Every 2 years the Cactus & Succulent Societies of Australia and New Zealand hold a national conference, unfortunately due to the pandemic Covid-19 the Succulenticon proposed for 2020 has been rescheduled for 2021.
We are delighted to be the hosts for Succulenticon 2021, which will be held on 1 – 4 October 2021.
It will be held at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre and Hahndorf resort at Hahndorf, a wonderful site just 20 minutes’ drive from Adelaide CBD with modern convention facilities and restaurant with on-site accommodation and magnificent country views.
The convention centre is just a couple of minutes’ drive from the tourist town of Hahndorf, which has motels for alternative accommodation, hotels and cafes.
The Adelaide Hills region is a major tourist area, together with large scale fruit production and vineyards.
The centre’s website can be seen here: ahconventions
