The Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) has won 75 business events, with an economic benefit of $136 million, and attracting 28,500 delegates to South Australia by the end of 2019.
The events include one of Adelaide’s largest international events, World Routes, a global meeting for airlines, airports, destinations and other aviation stakeholders. It is the first time this event has been held in Australasia, attracting the most senior decision makers of the world’s leading aviation organisations.
“It is therefore an increasingly highly competitive marketplace in which to win such business for SA. Bringing these 75 events over four months to the State, is testament to the ACB’s strategy,” said ACB chief executive Damien Kitto.
“We are particularly proud to be the first Australasian host of the prestigious World Routes. The benefit and exposure for SA of winning this globally significant business event cannot be underestimated.”
Of the 75 business events won 27 are related to medical health including Human Proteome Organisation World Congress 2019; 2019 Australian Physiotherapy Association Conference; Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Annual Scientific Convention; Clinical Oncology of Australia’s Scientific Meeting; and Leading Age Services Australia National Congress 2019.
