Convention Centre’s Regattas another victim of pandemic pause

Published on : Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Closed since lockdown in March 2020, the management of the Government-owned Adelaide Convention Centre has decided to remain closed its waterfront Regattas Restaurant, owing to uncertain conditions casted out-of the virus threat.

The restaurant that underwent a remarkable refurbishment just two years ago has remained closed since March, due to the coronavirus restrictions imposed by the Adelaide Venue Management Corporation and it even reduced its 850 casual staff across the Centre, along with the Entertainment Centre and Coopers Stadium.

Recently the CEO Anthony Kirchner mailed their staffs stating that they have decided to close Regattas Restaurant indefinitely due to the unfamiliar conditions and poor business opportunities. The decision was taken owing to poor trading scopes and limited chances of growth and sustenance as studied by the management.

Over the years the Gilbert Suite evolved as one of the favourite sports for meetings and corporate meets and they plan to support public and corporates with an alternative meeting area which the Regattas. However, the Regattas will remain closed until further notice, and Kirchner mentioned that they have decided to use this available space for meetings and functions.

Since Regattas could only host around 100 people while the Home Ground is capable of holding approximately 280, and its can be serviced from three different service points, thus is easier for the management to ensure services during meetings and also take large booking.

AVMC’s operations have been among the hardest hit by the combined impact of public gathering and travel restrictions under COVID-19.
