Australia: Adelaide Convention Bureau Secures Two New Conferences for 2015
Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) has won two new conferences for Adelaide in 2015, The National Institute of Patent and Trademark Attorneys conference and the 2015 Australian Psychological Society’s College of Clinical Psychologists Conference, which will both be held at the Stamford Grand Adelaide Hotel.
The three-day National Institute of Patent and Trademark Attorneys conference, which will be held in April, is expected to attract 160 attorneys and add more than $561,996 to the state’s visitor economy.
“Whilst we picked up the event lead via our attendance at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) back in February this year, we’ve just received the green light that Adelaide’s pitch as the host city has been successful,” said ACB chief executive Damien Kitto.
“Our focus as a destination is to offer convention organizers something unique to South Australia. We purposely avoid any comparisons with elsewhere in the country given we have so much to offer that is unique to this state and that strategy has paid off yet again.
