windows and lots of parking
The AEEC recently underwent a $50 million redevelopment adding additional exhibition areas as well as upgraded meeting and function spaces. As a result, the AEEC now incorporates the newly completed Goyder Pavilion, Duncan Gallery and related plazas as well as the existing Ridley Centre, Jubilee and Wayville Pavilions.
It also boasts strong environmental credentials and is completely self-sufficient in water and electricity.
“Now the third largest exhibition space in Australia, the AEEC can offer 26,300 square-metres of integrated air-conditioned space, 16,000 square-metres of landscaped outdoor event space, including a 200-person amphitheatre, sustainable planter beds, grassed areas and feature lighting,” said AEEC general manager, Grant Piggott.
“In a nutshell, it will bring together all services required to run a successful event, meeting, catered function, conference or exhibition,”
