Stage 2 of the Adelaide Convention Centre Redevelopment includes:
- demolition of the existing plenary building constructed in the 1980s and its replacement with a more functional, highly flexible multi-purpose facility
- a new integrated meeting facility with plenary capacity of up to 3,500 seats or 3000 square metres of flat floor space. This venue can be subdivided and configured within minutes as pre-function space, ballroom, exhibition or plenary space – all of which realises the primary financial and economic benefits of the redevelopment
- a new auditorium within an iconic new building overlooking the Torrens Riverbank Precinct and hinged seating stored in the roof space of the new auditorium, which can be lowered in minutes to convert from exhibition space to lecture theatre style space.
- two, 18 metre diameter rotating seating drums in the auditorium that can be rapidly turned and reorientated to change from a large open plan theatre setting to separate, more intimate group seating arrangements for approximately 350 delegates.
