Venue & Location
The ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING 2018 Conference will be held at the Adelaide Convention & Centre, Adelaide, Australia.
Adelaide Convention Centre
North Terrace, Adelaide,
South Australia 5000,
The Adelaide Convention Centre is conveniently located in the heart of the city centre and nestled within the beauty of the Riverbank Precinct, surrounded by parklands and the River Torrens.
Close proximity to the medical hub, entertainment, cultural and sport precinct, the Centre is a short walk to international and boutique hotels and accommodation. Public transport, the Adelaide Railway Station and a taxi ramp are on our doorstep.
The international airport is just seven kilometres from the Centre, making a quick and economic taxi ride.
If you are driving to the Centre, we offer two undercover car parking options with the North Terrace and the Riverbank car parks. Both are located directly under the Centre and are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Clearance is 2.0 metres and automated payment stations accept credit/debit cards (1.5% surcharge for Visa, Mastercard, Diners and Amex).
Both car parks are fitted with video surveillance camera systems and security patrols these areas.
Note: Due to construction work, availability and accessibility of car parks is currently limited and inconsistent depending on level of activity at the Centre. Please allow enough time to find alternative car parking should the Centre’s car parks be full.
Access and facilities for people with disabilities are provided throughout the Centre. All car parks and buildings are wheelchair accessible.
Note: Due to the redevelopment construction works, some parts of the carparks are harder to access at the moment – we recommend using the North Terrace carpark rather than Riverbank, as North Terrace has disability parking close to the exit and the lifts. Maximum height is 2.0 meters.
