ADE­LAIDE has se­cured the host­ing rights to the World Congress on Med­i­cal Physics and Biomed­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing for 2024, an event that’s set to at­tract more than 2,500 del­e­gates and in­ject $17.6 mil­lion into the econ­omy.

Min­is­ter for Trade, Tourism and In­vest­ment David Ridg­way said a key part of grow­ing the lo­cal tourism sec­tor was at­tract­ing more events and con­ven­tions to the city.

“We’re boost­ing the Events Bid Fund to $40 mil­lion over the next four years which includes $5 mil­lion to at­tract more con­ven­tions,” he said, adding that the next op­por­tu­nity to max­imise the event would be to “dis­perse del­e­gates into our re­gions be­fore and af­ter the con­fer­ence”.

The event will de­liver 18,700 bed nights for the city’s ho­tels.
