Samantha Taranto has been appointed as the new Communications Director of the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney).

A senior communications and public relations professional, Samanthas 14 years of experience spans communications consulting and in-house corporate affairs with companies including AMP Capital, The GPT Group and Weber Shandwick.

Chief Executive Officer of ICC Sydney and AEG Ogden Group Conventions Director, Geoff Donaghy said Samanthas appointment would continue to build the growing momentum and interest in ICC Sydney.

Construction is now well underway and following the confirmation of Sibos in 2018, the worlds largest financial conference, we are pleased to welcome such a seasoned communications professional to our executive team. Samantha brings a wealth of corporate, industry, government and community engagement experience to the role, having delivered award-winning campaigns and communication strategies for large-scale development projects along the East Coast of Australia, Mr Donaghy said.

Opening in December 2016, ICC Sydney will be one of Australias largest and first fully-integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment centres.

ICC Sydney is located on Sydneys waterfront amidst a dynamic precinct with a rich arts and dining scene and just a moments walk from the CBD, Circular Quay, Central Station, Chinatown and a number of institutions of learning.

It is well supported by ground transport, including train, bus and light rail, and is just eight kilometres from international and domestic airports.
