EEAA announces near completion of Glebe Island venue

News this week: According to the Exhibition and Events Association of Australasia (EEAA), the interim 25,000 m2 venue, Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, is now near completion and will be ready for the mid-February start of the 2014 exhibition season as scheduled.

The new facility is located at Sydney Harbour adjacent to the Anzac Bridge. A “commissioning” event at the site was recently held by the venue’s operator AEG Ogden. EEAA praised the completion of construction over a tight six-month schedule and highlighted the positive feedback received from its members on the quality of the facilities.

Joyce DiMascio, chief executive of EEAA, said, “The completion of this project in just six months has been a major collaboration between the NSW Government, Infrastructure NSW, Lend Lease, AEG Ogden and our industry. This has been a big team effort and the EEAA would like to thank NSW Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner for backing this project and ensuring that our Members have a place to do business in 2014, 2015 and 2016 while the permanent facilities at Darling Harbour are being built.”
