The multiple award winning Adelaide Convention Centre enjoys a global reputation for excellence and is consistently ranked among the world's top convention centres.
Our "Gold Service - Green Attitude" is founded on superior product, meticulous staff dedication, world-class facilities and innovative environmental solutions. Our facilities include a Plenary Hall seating up to 3500 delegates and 10,400 m2 of pillarless exhibition space. The Plenary Hall's tiered seating sections can be raised or lowered individually to create either theatre style seating, or a flat floor for convention purposes. The Centre offers 14 serviced meeting rooms which can accommodate between 30 and 200 people and are ideal for break-out sessions, workshops, intimate luncheons, dinners or cocktail gatherings.
Adelaide is widely recognised as the 20-minute city: easy to reach, easy to get around, easy on the pocket, and with a well-deserved "green" reputation. Organisers and delegates appreciate the value of an easily accessible and stress-free city. Where else can you land at the international airport, check into your 5-star hotel and then walk to the adjacent multiple award-winning convention centre all within 30 minutes? The Economist rates Adelaide as the number one business travel destination in Australia, number three in the world and amongst the top ten most live-able cities in the world.
Our stunning building is situated in the city centre, on the banks of the River Torrens, with dramatic views of parklands, the redeveloped Adelaide Oval and the medical research precinct.
The Adelaide Convention Centre is consistently acknowledged for the brilliant quality and delivery of its food and beverage product. Our menus have been created with passion and flair by our internationally trained and experienced chefs. They showcase the freshest local and regional produce, creating a modern Australian cuisine that also incorporates the flavours of the East. The wine list reflects the world-wide renowned wine heritage of South Australia, with selections from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and the Adelaide Hills. Other Australian and imported wines are available on request. Your success is our success. We will partner with you to ensure your event is memorable.

"In recent times, we have been internationally acknowledged as a leader in innovation, sustainability and corporate social responsibility, achieving accolades bestowed by industry peers in Australia and overseas.
