ICC Sydney impresses with Sibos
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.
