Wayfarer TV: the best of Adelaide as the city readies to welcome Asia Pacific’s largest hotel industry event, AHICE 2024

by James Wilkinson

Over 1450 people are set to descend on Adelaide, South Australia next week (Apr 30-May 2) for the 15th annual Asia Pacific Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition (AHICE), the region’s largest and most influential accommodation industry event.

Over three days, over 250 speakers from across the globe will take the stage for engaging keynotes, evocative panel sessions and informative presentations spanning hotel operations, investment, travel trends and more.

As delegates prepare to descend on Adelaide, Wayfarer TV, a major partner of AHICE is proud to present a taste of Adelaide.

In the episode, Wayfarer’s award-winning Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Gregory Wilkinson, heads to two of the city’s hot new hotels, Crowne Plaza Adelaide and Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets, checks out Koomo restaurant, the Adelaide Central Market and looks at some of the best festivals on offer all-year-long.

AHICE is being held for the 4th time in South Australia this year and is being held from April 30 to May 2 at Eos by SkyCity and the Adelaide Oval. Final tickets are available at ahice.com.au

Qantas’ brilliant Boeing 737-800 Business Class cabin


Qantas operates direct flights to Adelaide from across Australia, with international connections via Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

On the long-haul flights, Qantas operates a mix of Airbus A330s, A380s and B787s that feature the airline’s suite-style Business Class cabin.

Qantas’ Business Class cabin is headlined by a ‘suite’ seat – now available on all the Boeing 787-9, Airbus A330-200 and Airbus A330-300 jets in the fleet and select Airbus A380-800s – that has been popular with executive and leisure travellers since it first arrived on the scene in 2016.

This next-generation Business Class seat from the Flying Kangaroo can be reclined for take-off and landing, and the cabin offering also includes top Australian food and wine and world-class entertainment.
