Adelaide Bids For Major Astronautical Congress

27th January 2021

After a successful 2017 International Astronautical Congress (IAC), Adelaide has now announced its bid to host the 2024 IAC. The event fits the destination perfectly as Adelaide is the national centre of Australia’s space sector, being home to the Australian Space Agency, high calibre research and development and space company growth.

Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) Chief Executive Damien Kitto says: “The ACB is focussed on State economic growth potential from business events, as much as on the short-term economic boost during an event, and we know this dual focus is also a factor for IAC organisers. So we are extremely pleased with our Premier’s announcement that we are the first city to bid for the 2024 event and the ACB has already advanced bid preparations and planning.”
