ACTA Adelaide : ACTA Adelaide
www.acta.com.au 3 With world-class facilities, easy access, a commitment to sustainability and value for money, it's easy to see why Adelaide is Australia's convention city. Unlike other cities where big events tend to get lost, in Adelaide they shine taking over the city streets with guests strolling between the convention venue, luxury hotels, restaurants, cafes, shopping strips and art galleries. Add its mild climate, safe surrounds and quality cost-effective venue and accommodation options and it's easy to see why business travellers refer to Adelaide as "the perfect meetings city". Adelaide is famous for its ability to deliver grand events, meetings and dinners with a personal touch, and is proud to offer a number of outstanding and unique venues. Whether it is an awards dinner, conference or cocktail reception, you can select a premium venue that suits your group's requirements. In a state famous for its food and wine, there is an array of diverse and mouth watering catering options guaranteed to provide a memorable experience for all guests. Further underlining Adelaide's claim as 'Australia's convention city' is The Economist magazine's recent ranking of the city as the 3rd best destination in the world (and the 1st in Australia) for business travel (The Economist, July 2009). The city is also perfectly placed as a 'hub' for those seeking that authentic 'Australian' experience. World famous wine regions such as the Barossa Valley are just a stone's throw from Adelaide, where, in the backyard of brands such as Penfolds and Wolf Blass, groups can enjoy fabulous hands-on experiences. On the city's doorstep, guests also have endless options to begin a truly Australian outback experience. Whether by 4WD, horseback or luxury train, travellers can take an interactive journey across ancient landscapes colourful by day and starlit by night. For unique and accessible wildlife the beautifully preserved Kangaroo Island plays host to platypuses, sea lions and all manner of Fauna, whilst Port Lincoln on the state's Eyre Peninsula is home to Great White sharks and southern blue fin tuna. For discerning groups, seeking more unique personalised experiences, Adelaide, South Australia is sure to delight and inspire.
