Stand Construction

ICC Sydney requires temporary structures built for exhibitions or events to comply with relevant legislation, and are constructed with upmost concern for the safety of the public, employees and contractors. Due to fire engineering restrictions, the maximum permissible stand height is five (5) metres in the lower exhibition halls.  

Goods Lift

The goods lifts can be accessed from the loading dock of ICC Sydney’s convention centre and must be operated by venue staff or approved contractors. When using the lifts, maximum loading capacities must be observed. Safeguarding of lifts and loads is required to prevent damage to lift doors, walls and the control panel.

Lift Access

There are 2 lifts that access the Exhibition Centre from the P1 carpark at all times during the venue opening hours. Lift 12 is located to the far left of the boom gate when entring the P1 car park from Darling Drive and is located next to the exit to the Darling Harbour precinct closest to the Convention Centre. Lift 6 is located to the far right of the boom gate upon entering the car park and is located closer to the First State Super Theatre. These lifts will provide direct access to the lower halls (1-4) via level 2 and upper halls (Halls 5-7 and Event Deck) via level 4. 

Naked flames or candles

ICC Sydney’s permission is required for the use of naked flames or candles. Naked flames or candles can feature in a stand or booth if they are part of the product range or used for product demonstration. Ensure naked flames are safely positioned and cannot be knocked over or come into contact with any person or flammable item. All cloth and materials in close proximity to the candle or lit item are to be fire retardant. A fire extinguisher is required on the stand or booth and ICC Sydney may place a limit on the number of candles. Flames are to be extinguished 15 minutes prior to the stand being vacated at the end of the day. It is a basic safety precaution not to leave a stand unattended while candles are alight. Naked flames also include indoor/outdoor fire places, ethanol burners, BBQ’s, Gas heaters, fire pits etc. used as decorative homeware and entertaining. Click here for the Naked Flames Permit Form.

Rigging

Within the Exhibition halls all primary (top point) rigging including banner points are exclusively coordinated and installed by ICC Sydney. Secondary rigging points (attached to primary) can be arranged by ICC Sydney or recommended event suppliers details can be found in the event exhibitor manual.

Water and drainage

ICC Sydney is the exclusive provider of water and drainage services within the venue. Due to restricted access to water supply on the exhibition floor, it is crucial that all plumbing requirements are ordered well in advance of the move in date. ICC Sydney provides required water and drainage connection points in the nearest pit or trench. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to arrange connection from the service pit to equipment as well as any requirement for self-contained sinks.

Drains are exclusively provided for the drainage of grey water. Using drains for the disposal of grease, solids, solvents, hazardous materials or organic materials is not permitted.

Water Features

ICC Sydney requires details of any receptacles containing 200 litres or more of water or other liquids 20 working days before the event. Venue staff will fill the receptacles before the event and drain them after. Costs may apply for services including cleaning and repairs.
