ACA 2024 will be held in Adelaide, South Australia’s coastal capital, from September 4-6.
CEO Jill Abel said South Australia’s appeal as a cruise ship destination continues to grow, with 103 ship visits in the 2022-23 season.
‘The state’s vast offering of shore excursions — wellness and walking tours, wildlife viewing, indigenous experiences and, of course, the incredible wealth of food and beverage experiences — makes for a highly immersive cruise itinerary,’ Abel said.
‘After a hugely successful restart to cruising in South Australia last year and a bumper season, it is wonderful to get this big show of support in our state,’ South Australian Tourism Minister Zoe Bettison said.
‘With a record-breaking 124 ships set to visit our shores in the coming season, it is clear South Australia is a destination of choice for cruise lines —and now, too, for the industry’s annual conference,’ Bettison said.
