Destination
Adelaide is a picturesque coastal city that's easy to get to, easy to get around, easy on the pocket, and ‘green’.

Adelaide is widely recognised as the 20-minute city. The ease of access and stress free travel is acknowledged by organisers and delegates alike. Where else can you arrive at the international airport, be checked into your 5-star hotel within twenty minutes and then walk to the multiple award-winning convention centre adjacent for your conference welcome function?

The Economist rates Adelaide as the number one business travel destination in Australia and number three in the world. Adelaide is also ranked amongst the top ten most live-able cities in the world, and it’s not hard to see why.

Adelaide is also a ‘green’ conference destination. The city is serviced by electric trams and the world's first solar-powered bus. South Australia is a leader in renewable energy and was the first State in the nation to proclaim climate change laws.

Many of Adelaide's tourist facilities are located within walking distance of the CBD and within a few hours, delegates can be anywhere in Australia to enjoy pre- and post-convention holidays.
