Sydney's new $1.5 billion convention centre has been opened by Premier Mike Baird and already has about 500 events lined up for the next ten years.

The massive steel and concrete Darling Harbour construction was declared open for business on Sunday and Aussie country singer Keith Urban will be the fist to test out the acoustics with an almost-sold out concert scheduled for Wednesday night.

"The mega space will employ 300 full-time staff and 1500 casual workers and is expected to pump at least $5 billion into the NSW economy over the next 25 years," Mr Baird said while opening the ICC on Sunday.
