Adelaide Convention Centre is busy this week with its largest international event since Covid, the World Indigenous Peoples’ Conference on Education (WIPCE 2022).
The five-day conference started earlier this week and is still going on until Friday and is just one of 71 major conferences at the venue – a true record for the Centre.
Its hybrid format offered some delegates the possibility to attend from afar, but more than 2,000 people attended in person.
Rescheduled because of the pandemic from 2020, the event drew Indigenous representatives from across the globe to share successes and strategies for culturally grounded education.
“WIPCE 2022 is the perfect event to herald the return of major international conventions to Adelaide, and Adelaide Convention Centre is proud to be the host venue,” says Martin Radcliffe, General Manager, Adelaide Convention Centre. “Not only will WIPCE deliver significant benefit to our community and economy, it is also a major platform from which to showcase South Australia’s rich Indigenous heritage, culture and knowledge with a global audience of Indigenous citizens”.
