Perth and Western Australia Meeting Planners Guide : 2016-2018 Meeting Planners Guide
2016-18 Meeting Planners Guide Welcome Welcome to Western Australia Perth and Western Australia are experiencing exciting times. We have many major development projects in motion which are changing the face of our capital city to create landmarks, waterfronts and vital transport links. While there is significant development underway, West Australians continue to enjoy the benefits of our beautiful surrounds, fresh air, stunning Swan River and beaches, great weather and clear blue skies. Perth has been rated amongst the world’s top 10 most liveable cities every year for the past 10 years. Western Australia is a resource rich region, providing a significant hub for the global resources sector and reflecting Western Australia’s growing importance as a leading regional economy in the Asia-Pacific Region and Indian Ocean Rim. With planned projects transforming our skyline and city laneways opening to hidden restaurants and small bars, Perth is a city in renaissance. The Elizabeth Quay development, at the heart of the new Perth, offers a premium waterfront destination which returns the city’s focus to the iconic Swan River. Investments in new hotels, the upcoming world-class new Perth Stadium and the significant expansion of Perth Airport underlie confidence in Western Australia as a world-class tourism destination. Outside the city, business tourism attractions range from world-class resorts in the tropical paradise of Broome, to the exquisite destination of Margaret River Wine Region in the South West. With an exciting year-round events calendar, including the new iconic events Margaret River Gourmet Escape and Fringe World, visitors will be inspired and delighted. I look forward to welcoming you and your delegates to Western Australia and sharing our beautiful, safe, friendly, world-class city and our pleasant year-round climate as the perfect destination for your meetings and events.
