The Conventions Adelaide Grant Awards Program is an initiative of the Adelaide Convention Bureau, supported by industry partner Adelaide Convention Centre, that is specifically designed to strengthen the destination’s ability to attract major international conventionsThe Program consists of grants up to $10,000 AUD ex GST  that are available to academic, research or professional staff working within South Australian Institutions which will be awarded in 2019.

“The process of applying for the grant allowed me to meet with the Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) staff and start developing strategies for bid preparation, submission and presentation. The subsequent collaboration with the ACB was very productive and the support my bidding team received was fantastic, ensuring that we submitted the best bid possible. So perhaps it is not a major surprise that our bid was successful while gaining more international reputation for biomedical research in South Australia and for Adelaide as the place for major conventions. Bidding for the Congress also enabled me to communicate and connect with medical physics researchers around the world, establishing new networks and contacts.”
