de­sign for 78 ex­hibitor cock­tail par­ties and on-stand ca­ter­ing for 130 ex­hibitors.

The Si­bos pro­gram fea­tured panel ses­sions and in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal speak­ers while con­nect­ing busi­ness lead­ers and re­veal­ing the lat­est in­no­va­tions in the dig­i­tal econ­omy.

Don­aghy said that Si­bos would ex­ceed its es­ti­mated $40m in eco­nomic im­pact.
