New Sydney event venues feature state-of-the-art technologies, plenty of flexible spaces

Rydges World Square proudly boasts world-class Sydney event venues that have earned Tourism Accommodation Australia’s prestigious 2013 Conference Hotel of the Year award. The honour solidifies our commitment to offering deluxe accommodation and modern technologies in one of the largest conference and event centres in Sydney’s CBD. The prestigious hospitality honour sets Rydges World Square apart from other Sydney hotels.

Our new Sydney event venue with state-of-the-art technologies and natural lighting offers seven rooms with 600 square meters of flexible space that can accommodate up to 550 people.  Whether hosting an intimate boardroom meeting, elegant cocktail party, wedding ceremony and reception or spirited holiday party, our professional and courteous team members with more than 20 years of experience can assist in menu planning, FREE WI-FI, audio and visual support and tailoring a package to fit all needs and budgets. 

Being ideally located in the CBD, our Sydney event venues put guests close to Darling Harbour, The Entertainment Centre, Museum Station, Hyde Park and Sydney Airport (SYD). Bus and train service bring guests straight to the front entrance of Rydges World Square, and valet parking is available 24 hours a day for those driving in from other parts of Australia.

After attending an event in our new conference centre, guests will find deluxe, well-appointed accommodation to get a sound night’s sleep, enjoy a savory Italian meal or imbibe a custom-concocted cocktail. Sphere Restaurant and The Cidery Bar & Kitchen are near our Sydney event venues on the lobby level, making them convenient spaces to mingle before or after intense strategic planning sessions or festive wedding ceremonies.

‘awesomely excellent’

"The conference ran perfectly. The staff were really attentive and helpful.
The only feedback I received was positive. I had great feedback about the food (even those with dietary requirements were happy with their selections!).
I would highly recommend World Square as a venue for anyone wanting a conference in Sydney cbd."

"The event went very smoothly.  Many of the stakeholders commented on the food and venue as being excellent.  Personally, the gentleman (forgot his name) who was assigned to assist us was most helpful.  He was attentive and was able to make changes when discussed. We would be happy to use Rydges World Square again."

"From the initial contact, they were professional, friendly, kind and such great ambassadors for your company. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and from the (beyond) high level of service that we received from them and their teams, Rydges World Square will definitely be our first choice when running our next event.

I have received many comments from our staff to say how approachable all staff were, how ‘awesomely excellent’ the food was and how it was by far the best venue they had been to in years.

During the morning tea break yesterday both Jack and Kan were downloading software to make a last minute video presentation work, this is just one example of what valued assets these 2 young men are to your company."
