Perth, Western Australia

With exquisite coastal scenery and a relaxed atmosphere, Perth is a vibrant and contemporary city, rich in culture and commerce. Surrounded by pristine natural environs including the Swan River, Kings Park and the Indian Ocean, Perth is breathtakingly beautiful with plenty to see and do. Boasting magnificent weather and an average of eight hours of sunshine every day (that’s more than any other Australian capital city), a thriving local food and wine scene and modern facilities, Perth ticks all the boxes. That’s why delegates love to come here.

A welcoming community that is brimming with new and established hospitality venues, retail outlets and business centres, Perth’s urban landscape continues to grow and evolve, while still retaining its stunning natural beauty and sense of space. Supported by a robust economy, the city is booming and has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years that continues to improve and broaden the scope of what’s on offer.

Billion-dollar investments in infrastructure projects have facilitated an impressive change in the face of the city with the completion of the world-class 60,000 seat venue Optus Stadium, the inner-city community space linking Perth and Northbridge Perth City Link and Yagan Square and the waterfront entertainment precinct Elizabeth Quay. With exciting projects underway and on the horizon, construction of buildings, attractions and open spaces is progressing.

In the past ten years, over 4000 hotel rooms have been added to the Perth market, from luxury brands – Crown Perth, The Westin, InterContinental, Aloft and Ritz Carlton to boutique offerings – COMO The Treasury and the Alex Hotel. With so many options to choose from, a stay in Perth is sure to be tasteful, stylish and comfortable.

With a reputation as one of the world’s friendliest cities, Perth is welcoming and safe. A thriving restaurant and bar scene that takes advantage of abundant fresh produce, entertainment hubs can be found in inner 
city locales such as Leederville, Northbridge, Subiaco and Mount Lawley, as well as along the beaches in Scarborough, Cottesloe and Fremantle.

The shopping alternatives are wide and varied, with international designer labels, Australian brands, high-street stores and local artisan markets, as well as bespoke contemporary and Aboriginal art.

An impressive calendar of events brings the city to life, with locals and visitors alike enjoying the excitement of the Perth Festival, Fringe World Festival, Perth Fashion Festival, Sculpture by the Sea, myriad mass participation events, as well as international and national sporting competitions staged throughout the year.

Perth’s convention and events professionals have a typically Western Australian friendliness and entrepreneurial spirit, a ‘can do’ attitude and a team approach to make things happen and ensure their events are an outstanding success. Customer service in this field is second to none.

Perth is in the same time zone as 60 per cent of the world’s population, including Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines, making it  an ideal business events destination.
