Sydney Centre Creates Feature-Packed New Website

The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre has unveiled a new website, filled with new features including a 3D Sydney fly-over and a virtual restaurant for cooking up delicious events.

The new site brings the Centre’s acclaimed cuisine to the fore, allowing event organisers to design their own custom menus from hundreds of beautifully presented dishes by Executive Chef Uwe Habermehl.

Visitors can peruse the Centre’s entire menu compendium, view photographs of more than 500 individual dishes, search for dishes by dietary requirement and save their menu concepts to a personal profile where they can calculate costs and share with colleagues.

The menu design facility is one of many new features on the Centre’s website, designed for simpler navigation and arranged around a showcase of panoramic Sydney photography.

A new interactive 3D map allows event planners to fly over Sydney to see the Centre’s location, then explore the entire facility and its individual meeting rooms, auditoria and exhibition spaces.

Each room can be viewed as a floor-plan, in photographs or via 360-degree virtual tours, along with detailed information on its size, features and capacity.

Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said the new website gave conference organisers an opportunity to visualise and shape their event from the outset.

“The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre is constantly evolving and remains Australia’s leading events facility, so it’s appropriate we present its assets and services in a contemporary, interactive style,” Van Amerongen said. “Instead of a static brochure, the Centre’s new website is a tool in itself that helps organisers see and create their event.”

Other features of the website include a media centre presenting the Centre’s latest news, images and videos, as well as connections to its blog and social media sites.

Specialist services are explained in detail including profiles on Centre Technical Production and Design, Centre Video Production and the venue’s high-tech IT and communications facilities, while a Sydney destination profile offers information on the city’s attractions, services, transport, hotels and other visitor infrastructure.
