Adelaide Convention Centre marks completion of its $397 million redevelopment and subsequent opening of its new East Building with a free public tour series, September 2-6

ADELAIDE, Australia (9 August, 2017) –The Adelaide Convention Centre’s $397 million redevelopment programme will culminate later this month, with the opening of the venue’s all-new East Building on 30 August.

The project has transformed not only the Adelaide Convention Centre but also the city’s skyline, with the addition of two new buildings: the West Building, which borders Montefiore Road and was opened in 2015, and the new East Building, opening later this month.

To mark the opening of the new East Building, the Convention Centre will host a series of free public tours early next month (September 2017). Tours will last approximately 30 – 40 minutes in duration, and provide the opportunity to inspect the newly expanded Centre and learn about its striking design features and architectural story.

The tours will depart from outside the R Bar Regattas on the Adelaide Riverbank Promenade, with participants invited to enjoy a complimentary tea, coffee or soft drink at R Bar upon the tour’s completion.

Saturday, 2 September       11.30am and 2.00pm
