Darwin Convention Centre vs Google Maps

I’m heading up to Darwin next month to an education conference we’re sponsoring and I stumbled across something vastly amusing when researching the event.

Darwin Convention Centre on Google Maps

Here’s something that probably falls outside the bounds of what you’d think to run due diligence on: checking the venue an event is being hosted in has completed construction and is actually operational! Thankfully, the Darwin Convention Centre does, and Google is just a few months behind on the imaging.

It opened on July 1st and is part of a broader reinvigoration master plan for Darwin’s waterfront precinct. If you’ll be in Darwin between September 26-28 this year, check out the ACEL conference “Tipping Points” or get in touch.
