Perth, Australia is home to some of the best conference venues and hotels in the country and what makes the destination so unique, is they are all situated on nature’s doorstep.

Holding a conference, exhibition or meeting in Perth means you will have access to some of the best venues, hotels (Australia’s only Ritz-Carlton Hotel is located here) and experiences in the Australian market. Perth is a destination that boasts endless sunshine, unparalleled natural wonders and phenomenal marine and terrestrial wildlife.

While international travel to Australia is limited at the moment, meeting planners and conveners can still discover what Perth has to offer with Business Events Perth’s new online interactive business event planner.

Alan showcases Perth’s enviable selection of premium hotels and unique indoor and outdoor venues, before exploring the breath-taking experiences that can be only found on Australia’s west coast.

The virtual tour takes you into the unparalleled beauty of Western Australia, where you can experience three UNESCO world heritage listed sites, including the world’s largest fringing reef, taste gourmet delights and wine in Australia’s most awarded fine wine region, and snap a selfie with Western Australia’s famously happy marsupial, the Quokka.

Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin
said Western Australia exemplifies the very best of what it means to hold a business event Down Under.

“Western Australia is one of the most undiscovered business events destinations in the world,” Mr Martin said.

“Here we are brimming with exceptional business event products, including brand new hotels, premium event facilities which are surround by natural riches and world class experiences, many that you can’t find anywhere else, making it the perfect destination for your next business event.”

When international delegates think of Australia, they think of friendly people, white sandy beaches, iconic wildlife such as kangaroos and wombats, warm weather, and sunny skies. 

Western Australia offers all this and more, and we hope our new interactive tool encourages business event organisers to consider planning an event here again soon.

While Australia’s international border remains closed, the local business event industry is innovating to accommodate the ‘new normal’ for business events.  

“When the time is right, we’re ready to welcome back international event attendees to discover our amazing State and demonstrate how to event here safely,” Mr Martin said.
