The Communications and Marketing Unit manages a number of events, of all types and sizes. These include Open Day, campus open days, public lectures, alumni awards, corporate dinners and VC events.
The reason we choose to run events is to strengthen our relationships with stakeholders and raise awareness of our facilities, teaching, research, community outreach and industry engagement initiatives.
We know all events are unique. However, to help you run your event smoothly, we have put together an events toolkit that outlines the main phases of an event from concept to review. We have also included a list of suppliers for catering, AV, infrastructure and more.
For information and guidance on external venue options please visit the Adelaide Convention Bureau’s Adelaide Planner’s Guide website.
