ICC Sydney draws on global experience of AEG Ogden
Although the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is still two years away from opening, the venue's pre-opening team is able to draw on parent company AEG Ogden’s experience in operating highly successful venues around the globe, according to ICC Sydney Chief Executive and AEG Ogden Group Director of Convention Centres.
Donaghy currently oversees the strategy and management of nine of the world’s leading convention and exhibition centres, including the AEG managed Los Angeles and Hawaii facilities. Closer to home AEG Ogden operates Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Cairns Convention Centre, Darwin Convention Centre and Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island.
Donaghy explains “although each venue is run independently, the ability to share experiences and intelligence allows AEG Ogden to develop better venues and more knowledgeable teams.
“The transfer of intelligence across the Group is ultimately about one thing; to better understand client needs.”
Many of the 19 major international events Business Events Sydney has secured for ICC Sydney, which opens in December 2016, have previously been hosted in AEG Ogden centres, which makes knowledge sharing across the Group invaluable to the ICC Sydney team.
Donaghy adds “in reality, someone somewhere across the Group has faced a problem and found a creative or innovative solution that we can all draw on to prepare clients for success.
“Our ability to share knowledge across management teams allows us to solve problems faster and understand clients better.”
Another important component of being a member of the AEG Ogden Group is the trusted reputation that accompanies this status.
Donaghy concludes “clients can be assured of a successful event in all of the Group’s world class venues; although bespoke to each destination, every event receives the same world class quality of service, venue presentation, availability of leading technology and exceptional hospitality across the network.”
