Your Host City – Adelaide
Adelaide is a picturesque coastal city that's easy to get to, easy to get around, easy on the pocket, and ‘green’. If Adelaide were a dining table, it would be overflowing with the riches and magnificent offerings from the southern state of South Australia.
Cutting a fine swathe down the centre of town is Rundle Mall. Lined with over 800 cool and enticing shops, it’s a favourite destination in its own right for locals and visitors alike. And with over 700 restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from, no wonder Adelaide is known for relaxing, taking in the finer things of life and living at a pace where you can savour every minute and just simply enjoy it.
Adelaide now also offers visitors complimentary wifi coverage in outdoors areas, such as community areas, cafes and restaurant precincts, across the CBD and North Adelaide. The complimentary wifi is the largest and most performing city wifi network in Australia and is on par with the best in the world in terms of coverage and service offering.

It’s not uncommon to hold a wine glass in Adelaide - the city is arguably the epicentre of Australia’s world-class wine industry. With McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, the Barossa and Clare Valleys all within a couple of hours of the city, the region proudly produces and delivers some of Australia’s best and universally acclaimed vintages to the world.
Many of Adelaide's tourist facilities are located within walking distance of the CBD and within a few hours, delegates can be anywhere in Australia to enjoy pre- and post-congress holidays.
