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.”

Pic­tured is the Land Forces 2018 Ex­po­si­tion, held last month, which was the largest sin­gle ser­vice land-de­fence in­dus­try event in the Indo-Asi­aPa­cific re­gion, gen­er­at­ing over $34 mil­lion in eco­nomic ben­e­fit.
