About Us

Business Events Adelaide  (previously the Adelaide Convention Bureau) is the peak independent body for South Australia’s business events.

Founded in 1974 we have a strong reputation as a successful economic driver for SA and we are supported in this endeavour by the State Government and the City of Adelaide.

Adelaide is a boutique city of concentrated economic potential.

Adelaide is internationally recognised for its innovation districts, strong research capabilities, and commercialisation successes, as well as its quality business event infrastructure, and our efficient services.

Our team works with interstate and international organisers seeking a dynamic business event destination. We harness “Team Adelaide” - our network of committed members and partners - to provide valuable guidance and facilitate bespoke, successful end-to-end business event results.  Our service is free of charge.
We are committed to successful business events and the economic growth they deliver.  

Members of Team Adelaide share a common determination to attract conventions, meetings, exhibitions, corporate incentives, and special events, to Adelaide and SA.

We are ambitious and collaborative. Our role is to bid for business events; win them for SA and then provide guidance to event organisers through every planning stage.

The result: a smooth-running, successful, and memorable business event that leaves behind valuable economic benefits such as knowledge transfer, research, and business alliances and partnerships.

In this busy and highly competitive world, Business Events Adelaide recognises organisers and delegates require tangible economic results from their time in SA, and we ensure they receive them – as well as a taste of a city and State they are sure to want to return to.


We are passionate advocates of the genuine, lasting, economic impact of successful business events – both for delegates and SA.

Take advantage of Business Event Adelaide’s depth of local knowledge, breadth of experience, and local contacts.
