Adelaide has won the hosting rights for the biennial Philanthropy Australia’s 2024 national conference, the first time it will be held outside Melbourne or Sydney.
Held at the Adelaide Convention Centre and taking place between August 5-7, the event is expected to attract more than 700 delegates, and speakers from around the world.
Business Events Adelaide’s CEO, Damien Kitto, said that this was further evidence that Adelaide was gaining momentum as a destination for business events.
He further acknowledged the support of the South Australian Government in securing this business event. “We are pleased that the Malinauskas Government recognises the value of business events to the state’s economic prosperity, not only in the short term but also in regard to their economic tail. We hope that the local philanthropy community can forge relationships that extend the value of this business event into the future.”
