A world of experiences at your fingertips in Adelaide

Adelaide has had many nicknames over the years, from “the Athens of the south” (a nod to our Mediterranean climate and lifestyle) to “the 20-minute city” (because getting around just isn’t a problem). We’re also famous as Australia’s home to great food, the arts and new ideas.

What visitors most notice, however, are the sense of light and space, and the range of things you can do in a day without feeling rushed. That’s what makes Adelaide a great convention city, and why both Lonely Planet and The New York Times rated it in the top 10 places to see in 2015.

It’s an easy city to enjoy, whether you prefer 5-star dining, quirky laneway bars, exploring the bustling Central Market, cycling in the parklands, strolling in the picturesque Adelaide Hills or relaxing on a stretch of white sandy beach just 20 minutes (that figure again) from the CBD.

Adelaide Convention Centre

Close proximity to the medical hub, entertainment, cultural and sport precinct, the Centre is a short walk to international and boutique hotels and accommodation. Public transport, the Adelaide Railway Station and a taxi ramp are on our doorstep.
