AEG Ogden Venues Share Information Across Network

The International Convention Centre Sydney is capitalizing on the success of the AEG Ogden network of venues. 

As Group Director of Convention Centres for AEG Ogden, ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy has oversight of the strategies and management issues for nine large-scale convention and exhibition centers, including AEG-managed Los Angeles and Hawaii facilities. Donaghy noted that while each venue is run independently, the teams at each can share experiences and intelligence allows AEG Ogden to develop better venues and more knowledgeable teams. 

Many of the nineteen major international events Business Events Sydney has secured for ICC Sydney, set to open in December 2016, have previously been hosted in other AEG Ogden centers, making the transfer of information and knowledge vital to the ICC Sydney team.

For example, the two most recent announcements for ICC Sydney have been held in AEG Ogden managed centers; in 2010 the World Congress of Accountants was hosted by the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and the International Chamber of Commerce World Chambers Federation (ICC WCF) Congress met in Kuala Lumpur in 2009 and Qatar in 2013.

The recent G20 Leaders Summit and Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting were held at AEG Ogden-managed venues the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and Cairns Convention Centre.

“In reality, someone somewhere across the Group has faced a problem and found a creative or innovative solution that we can all draw on...Our ability to share knowledge across management teams allows us to solve problems faster and understand clients better,” Donaghy said. 

AEG Ogden is a joint venture between Australian controlled venue management interests and AEG Facilities of the United States. AEG Facilities is a stand-alone affiliate of the Anchutz Entertainment Group (AEG), one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world. Standout venues across AEG include the Barclays Center (Brooklyn), Estadio Maracana (Rio De Janeiro), MercedesBenz Arena (Shanghai), Staples Centre (Los Angeles) and entertainment districts LA Live (Los Angeles) and The O2 (London).

AEG Ogden manages Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Cairns Convention Centre, Darwin Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island as well as two centres currently under development; Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre and International Convention Centre Sydney.
