A little bit about Sydney
Set on the world’s largest natural harbour, Sydney is Australia’s iconic face to the world. It’s home to the World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, and tops most people’s list of dream destinations. The city consistently ranks high on global measures of liveability, sustainability, and health, safety and security.
Much more than a stunning location, Sydney is as multidimensional as it is multicultural. NSW’s 7.5 million people are highly educated and multilingual. The city is energetic and engaging; a hive of innovation across a number of key industries. Responsible for a quarter of national economic activity, Sydney is Australia’s only true global city.
Ozwater’17 will be held at International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney). Opening December 2016, featuring a striking contemporary design, leading technology and multipurpose spaces, ICC Sydney will be a beacon of innovation, learning and entertainment, connecting and celebrating leaders of invention, business, governance and the arts. In the heart of Sydney, ICC Sydney is located in the active precinct of Darling Harbour on Cockle Bay. ICC Sydney’s waterfront location in Darling Harbour attracts up to 26 million people annually. Set amongst restaurants, retail and a vibrant public domain, ICC Sydney is only a short walk to Australia’s largest CBD as well as surrounding university, cultural, creative and technology quarters.
