After an eight-year absence, the Professional Conference Organisers Association (PCOA) annual conference is returning to Adelaide in 2023.
Running from December 10-12, the city will host 450 business event experts who manage events that attract more than 160,000 business event attendees each year.
PCOA Council Member, Karen Sainsbury, said it is a great way to showcase Adelaide.
“As someone who lived and worked in the city some years ago, I am delighted to be bringing PCOA 2023 to Adelaide,” Ms Sainsbury said.
“Adelaide has grown to encompass all the big city infrastructure expected of a business event destination but has lost none of its boutique appeal.”
As part of this PCOA experience, Business Events Adelaide has organised post-event familiarisations, including visits to new or redeveloped venues, innovation districts, and regions including the Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley.
Business Events Adelaide CEO, Damien Kitto, said the organisation looks forward to welcoming PCOA delegates.
“We promise a memorable experience that highlights the evolution of the business events sector in our State and demonstrating to these influencing buyers the environmental, cultural and economic advantages of choosing Adelaide for their future business events.”
