Breaking News – Pages Hire consortium to deliver Glebe Island Expo

Glebe Island Expo details revealed.

The NSW government has just confirmed the successful tenderer for the Glebe Island Expo temporary facility which will house exhibitions and events during the construction of the Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct at Darling Harbour.

A company called Sydney Harbour Expo @ Glebe Island, formed by Pages Hire and also believed to include Echo Entertainment, has been selected to build, operate and remove the interim facility.

Infrastructure NSW Project Director, Tim Parker, said the project would see the creation of a fully enclosed and fully-serviced marquee-style structure of 25,000 square metres – almost replicating the current exhibition space at Darling Harbour.

The tender originally asked for 15,000 sqm of space with a temporary addition of 10,000 sqm available for larger shows.

“The plan to have one large space undercover was developed in consultation with and endorsed by the major exhibition organisers that use the current facilities in Darling Harbour,” Parker said, with the facility being provided at the same cost to the NSW government.

He said the government was proposing a strong focus on public transport to the facility, including shuttle bus and ferry services on event days.

The new facility will be known as Sydney Harbour Expo, with construction scheduled for commencement by the middle of 2013.
