Following last year’s important events, Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC) is off to a great start for 2018 with three national events: the Australian Tourism Exchange (15-19 April); the Accelerate 2018 MEA National Conference (6-8 May); and the AuSAE Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2018 – Ignite your Thinking (28-30 May).
Alongside the confirmation of these events came the announcement of two promotions within the ACC.
After serving for the past five years as Director – Convention and Exhibition Sales at the ACC, Simon Burgess has now been appointed General Manager of the Centre. In his new position, Simon will be responsible for overseeing the ACC’s business development activities as well as the venue’s day-to-day operations. He says: “We have a great legacy in terms of our new facilities from our recent expansion; this combined with the continued rejuvenation of the Adelaide Riverbank means the city is well-poised to be an even more attractive business events destination moving forward.”
In addition to Simon’s promotion, Erryn Dryga has been promoted from a business development position to Senior Sales Manager – Conventions and Exhibitions. Having played a critical role in developing key industry relationships, Erryn will be responsible for driving Asia Pacific and other international conference business in to Adelaide, as well as leading the company’s convention and exhibition sales team.
