The Venue

22AWC will be held at the iconic Adelaide Oval situated right in the heart of the city, framed by the River Torrens and surrounding precinct.

As one of South Australia’s most impressive venues – boasting picturesque views of the hallowed turf, the city, St Peter’s Cathedral and more – it provides a unique setting to entertain clients, celebrate milestones or network in style.
