ADELAIDE CONVENTION CENTRE
Ozwater’20 will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC). Adelaide prides itself on being ‘Australia’s Convention City’ and the ACC is regarded as one of the world’s most modern, flexible and technologically advanced meetings and events centres. A striking landmark on Adelaide’s Riverbank, the Centre is conveniently located at the heart of the City. To the North, the Centre overlooks the River Torrens and surrounding parklands, while to the South, the Centre sits on North Terrace, one of four major terraces that bind Adelaide’s City Centre.
The Adelaide Riverbank Precinct is a hive of activity and where the City’s cultural, sporting, education, medical, conference and entertainment zones merge, making it Australia’s best connected business events precinct. In addition to the Centre, Adelaide Oval and Adelaide SkyCity Casino, the Riverbank Precinct is home to the world-leading BioMed City—the largest life and health sciences cluster in the Southern Hemisphere—which is located right next door.
