Adelaide Convention Centre

North Terrace, Adelaide SA 5000
The Adelaide Convention Centre is conveniently located in the heart of the city centre and nestled within the beauty of the Riverbank Precinct, surrounded by parklands and the River Torrens.

It is within close proximity to the medical hub, entertainment, cultural and sport precincts and is just a short walk to international and boutique hotels and accommodation. Public transport, the Adelaide Railway Station and a taxi ramp are at its doorstep.

The international airport is just seven kilometres from the Centre, making it a quick and economic taxi ride.

About Adelaide:

Adelaide is a picturesque coastal city that's easy to get to, easy to get around, easy on the pocket, and 'green'. Adelaide is widely recognised as the 20-minute city. The ease of access and stress free travel is acknowledged by organisers and delegates alike. Where else can you arrive at the airport, be checked into your 5-star hotel within twenty minutes and then walk to the multiple award-winning convention centre adjacent for your conference welcome function?

Innovation and collaboration are the hallmarks of doing business in Adelaide. The economy is strong and the future is bright in terms of resources, defence, medicine, science, technology and more. Adelaide is a welcoming city, and a great place to do business. The Economist rates Adelaide as the number one business travel destination in Australia and number three in the world. Adelaide is also ranked amongst the top ten most liveable cities in the world, and it's not hard to see why.

Adelaide is also a 'green' conference destination. The city is serviced by electric trams and the world's first solar-powered bus. South Australia is a leader in renewable energy and was the first State in the nation to proclaim climate change laws. Adelaide is ideally positioned to host events. Many of Adelaide's tourist facilities are located within walking distance of the CBD and within a few hours, delegates can be anywhere in Australia to enjoy pre- and post- convention holidays.
