Industry veteran Phil King is set to oversee ICC Sydney’s three theatres, a 5,000 square metres of open air event deck and 2,400 square metres of multipurpose event space.
King, who has 14 years’ experience across venues such as Allphones Arena and Suncorp Stadium, said, “Entertainment at ICC Sydney will set a new standard for performers and deliver a world class experience for visitors. The venues are equipped with state of the art equipment, superior staging and technical facilities. Stellar sound and visuals will be brought to life through high definition screens, large scale projection and the highest quality audio equipment.
“When ICC Sydney opens in December, it will represent a new era in the live entertainment scene in our city. That is something very special, and I can’t wait to share the experience with locals and visitors alike,” said King.
Chief executive officer of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy, said King brings an excellent mix of industry relationships, commercial skills, major venue experience and passion for his craft to the position.
“ICC Sydney will bring together sophisticated architectural design and technical facilities to create a real paradigm shift in how Sydney enjoys events. Phil is passionate about live entertainment and creating the best environment for Sydneysiders, international visitors, promoters and performers so we believe he matches our vision and will thrive in this role” said Donaghy.
King joins ICC Sydney following four years as Commercial Manager for Allphones Arena and more than eight years as the Commercial Manager for Suncorp Stadium, both of which are managed by ICC Sydney’s globally acclaimed venue manager, AEG Ogden.
