"It will be a unique opportunity for suitably qualified executives to be part of one of the most exciting major convention and exhibition facilities in the world."

The Director of Sales will require experience and a proven track record in a similar facility or facilities and have an excellent understanding of the business events industry.

The International Sales Manager will require strong experience in and an excellent understanding of the international business events industry.

The Communications Manager will require a high level of communications and media experience as well as creative marketing skills, but not necessarily in convention or exhibition venues.

Construction work on the site at Darling Harbour is already underway and a pre-opening office would be in place soon.

ICC Sydney will be operated by AEG Ogden, the leading venue management company in the Asia Pacific region. It is due for completion in December 2016.

Commenting on the appointment of Helen Mantellato as Exhibition Sales Manager at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney, Dongahy added "she is a business-driven and sales focused professional with an impressive track record in attracting, retaining and managing major events in the competitive Australian and Sydney market."

Mantellato had been with the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre since it opened in 1988 and had been its Director of Sales (Exhibitions) for the past 10 years.

Mantellato has also received a number of professional and industry awards including a NSW Olympic Council Order of Merit in 2013, the Trevor Riddell President's Award in 2009, the Outstanding Operations Person for NSW in 1997.
