each building for smaller events.
The ACC’s new East building is, without
question, the pinnacle of innovation and
flexibility. Launched in August 2017, it
features a state-of-the-art Plenary Hall with
tiered seating for more than 3000 people.

The upcoming MEA National Conference
will make full use of the new East Building,
along with the ACC’s Central Building.
A taste of South Australia
There’s no disputing that South Australia is
the country’s food and wine capital. The
Adelaide Convention Centre prides itself on
delivering visitors a taste of South Australia,
with 97 percent of produce used at the
centre sourced locally.
Visitors will find stories of South Australia on
every plate. Think luscious oysters from the
state’s West Coast, wild Kingfish from the Gulf,
and premium lamb from the Murraylands.
For wine lovers, Adelaide’s positioning just a stone’s throw from the world-famous wine
districts of McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley provides a plethora
of exciting options for pre- and post-touring.
A new highlight worthy of mention is the d’Arenburg Cube, one of the world’s most unique
cellar door experiences, which opened in December 2017.

Precinct, a series of new growth industries and pipeline of additional hotels and development, has
injected a fresh energy into the city and seen it emerge as a leading destination for business
The Riverbank Precinct sits at the heart of Adelaide’s CBD and is in the midst of a $5 billion
rejuvenation. As visitors will see, to the west of the precinct (right on the convention centre’s
doorstep) lies BioMed City, the largest health and life sciences precinct in the Southern
The medical precinct is already home to the South Australian Health and Medical Research
Institute (SAHMRI), the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and the University of Adelaide Health &
Medical Sciences Building.
Looking ahead, the UniSA Health Innovation Building is set to open this year, with SAMHRI 2,
featuring the only Proton Therapy unit in the southern hemisphere, to follow in 2020.
The riverbank’s transformation has also incorporated numerous entertainment and cultural
developments: the Adelaide Oval ($535m), the Festival Centre ($90m) and the Adelaide Casino
($330m), which is currently in progress. A $610m redevelopment of Festival Plaza, incorporating
revitalised arts, culture, leisure, office and retail spaces, is also underway and due for completion
in 2020. m
