Phil King Joins ICC Sydney Executive Team

AEG Ogden executive Phil King was announced director of live entertainment for the A$1.1 billion ($833 million) International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), which opens in December.

The New South Wales government is transforming the 20-hectare region into a premier convention, exhibition and entertainment destination. AEG Ogden is already on board to operate the precinct’s venues.

With more than 14 years’ experience, King was most recently commercial manager for AEG Ogden venues, four years at Sydney’s Allphones Arena and eight at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium. King will work with promoters on international and Australian music, theatrical and comedy performances. “Entertainment at ICC Sydney will set a new standard for performers and deliver a world class experience for visitors,” he said in a statement.
