The International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC
Sydney) has staged the first entirely in-person conference since
COVID19 restrictions came into effect in March.
The venue welcomed more than 125 doctors and health professionals to attend interactive HealthCert Education
certificate courses and workshops presented in person.
Taking place from 19-20 September, the conference was delivered in
line with ICC Sydney's EventSafe Operating
Framework while meeting the current NSW Government 150-person
limit per event.
The ‘EventSafe’ operating protocols included a streamlined event arrival process, extensive
hygiene measures including hand sanitiser stations, contactless
solutions for payment, regular cleaning of common touchpoints and
use of acrylic screens.
Additionally, each meeting room was set up
to accommodate physical distancing of one person per each four
square metres and allow for seating to be set 1.5 metres apart.
“I am pleased to welcome in-person conferences back to ICC
Sydney for the first time since the introduction of COVID19
restrictions. The ICC Sydney team have worked tirelessly to
develop a rigorous framework to allow us to begin confidently
running in person events, such as this event for HealthCert
Education,” said ICC Sydney CEO, Geoff Donaghy. “Through ICC Sydney’s EventSafe protocols, we
can continue to bring people together and provide clients with the
opportunity to meet with peace of mind that the utmost safety
measures are in place.”
Founder and CEO of HealthCert Education, Paul Elmslie,
said, “ICC Sydney provided us with a safe solution to proceed with
the delivery of our education through their rigorous, informed and
professional COVID safe measures and services. We couldn’t
be more pleased with our experience with ICC Sydney for the HealthCert Education certificate courses and we look forward to
collaborating on the upcoming events in our calendar.”
