ICC Rules for Children Onsite:

The safety of all visitors to the venue is ICC Sydney’s primary concern. During move-in and move-out periods, children under the age of 15 years are not permitted in the venue or the loading docks. At all other times children under the age of 15 years must be supervised by an adult in all areas within the venue.

Closest Hotels

The closest official Annual Meeting hotels to the ICC are the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour and the Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour. To get the best rates for these hotels, please book through our official housing bureau via the Housing link on the meeting home page or through official ISMRM/SMRT emails sent to members.
