Conference venue

The conference will be hosted by the University of South Australia at the National Wine Centre of Australia.

Situated on the edge of Adelaide's stunning Botanic Gardens, the National Wine Centre is a combination of eye-catching architecture (it is shaped like a wine barrel) and smooth functionality.

The Wine Centre provides a superb alternative to a standard venue for any event and is an exciting tourism venue which showcases the entire Australian wine industry. It features outdoor terrace areas with views of the Centre's vineyard and Botanic Gardens. Conference facilities include state-of-the-art technical and audiovisual equipment and pillarless function spaces.

Some images of the Wine Centre are displayed at the right of this page.
