Alice Springs Convention Centre set to attract MICE tourists during upcoming Parrtjima Festival

 Friday, March 23, 2018 


Alice Springs Convention CentreThe state-of-the-art 1,200-seat Alice Springs Convention Centre is the largest conference facility and is complemented by a range of other smaller hotel and resort venues within close proximity of the compact CBD. The city-wide accommodation portfolio offers more than 1,500 rooms appropriate for business events.



Located adjacent to the Centre, the Crowne Plaza Alice Springs Lasseters is currently undergoing an A$5 million refurbishment, with all 205 hotel guest rooms to be renovated and refreshed. The program is due for completion by 15 March 2018. The hotel nestles in a beautiful location at the foot of the MacDonnell Ranges and overlooks the Alice Springs Golf Club, Australia’s only desert region golf course.



The majestic MacDonnell Ranges will once again serve as the stunning backdrop for the free outdoor festival, Parrtjima – A Festival in Light, when it returns to Alice Springs again in 2018. To be held from 28 September to 7 October, the festival celebrates Central Australian Aboriginal art and culture. Encompassing performance, as well as light and sound installations, the festival provides a fascinating off-site venue and activity option for business events being staged in Alice Springs later in the year.



The pioneering history of Alice Springs has created a destination where a resourceful spirit prevails. Facilities such as Desert Knowledge Australia showcase state-of-the-art solar energy research and development projects for which the NT has become justifiably renowned. Technical tours of the facility can provide conference delegates with invaluable renewable energy sector insights.



Community organisations such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air also provide scope for educational off-site options for business events, enabling memorable interactions with Territorians. With the NT an acknowledged leader in remote and Indigenous health, the NGO dialysis centre known locally as ‘The Purple House’ shows how innovation and creative thinking can surmount challenges of distance and health management, in a culturally-sensitive and effective manner. Visits to all these facilities can be arranged for conferences being staged in Alice Springs.
