The ACC has two first aid facilities with qualified first aid staff readily available. The Centre is equipped with defibrillators. Any medical requirements should be directed to an ACC staff member, who will contact the appropriate person to assist.

The Adelaide Convention Center has two accessible, purpose-built parent rooms with private and secure facilities for feeding, changing, and other baby care needs.
We’ll be running a zone called chillspace in collaboration with headspace Adelaide. chillspace will be a quiet space that aims to be safe and inclusive for all to take a moment’s break from the rest of the Festival. This space will offer a few quiet activities, such as reading manga and plenty of room to rest and focus on relaxing.

Lifts throughout the ACC provide access to all levels of the venue. In addition, several external lifts give access to the Adelaide Convention Center from North Terrace and the Riverbank Promenade entrances. These will be clearly marked on the event floor map and signed throughout the venue.

The Adelaide Convention Center operates the Riverbank and North Terrace car parks, located directly underneath the Centre and operates 24 hours per day, seven days per week. The Riverbank car park is accessed via Festival Drive, whilst the North Terrace car park is accessed from North Terrace, immediately below Halls I, J & K. Accessible car parking spaces are located on each level. The Riverbank car park has a height restriction of 1.96m on Level One and 2m on Level Two.
