New convention centre in Sydney, built for hybrid events

Infinity Convention Centre will open in 2021 as part of a mixed-use development in Green Square.

Crown Groups Infinity Convention Centre
Located "door-to-door to the airport and the city", the yet-to-be-completed convention centre is already receiving bookings.

Construction will begin next year on the new Infinity Convention Centre, part of Crown Group's AU$575 million (US$423 million) mixed-use project in the bustling Green Square precinct.

Set within a striking 20-storey arched building, the convention centre will open in the second half of 2021, sharing space with the 90-room SKYE Suites Green Square apartment hotel, plus a retail and dining precinct.

Location is a key draw here. When it opens, the Infinity Convention Centre offers direct access from the new Ebsworth Street and a new underground pedestrian walkway with wheelchair access lift linking Green Square train station.

According to Crown Group chairman and CEO, Iwan Sunito, the convenience factor is already attracting groups "who are interested in booking far ahead of opening time, because it is door-to-door to the airport and the city, with [Green Square] train station directly below".

The venue can be configured to offer classroom-style events for up to 65 people, conferences for up to 315, sit-down dinners or weddings for 385 people, plenaries for 425 people, and cocktail events for 450 people.

Sunito also positioned Infinity Convention Centre's build as "future-proof" and one that will bring the community together.

“Our sophisticated audio-visual and recording equipment... is purpose-built for tomorrow’s events and conferences. It will host events in which sharing ideas on the big screen to hundreds, thousands, if not millions of people around the world is as important as the live audience you have in the auditorium, just like in a TedTalk or an Anthony Robbins webinar."

When it opens, the new venue will also be the first purpose-built convention centre to open in Sydney since the launch of ICC Sydney at Darling Harbour in December 2016.
