International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) successfully delivered a further three virtual events in the first week of August, bringing the total number of in-house virtual or hybrid events to 156 over the past year.
Connect Media’s Healthcare Leaders Forum, Landcare Australia’s National Landcare Conference and The Law Society of New South Wales’ Specialist Accreditation Conference all utilised the venue’s studio spaces and ICC Sydney Connect platform.
Connect Media’s operations manager, Bridee Arrighi, said: “We’ve been pleased to be able to continue to host our events virtually with ICC Sydney. Their audio-visual expertise, studio spaces and ICC Sydney Connect platform assisted us to ensure a seamless experience for our partners, speakers, and delegates.”
ICC Sydney delivered Connect Media’s Healthcare Leaders Forum for a third time, and in a virtual format for the second year running. Over the last year, Connect Media has selected ICC Sydney for 12 events, eight of which were presented virtually utilising the ICC Sydney Connect customisable platform.
ICC Sydney director of audio-visual services, Brian Nash, said: “Under the extremely challenging circumstances created by the pandemic, supporting event organisers to deliver essential, flexible and high-quality hybrid and virtual event solutions has been central to our service over the last year.”
Landcare Australia’s National Landcare Conference is the largest knowledge sharing convention for the Landcare community. This year it was streamed from ICC Sydney to an online audience of 3,000.
ICC Sydney’s dedicated audio-visual team supported the programme, which saw plenary and multiple virtual breakout sessions delivered from a centralised physical location. Each session was set up with a local facilitator and supported by a technician.
Melissa Higgins, marketing and communications director at Landcare Australia, said: “The National Landcare Conference attracts delegates from around the world and from rural, regional and urban communities in Australia with a common purpose to actively restore and protect the environment in their local community through sustainable land management and conservation activities.”
