At Adelaide Convention Centre, the health and wellbeing of our guests and team members remains our top priority. We are continuing to actively monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 and are following the latest advice and guidelines issued by SA Health, the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organisation.

In accordance with SA Health directives, travellers who have arrived / returned from, or visited, Regional Victoria are not currently permitted to enter the Adelaide Convention Centre until 14 days after their arrival into South Australia (SA). Additionally, South Australian residents returning from the Waverley Council area in NSW or another declared COVID hotspot listed here are also prohibited entry to the Adelaide Convention Centre until 14 days after their arrival into SA.

For those planning future travel, please note that Level 6 restrictions are currently in place for the following regions, preventing entry into South Australia until further notice (with the exception of essential travellers or permitted arrivals, who are required to self-quarantine for 14 days).

All other visitors attending an event at the Adelaide Convention Centre are required to please ‘check in’ to the venue upon arrival using the South Australian Government’s official COVID SAfe Check-In process. This involves scanning a QR code upon arrival. Guests will be able to find these QR codes displayed at each building entrance, and asked to provide proof of check-in (ie show the ‘green tick’ on their phone) prior to entering the Centre. For those without a mobile device, our staff will direct you to the manual check-in form to complete. Further information can be found online here.

To provide confidence and ensure a safe environment for visiting delegates, clients and staff, we have a comprehensive COVID Management Plan in place, which has been approved by the South Australian Government and includes the dedicated measures below.  Please note, as part of our practices to provide a safe and secure environment, access to the Adelaide Convention Centre at this time is for registered event attendees only. There is no public thoroughfare to access the Adelaide Riverbank Promenade.



If you are attending an upcoming event at the Centre we ask that you please play your part and help us be COVID Safe by practising proper hand hygiene; adhering to physical distancing by maintaining 1.5m from others at all times; and staying home if you feel unwell.

If you are an Event Organiser and have questions regarding a scheduled event at the Centre, please continue to liaise with your Event Planning Manager.

If you are attending an upcoming event at the Adelaide Convention Centre and have any questions, please contact the Event Organiser directly.
