ACC supports new State Brand
For more than 25 years, the Adelaide Convention Centre has been selling South Australia to the world and introducing new people to our wonderful State.
We believe the brand, which makes the State’s location more easily identifiable, will support our efforts to attract new business from overseas.
It clearly communicates that South Australia is open for business and this is a message we think is important to our prospective clients.
SURPRISING SOUTH AUSTRALIA
- Wine State: South Australia is a well known food and wine centre
- Nature: the perfect destination to explore natural habitats and wildlife
- Water Views: the beaches stretch for miles and the Murray River creates a tourist hotspot throughout the state
- Outback: in South Australia the outback is right out back
You couldn't ask for greater diversity. Catch a fish or catch a wave, watch a game, or watch an opera, bike it, hike it or take to the hills and lose yourself in the beauty that is South Australia.
You’ll be surprised at how much there is to see and do. Within 20 minutes’ drive of Adelaide, you can be barefoot on a beach or winding your way along a narrow road in the hills.
Venture a little further and you’re boating on the River Murray, sampling wine with a vigneron, fraternising with wildlife, or heading into the ancient Outback.
This is a place less travelled, less spoilt and very special.

AFAANZ 2009 Annual Conference
An understanding of the client, the project managers, the conference itself and the delegate; the realisation that one size does not fit all; knowledge of the venue; a smile, a laugh or a cup of coffee; the words - no problem, we can do that, or better yet, already done! All these things seem minute but it's what makes our experience at a venue quite simply, good or bad. The ACC gets it and delivers. Overall a very positive experience.
