Business Events Adelaide wins major international conference on renewable energy

The globally renowned biennial business event is expected to attract around 3,00 delegates to South Australia's capital city.

Business Events Adelaide has secured The International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC) for 2024, with the globally renowned biennial business event expected to attract around 3,00 delegates to South Australia’s capital.

The win follows a highly competitive global bid process, which was supported Federal and State Government and the private sector, with Tourism Australia’s Business Events Bid Fund Program contributing vital support to the bid.

Business Events Adelaide chief executive Damien Kitto said it was a brilliant statement of what Adelaide is capable of as a world-class business events destination and was pleased to have Australia’s Federal Climate and Energy Minister the Hon Chris Bowen MP make the announcement.

“Prestigious business events such as this deliver a strong economic tail for delegates as well as, very importantly, Adelaide and the State of South Australia,” Kitto said.

“It will strengthen Adelaide’s position on the world map as a business event destination not to be missed for any event organiser seeking a destination that puts an economic growth future front and centre for their future events.”

Adelaide has grown and developed strongly over the past few years and is now home to world renowned innovation precincts housing subject matter experts and researchers in Biomed, AI, Space, AgTech, and Defence to name just a few. This has led to far more global understanding of Adelaide as a successful business events destination where knowledge transfer, business and research collaborations and partnerships have become the norm.

Recently the State Government’s determination (and financial commitment) to being a global leader in hydrogen use development has been added to the already strong mix.

“This is being described as Adelaide’s time, and Business Events Adelaide has a vital role to play in the economy’s future,” Kitto said.
