Glebe Island exhibition contracts agreed

News this week: The management agency of Sydney’s Darling Harbour redevelopment, Infrastructure NSW (INSW), has announced four contracts to build an interim exhibition centre at Glebe Island have been finalised and early site work will begin this month. The interim exhibition space is expected to open in time for the start of Sydney’s 2014 exhibition season, which begins in February.

The interim facilities will be named the Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island, and will include 20,000 m2 of pavilion-style exhibition space, an additional 5,000 m2 of temporary expansion space, food and beverage facilities, loading-docks, as well as storage and waste management facilities.

The existing convention and exhibition facilities at Darling Harbour will close in December this year for the development of the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition & Entertainment Precinct (SICEEP).
