A Deloitte Access Economics study has determined delegates attending events at the ICC Sydney generated $820m in direct expenditure for the state in its second year of operation – an increase of $35m from its first year.

International and interstate visitors helped generate 72 per cent of the total expenditure, resulting in more than 1.57 million overnight stays in Sydney accommodation and the creation of 5248 full-time equivalent jobs for the local economy.

NSW Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Victor Dominello, said the results of the study demonstrated the remarkable success of the centre since opening in December 2016. Image courtesy of Anna Kucera.
