ACC CELEBRATES MILESTONE
THE Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC) has set new records in the year since its $397 million expansion, having hosted 768 events and more than 330,000 visitors.
This includes 72 major national and international conferences, which generated 172,000 bed nights and delivered more than $155 million in economic benefit to South Australia.
“Over the past year we enjoyed an approximate 20% increase in the number of events hosted,” said ACC general manager Simon Burgess.
“The redevelopment has ensured South Australia’s continued competitiveness in the global business events industry by providing us with the capacity to host more prestigious, large scale events.”
