The HEIA National Conference Host Committee is excited to welcome delegates to Adelaide with a complementary welcome drink and finger food platters at the Prohibition Liquor Co. Tasting Room. This will be an opportunity to mingle with fellow conference delegates and stay on for another drink or head off to explore more of Adelaide’s dining scene. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic options will be available.

Located in the heart of the city, Prohibition Liquor Co. features the impressive 900L copper pot still (affectionately named Mary) and a selection of over 100 gins from both their own range and other suppliers.

Experience an unforgettable conference dinner at the National Wine Centre of Australia’s Exhibition Hall. This iconic venue features lifted architecture and an elegant ambience and view to the outdoor terrace.

The conference dinner will be a special occasion to celebrate the 30th anniversary of HEIA. In keeping with the anniversary theme, delegates are encouraged to bring a piece of memorabilia with them from within their years of teaching.

Connect with fellow delegates, savour the flavours of Australian winemaking, and enjoy an evening of culinary delights. The conference dinner ticket is inclusive of a two-course dinner and welcome beverage on arrival. Additional beverages may be purchased from the bar using cash or EFTPOS.
