We are taking steps that go beyond the current NSW Government covid-safe guidelines. These include:

  • Maintaining a 1:2 sqm rule
  • Doubling the space available in the function room – this will enable safe distancing, allowing more tables with less numbers per table
  • Ensuring attendees are double vaccinated

The ICC is a large and spacious venue. We are working closely with the ICC’s event team to ensure adherence to their Event Safe Operating Guide. The following protocols will be strictly adhered to on the day:

  • Contactless sanitisation stations throughout the venue
  • Regular and thorough cleaning and sanitisation of surfaces
  • Ample spacing between tables and seating to allow for physical distancing
