Perth Sees Boom in Conventions
The Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre has reported that there should be a very positive year ahead for 2016, building on the successes of 2015.
Q1+Q2 2015 saw an considerable increase in the number of bookings for events. There has been an influx of new event organisers within Australia and internationally who are now looking to the city to host their shows.
Nigel Keen, General Manager of the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre said, “Comparing our most recent figures with those from October 2014, we’ve seen a 28 per cent increase in revenue on confirmed business for January to June 2016. The first half of 2015 was a busy time, but there’s a real sense of excitement at the moment thanks to some key events which will grace our shores next year.”
Key upcoming events include: The energy industry’s flagship LNG 18 Exhibition and Summit which will bring 5000+ people to the city, The 17th Ottawa Conference and the 2016 Australian and New Zealand Association for Health Professional Educators Conference. In addition to this, a range of other medical, dentistry and pharmaceutical shows are set to come to the city over the next 18 months
