Perth and Western Australia Meeting Planners Guide : 2016-2018 Meeting Planners Guide
Perth acity that has it all Our welcoming city is buzzing with new events, brimming with new and established hospitality options, bustling with interesting retail outlets and a changing urban landscape, yet it has retained its stunning beauty and sense of space. On the banks of the Swan River, Perth is a modern, sophisticated and multicultural city 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. • From fine dining to trendy new establishments and beachside cafés, Perth enjoys a thriving restaurant and bar scene that takes advantage of our abundant fresh produce. • The shopping alternatives are wide and varied, with international designer labels, Australian brands, high-street stores and local boutiques, alongside gorgeous giftware and contemporary and Aboriginal art. • Events create excitement and the city really comes into its own during the Perth International Arts Festival, the Fringe World Festival, the Perth Fashion Festival, Sculpture by the Sea, a multitude of mass participation events, as well as international and national sporting competitions held throughout the year. • Perth’s convention and events professionals have a typical West Australian entrepreneurial spirit, a ‘can do’ attitude and a team approach to make things happen and ensure their events are an outstanding success. Perth is safe and secure, with a reputation as one of the world’s friendliest cities - expect a warm welcome on arrival. 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. It’s the ideal business events destination Perth is a vibrant, yet easy-going city integrated with man-made marvels and surrounded by natural attractions - the beautiful Swan River, Kings Park and Botanic Garden and the breathtaking sandy beaches that border the Indian Ocean. Add bright blue skies and an average of eight hours sunshine every day, more than any other Australian capital city, and you’d have to agree that Perth really does have it all. That’s why delegates love to come here. 2016-18 Meeting Planners Guide
