History and Vision

Established in 1972 the Perth Convention Bureau (PCB) is a Government of Western Australia - Tourism WA, City of Perth and industry funded organisation, chartered to market Perth and Western Australia to national and international not-for-profit association and corporate organisations with the intent of securing their high value association events and corporate and incentive groups.

Recent acknowledgement of PCB's value to the State was seen in the May 2016 WA State Budget increase of over 25% in PCB funding.

Successful stakeholder engagement with industry has resulted industry cooperative funding increasing from $800K in 2011 to over $1.6M in 2015.

In FY 2015/16 PCB secured over $108M in DDE for the State of Western Australia. DDE (Direct Delegate Expenditure) is a measure of the economic contribution of international NFP association conference delegates.

PCB's innovative strategies and process improvements have increased PCB’s ROI to Government, Tourism WA and the people of Western Australia from 1:17 FY 2009 to 1:30 in FY 2015.  

PCB’s Major Partners include the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and Crown Perth.
