ICC Sydney Attracts The Hunger Games: The Exhibition

The Hunger Games: The Exhibition will be the first public exhibition to take place at the International Convention Centre Sydney’s (ICC Sydney) when it opens to the public on 20 December 2016.

 In its first viewing in Australia, The Hunger Games: The Exhibition leads a raft of exciting entertainment events at the precinct in December 2016 and early 2017, including gaming and internet culture exhibition, RTX Sydney 2017 and Australian International Tattoo Expo Sydney 2017.

 The precinct will also host performances from international superstars Keith Urban, PJ Harvey and José Carreras from December.

The exhibition will immerse visitors in the inspirational story of heroine, Katniss Everdeen, as the largest build and installation in the first wave of exhibitions held at ICC Sydney, which features 35,000 sqm of internal exhibition space and can cater to multiple concurrent events at any time.

The exhibition’s organiser and executive chairman of iLive, Michael Karriagiannis said it was an honour to be staging one of the inaugural exhibitions at the state of the art ICC Sydney.

"The Exhibition is a global phenomenon and an immersive interactive experience - an experience that will only be enhanced by ICC Sydney's excellent facilities,” he said.

ICC Sydney will open in a dynamic and activated Darling Harbour precinct full of restaurants, bars and public spaces. Featuring improved pedestrian access, it is only a short walk from the CBD, Barangaroo as well as Central and Town Hall train stations.

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said with overseas visitor spend in NSW reaching A$9.1 billion to June this year, Sydney finally has the facilities to deliver incredible attractions like The Hunger Games: The Exhibition to inspire international audiences.

“All visitors to Sydney, whether domestic, international or living within our great city will be blown away by the diversity of events at this new $1.5 billion venue set to generate at least $5 billion in economic benefit for NSW over the next 25 years and directly employ at least 1,800 people,” he said. “ICC Sydney is already fast cementing Sydney's place as the world's most exciting tourism and event destination in the world.”

The Hunger Games: The Exhibition will run from 20 December 2016 to 4 February 2017 (excluding NYE and Christmas Day).
