Meetings Industry Conference Australia and New Zealand - Adelaide 2015
Now is the Time!
The Association conference will be held in Adelaide from the 29th of November to the 1st of December 2015. If you are interested in speaking at the conference or conducting a workshop, please email a 200 word outline of your proposed presentation to email@example.com
Adelaide is a city that offers the physical and emotional space to breathe. There is a sense of freedom here - of expression, of movement, of thought. With a diverse and eclectic array of accessible experiences, it's a city that allows time for immersion, paired with a sense of space and freedom that actively encourages true indulgence. Physically gifted with luxuriously wide boulevards, great swathes of parks and gardens, enormous skies and wide-open spaces, Adelaide is also a city of contrasts.
Elegant sandstone architecture stands opposite edgy bohemian laneways and alleys. Highly awarded fine dining restaurants exist alongside pop up bars and food trucks. Sophisticated cultural events run in unison with the delightful madness of performing arts and music festivals.
But best of all, Adelaide is a city that lives well beyond its conveniently designed square mile epicentre, flowing seamlessly into world-famous wine and food regions such as Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, coastal escapes in the Fleurieu or Yorke Peninsula, or the timeless beauty that is Kangaroo Island.
