BEN breaking news – Glebe Island interim exhibition site for Sydney

NSW government announces Glebe Island Expo.

The NSW government has today announced that an interim facility will be built on Sydney’s Glebe Island to temporarily host exhibitions during the redevelopment of the Darling Harbour precinct.

Dubbed Glebe Island Expo, the interim facility will provide 15,000 square metres of exhibition space in a “high quality, fully serviced, air conditioned pavilion,” according to Minister for Tourism and Major Events, George Souris.

An extra 10,000 square metres will be available for exhibitors to temporarily expand the space for larger exhibitions and trade shows, he added.

Only part of the site will be required for the interim facility, with exhibitions to “co-exist” with other port users. Improvements to the site will include better public transport access, with a ferry service to the site likely.

It’s part of a “Sydney-wide solution to ensure NSW’s events industry stays number one during construction” of the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct project at Darling Harbour, which will also see other venues such as Olympic Park, Moore Park, the Hordern Pavilion, Luna Park, Royal Randwick, the Australian Technology Park, Allphones Arena and Sydney’s hotels play an expanded role in hosting conferences, smaller exhibitions and entertainment.

Infrastructure NSW will shortly issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) from companies interested in designing, building and then removing the interim facility in 2016, with the RFP also including event-related food and beverage facilities such as pop-up cafes and restaurants.
