Perth Perth

New name for Perth Convention Bureau

After 48 years of being the Perth Convention Centre the bureau has changed its name to Business Events Perth reflecting not only a new identity but a ‘re-energised strategy to lure events and conferences to Western Australia.

Announcing the six-day-old new name at AIME, chief executive office, Gareth Martin, said the new identity better defined the evolution of modern day corporate events, conferences and trade shows as well as reflecting on Perth’s growth which is heading the state capital towards becoming Australia’s third biggest city, taking the mantle from Brisbane.
