The Adelaide Convention Centre celebrates 30 years in business in 2017 with the completion of its two-phase, $397 million redevelopment and opening of its all-new East Building.
Another highlight of the centre's redevelopment is the installation of Skyway, an aerial walkway which connects the venue's three buildings at an upper level, providing panoramic views of the city's Riverbank precinct.
Alec Gilbert, chief executive of the Adelaide Convention Centre said the operational brief for the redevelopment was very precise - "to create a new breed of convention centre in terms of flexibility and innovation".
"Not only does it pay homage to South Australia's iconic landscape, but it brings together rotating drums, hinged seating and operable walls in one building for the first time, making it one of the most flexible convention centres in the world."
Adelaide's transformation includes the development of BioMed City - the largest health and life sciences cluster in the southern hemisphere.
