In almost 200 years of existence, the capital city of Western Australia has developed from the small Swan River Colony into the fourth largest city of the Australian continent which is home to approximately 2 million people. Despite its geographical isolation, it is rather prosperous thanks to the natural resources of the state such as oil, gas, diamonds, coal, iron ore and gold. The city is relatively self-sufficient with some food and product manufacturing while other products are imported from eastern Australia. As the administrative center of the state, the government employs many people. Several large mining companies are headquartered here or at least have significant presence.
Perth is visited by over 3 million people annually (of which around 400 thousand are international visitors) which makes tourism an important revenue-generating sector. Despite the large distance one must travel to reach this riverside city, it is well worth it as Perth is among the top 10 most livable cities in the world. 265 days of sunshine a year make people in Western Australia particularly optimistic and friendly. Its mild climate, amazing nearby Indian Ocean beaches, numerous museums (maritime, science, planetarium, prison, military, aviation), attractions (aquarium, wine route, vivid local art scene and festivals), heritage sites and intriguing architecture (Perth Arena) make it a very attractive place for life, visiting and work. City center offers great shopping areas (pedestrian shopping streets and galleries), spacious green spaces (Kings Park, Perth Zoo) and memorials accessible by walking.
Perth is becoming more and more accessible as a MICE destination due to a variety of service providers and attractive after business leisure activities for delegates and attendees. Majority of business venues are centrally located directly within the city business district and there are also more relaxed beachside hotels, yacht and golf clubs, halls in museums and historical buildings to be rented. Event organizers can choose from a wide range of venues that cater for large to small groups and supply to corporate or private clients. From board meetings, workshops, seminars, conferences and trade shows, there is a venue in Perth that will meet your expectations.
