Our clients have put us among the global finalists for the prestigious, internationally recognised International Association of Convention Centre (AIPC) Apex Award.

The Adelaide Convention Centre is among 15 finalists from across the world vying for the Best Client Rated Convention Centre Award, with the winner to be announced at the 2016 AIPC Annual Conference in Nantes, France in early July.

“The position of Finalist for the AIPC Apex Award is a notable achievement that places a centre amongst very good company worldwide”, said AIPC President Geoff Donaghy.

“It means that a centre has secured sufficient support from its clients to be able to proceed in the competition, which is typically a testament to the way in which they are regarded in the market.

“In total, on behalf of AIPC, Ipsos has surveyed over 1650 client references put forward by participating centres – a clear indication of the effort made to get the broadest possible assessment of client evaluations for this competition.”

Adelaide Convention Centre Chief Executive Alec Gilbert said “We’re delighted to have been recognised among the world’s best for the Apex Award.

“Being a finalist is particularly pleasing because it’s our clients who’ve put us in this position, and it’s their opinion that matters the most to the Centre,” said Mr Gilbert.

AIPC is an association comprising over 178 international convention centres in 57 countries world-wide.
