In an operational triumph, International Convention Centre Sydney has staged Sibos, the world’s premier financial services event, welcoming more than 7,600 business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs from 150 countries to Sydney shores.

Delivering a trifecta of meticulous preparation, premium service and best-in-class facilities, ICC Sydney collaborated with event organisers, SWIFT, to create a dynamic delegate experience featuring a complex multi-day conference program and world class trade show with 180 exhibitors alongside custom-built stands, interactive zones and live activations.To support the premier event, both the Convention and Exhibition Centres were exclusively activated for four days, while an additional 75 private meetings ran concurrently to the official program in a range of ICC Sydney’s flexible spaces. Pop-up and multi-purpose locations were also set up for delegates to enjoy between sessions, taking full advantage of the venue’s waterside location and natural light. This included the transformation of the 5,000sqm open-air Event Deck into a connected garden sanctuary – the ultimate place to rest and reflect on sessions from the industries top experts, complete with early morning Tai Chi classes.

ICC Sydney CEO, Geoff Donaghy said it takes a collaborative city to win and host a high-impact, international event like Sibos: “Along with many great partners, ICC Sydney supported BESydney to win the bid for this event. The entire city worked tirelessly to ensure Sibos delegates enjoyed the full-spectrum 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. 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.“
