The Hilton Hotel, Sydney is the location for the ICITA conference.
ICITA used the Hilton Hotel Sydney since 2011 and the venue is superbly matched with our needs, that's why
we've chosen it again.
Delegates, both international
and local were easily able to attend at the hotel and find plenty of suitable accommodation nearby.
Conference and entertainment facilities at the Hilton are excellent. ICITA takes place
Hilton, which is provided with comfortable seating, room for banners and posters, good audio-visual aids, Internet provisions
and air conditioning.
Lunches and morning teas are provided by the Hilton, and not just plain sandwiches either! The Hilton lunches are extensive
and delightful, offering a full range of seafood, salads, vegetarian and meat dishes, along with juice, tea, coffee and drinks.

The Marble Bar is our choice for the first night reception at ICITA. It is a legendary place. This hisorical location (under the Hilton) one of Sydney's oldest and grandest bars. The Marble is elegant and sophisticated but not noisy or brash. It is decorated with 19th century paintings and expansive Belgian marble. On the reception night, ICITA guests are provided with an extensive range of foods and refreshments, to suit all tastes and national preferences. For direct information, link to: |The Marble Bar.
Flanked by the iconic Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, the harbour is undoubtedly the heart of Sydney. Visitors are able to walk the waterfront along Circular Quay with ease, pausing to try the numerous bars, cafes and restaurants on offer.
A five-minute walk from the city centre is the vibrant waterside precinct of Darling Harbour with Cockle Bay and King Street Wharf home to some of the best bars and restaurants in the city. Darling Harbour is also a great place to see some of Australia's wildlife up close, with SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Wildlife World.
For those interested in the historical and cultural aspects of the city centre, a stroll through The Rocks will be most illuminating. Home to some of the oldest settlements in Sydney, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art, regular markets, and a host of guided tours, The Rocks should satisfy all culture-buffs.
If you seek action and adventure, why not take a trip to the top of the Harbour Bridge? The dizzying climb is well worth the effort, offering panoramic views of the city as well as a sense of achievement. Or, if you are feeling more adventurous, you can take a helicopter flight over the city and its surrounds. Sydney HeliTours offer a number of unique airborne tours, including the Coast Rush Tour taking in some of the famous beachside suburbs, including Coogee.
The Hot Spots
The most famous beach in Sydney (arguably the whole of Australia), is just 20 minutes to the east of the city. With golden sands, a bustling promenade and high-energy residents, Bondi Beach is bound to leave a lasting impression.
Fashion boutiques, trendy cafes, art galleries and terrace houses line the streets in the suburb of Paddington. Home to some of Australia's best fashion labels, as well as some of the best new emerging labels, Paddington is undeniably chic,
A visit to the relaxed beachside suburb or Manly via a ferry from Circular Quay should be on every visitor's "To Do" list. A quick trip on a ferry will allow visitors to experience casual dining direct from the beach or the refined restaurants and wine bars. It's no wonder many chose to take a day to experience all that Manly has to offer.
The Day Trips
Situated in the middle of a national park, and only two hours from Sydney by train, are the Blue Mountains. Offering some of the best bush-tracks, from ambling beginner trail to intense hiking and camping experiences, it is home to unique elements of Australia's natural and indigenous culture. The Blue Mountains also offer excellent restaurants and art galleries showcasing local artists.
One of Australia's premier wine regions, the Hunter Valley, lies just two hours north of Sydney. Offering over 150 wineries, and boasting some of Australia's best produce, many visitors choose to spend an entire weekend tasting the delicacies on offer.
From all of us here at the International Conference on Information Technology and Applications, we hope your enjoy the conference and your trip to Sydney. Remember to check out Sydney.com for more information about Sydney.
