Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award

Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.

“I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said.

ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host.

“The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.”

The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure.

The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
