1700 – 1900 – Hall H, Adelaide Convention Centre

The Welcome Reception is a chance to catch up with other delegates, visit the various exhibition stands, and enjoy a drink and some fabulous food. In 2024, you’ll have a chance to enjoy A Taste of South Australia.
From freshly shucked Coffin Bays oysters or fish and chips featuring King George Whiting, the Seafood Market is going to be popular. The Char Grill will be the place to visit for the flavours of the outback, while the Pie Cart has that must try late night Adelaide institution – the Pie Floater! And for those needing something sweet, there’s a build your own ice cream cart featuring some unique SA flavours. A special feature is the Artisan Marketplace – with wineries, distillers, craft, and speciality food makers offering you a chance to try their products and order some to take home – a perfect way to share your visit to South Australia.
