ICHM is located in Adelaide, which is routinely voted by the Economist Intelligence Unit as one of the World’s top ten most liveable cities*. With a population of just over 1.2 million people, Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and considered to be the lifestyle capital of Australia. Adelaide has world-class art and music and a festival calendar to rival or better that of any other Australian city.
Adelaide also has a reputation as a city of restaurants, quality wine (70% of Australia’s export wine comes from South Australia) outdoor eating and a great lifestyle – it is an ideal place to come and learn the art of hospitality. The city is surrounded by parklands and sandwiched between white sandy beaches to the west and hills 20 minutes to the east.
Adelaide boasts a strong economy and is the home for many government and financial institutions. Most of these offices are situated throughout the city centre along the cultural boulevard of North Terrace and King William Street. Others are based in various districts of the metropolitan area.
