Australia’s Premier Mark McGowan recently announced that Western Australia can now accept delegated from low-risk states without the self-quarantine limitation. The news found Business Events Perth ready to accept an increasing number of events as confidence among conference organisers is rising.
The Convention Bureau had already launched the local Event Here Now campaign, aimed at supporting the industry; in fact, event organisers are offered up to $30,000 in sponsorship for new business events through this campaign.
“Since we launched the Event Here Now initiative in August we’ve supported more than 50 business events, bringing more than 18,000 West Aussies together to connect, collaborate and share ideas and knowledge, and with a further 47 State-based events currently under development, we look forward to welcoming interstate delegates back to Western Australia to once again experience our incredible State,” says Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin.
A number of new venues and experiences have recently opened or will open before the end of the year, including Perth’s first permanent floating venue, The Raft, a new zip line and bridge climb on Matagarup Bridge, the highly anticipated WA Museum Boola Bardip, and a brand new 5-star resort, Samphire Rottnest, which sits in a prime beachfront location on Rottnest Island.
