Adelaide Convention Centre Redevelopment (Stages 1 & 2) (SA)
Owned by Adelaide Venue Management and nominated by Lendlease
Australia’s first purpose‐built convention centre has been reborn as the nation’s newest, with the completion of the Adelaide Convention Centre two-phase redevelopment. This expansion positions the venue as the nation’s most modern, flexible and technologically advanced meetings and events venue.
The A.C.C redevelopment has transformed Adelaide’s skyline with two new buildings and boosted the Centre’s overall footprint to 20,000 square metres of multi-purpose space. The expansion shines a spotlight on not only the Centre’s incredible innovation and market-leading capabilities, but also engenders a tremendous sense of South Australian pride.
