AT THE ADELAIDE CONVENTION CENTRE:
An opportunity to see how a regional capital is positioning itself to take on the world in the business events industry, opening the second stage of its five year expansion programme at the end of August 2017 with a highly flexible facility capable of being divided into three stand-alone, but physically linked, centres. Situated on the banks of the picturesque River Torrens immediately adjacent to the Central Business District and situated immediately adjacent to the new Bio Medical Precinct, set to be the largest medical research hub in the southern hemisphere, the City is also positioning itself as the wine capital of Australia!

THE CAIRNS CONVENTION CENTRE Study Tour will highlight:
The flexibility of a boutique convention centre that has the agility and ability to juggle competing event and business interests with community service requirements to become an integral part of a leisure destination by diversifying the visitor economy and driving incremental business over and above the leisure market. CCC’s international research and marketing has ensured the convention mix sits at around 50/50 international to national business in the face of an underfunded convention bureau when compared with national - and particularly international competitors. A dual role of convention centre and convention bureau has resulted in seventy-five percent of international delegates visiting Cairns bringing accompanying partners and families, and they stay four days pre and post for touring, making the centre an integral part of the economic fabric of the city.
