Located at the heart of a city made for events, in a state known for sparking ideas, Adelaide Convention Centre creates events that live on in the hearts and minds of our guests. With a famed menu you’d expect in award-winning restaurants, technological capabilities to a world standard, and globally recognised sustainability credentials, we pride ourselves on delivering events that transcend the standard event experience.

Australia’s first

As Australia’s first purpose-built convention centre, our history has been defined by continuous innovation. Today, following a $397M redevelopment, our footprint spans 20,000 square metres of flexible event space across three seamlessly integrated buildings. We are globally renowned for our vibrance, versatility and technologically advanced spaces.

Our positioning at the heart of Adelaide’s riverbank precinct not only delivers incredible views and a terrific sense of destination for our guests, but great convenience – we’re just 15-minutes from Adelaide Airport, a short stroll from more than 4,000 hotel rooms, and located where our city’s education, medical, cultural, sporting, innovation and entertainment zones merge, making Adelaide, Australia’s convention city.

Each year we play host to more than 700 events, providing a platform for sparking connections, knowledge transfer and celebration. We’re a place where big things happen, and have welcomed, and wonderfully presented, the biggest, boldest events, exhibitions, conferences, festivals, and shows, to create significant benefit and lasting legacies for South Australia’s industries, businesses and communities.

Trust our team to be your backstage partners to bring your vision to life, and create memorable experiences for you and your guests.

Connection to Country

The Kaurna people are the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains on which Adelaide / Tarntanya and Adelaide Convention Centre are located.

From our position on the banks of KarrawIrra Pari (River Torrens), we encourage you to explore the city to see and experience the world’s oldest continuous culture and learn about the Kaurna story.

Truly Sustainable

At Adelaide Convention Centre, sustainability is embedded in everything we do, from our food and design, our practices and people.┬áThe world’s first convention centre to achieve EarthCheck’s coveted Master certification, we’re obsessed with energy and water conservation, responsible sourcing, food redistribution and minimising waste to landfill, and work closely with our clients on sustainable event management to help reduce their event footprint for a better tomorrow.
